CAC Service Learning and Fundraising News

 

Jar O’Sunshine

Tuesday March 6th, 2018, 3:05 PM - Front Gate

The sunshine jar charity initiative  by the Elementary School Student Jude El Mofty grade 4 & her mum. The story started when Jude became interested in service, Yet she thought that all we can do is to donate money. Jude’s mom wanted to teach her that we have more to give and the most precious thing we can give is time and effort. So she decided on the Jar O’Sunshine. Together they chose the 365 quote carefully, worked on designing the Jars and assembled the jars with 365 quote each. The main message behind the initiative, is teach all the students that we can start by donating something small amount of money, energy, and time and this will result of seed to other greater causes. All Proceeds will go to AHL Masr Foundation (the Burn Hospital).

 

A 365 quote jar . A quote a day . This initiative started out simply to teach jude that charity is not only donating money . Charity can be a lot of things . For us we chose to work on an idea that had so much detail & work . But it spreads happiness & positivity. So , we can do good & make everyone feel good .
