Hi All - Hope you are enjoying your summer! These relaxing summer months are a perfect time to take action in your community and have fun at the same time. Ripple Kids is issuing a SUMMER CHALLENGE
to all of our Ripple Kids to get out there and help others!
I'll be sending out emails throughout the summer with project ideas and completed projects from Ripple Kids like you. When you complete a project, submit it on www.ripplekids.com
and I will include it in our next newsletter to let everyone know that you stepped up to meet the challenge!Win a donation to your favorite charity!!
As an added incentive, we will hold a raffle for all projects submitted through August 31st 2012. If your project is selected, Ripple Kids will donate $50 to the charity identified in your project! To be eligible, submit a project between now and August 31st, 2012; Total awards - 2 ($50 each); Charity must be a Nonprofit 501(c)3.
___________________________________________________________________Idea #1 Have a lemonade stand or bake sale to raise money for your favorite cause! Who doesn't love an ice cold glass of lemonade or yummy treat on a hot day? Remember to let people know where their money is going. If you make big signs, make sure to include the charity name so people are more likely to stop. RK Tip: rather than pricing each cup or item, offer a cup with each donation of any size. You'll find that people are very generous when they know you are collecting for a cause and it simplifies the process.
