Please adopt this school and help them get books!

Hi, Everybody! I seldom ask you for anything but today is an exception.

This morning it’s on my heart to try to do more to help the little local elementary school where my husband attended (never mind how long ago that was), and where in later years all our four daughters started their education in the system. 

There is a fundraiser challenge going on for high-needs schools, but only for a few more days — don’t worry! I’m not asking you for money — through which schools can win books. BOOKS! Books are so important and funding is inadequate to provide what the school needs, as I’m sure you realize is the case for many schools.

PLEASE, would you kindly click HERE to go to Adopt a School and once there click on ADOPT A SCHOOL.  At some point on the site you may have to sign up but it’s safe and not tying you into anything unless you want to opt in for updates or something. It is simply to record your votes.

Follow the links on there. Where you see ‘search for your school’ look at the list and click on NS (Nova Scotia). That will take you to the list of schools in NS that are taking part in this challenge. You will see Gaspereau Valley Elementary School – currently at the bottom of the far right column.  That’s the one you want. Click on it and that takes you to where you can vote. OR you can donate money to buy books if you want to – every $12 buys 10 votes!

Here’s ‘the thing’: the top three schools with the most adopts win books. Gaspereau Valley Elementary is a small school up against some much bigger ones, so there are fewer people voting. As I write this GVE ranks 11th on the list of 28 NS schools. PLEASE VOTE and help us make top three! Our children love to read and very much need more BOOKS for their library. It doesn’t have to cost you anything but a minute a day.

The challenge is running from September 20 – October 10. Here is the page explaining how it works. PLEASE HELP. VOTE EVERY DAY

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙂

Do you enjoy helping with things like this?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂
