Raising Money for Seeds of Africa
By Shannon About Seeds Of Africa
Hello, my name is Shannon. I am twelve years old. As you all know, Siobhan, my dad Mike, and my cousin Sara went to Ethiopia and made a documentary on their trip to raise money. I was also in the documentary and I met Atti, who is the founder of Seeds of Africa, a school in Ethiopia that helps underprivileged children. I wanted to help Ethiopia. I wanted to help Atti’s school because she is doing everything she can to help these kids. Also, my sister has done a lot of fundraising for Ethiopia and I decided I wanted to do something too.
My idea is to make bracelets. The bracelets I make are handmade using embroidery floss. I make them in all different colors, but mostly in the Ethiopian flag colors – red, blue, green, and yellow. I am thinking I could make the bracelets and sell them for $1.50 each. I can them sell them at my dad’s office, Changing Our World, and at AmeriCares, a non-profit emergency response and global health organization. I would ship the money I raise to Atti’s school in Ethiopia, and they could use the money for food, school supplies, uniforms, and anything else that they needed. My goal is to sell 65 bracelets.
Please buy a bracelet and help Ethiopia!
