As you already know, the recent earthquake tragedy in Haiti has devastated the lives of millions of people. Possibly 300,000 individuals have died, with hundreds of thousands of more injured, and relief workers are doing all they can to provide shelter, food and medical treatment to those in need.
As a UNICEF Child Representative and Ambassador, I am launching a fundraising challenge to all youth and schools throughout Canada to raise funds for the Haitian relief efforts. I am asking each student to raise a minimum of $100. Please get your schools involved now in helping the people and – especially the children – of Haiti.
To have a little fun, I will shave my head in honour of the school or student that raises the greatest amount of funds. That’s right. I’m going to shave my head, faux hawk and all! There are a thousand different ways to raise funds. So get together with friends and start brainstorming for those unique ideas that are sure to make your school the leading fundraiser.
Also, you can go to my UNICEF fundraising website by clicking here and make a donation to the Haitian relief efforts right now. You can even start your own or your school’s fundraising webpage here. You can then send this link to your own contacts to donate and keep track of your fundraising progress. So please don’t wait another minute.
I want to thank you so much for helping to save lives. And remember, “Together We Can Make A Difference.”
