Hello Red Hill and Arroyo Elementary Families - 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 Arroyo and Red Hill Ripple Kids to get out there and help others!
You should have received a flyer from your school with a tracking form on the bottom to track the number of hours you've spent helping others. Turn in your form the first week of school and YOU will be recognized at the first Flag Ceremony with a Ripple Kids Certificate! (Click here to download flyers - Arroyo Red Hill
NEW!! Win $$ for your charity! If you complete 10 or more service hours during the summer, your name will go into a raffle for the chance to win a $50 donation (courtesy of Ripple Kids) for your favorite charity! Note: must be a Nonprofit 501(c)3; two project winners per school.
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! Please include your school name in the body of the form.
__________________________________________________________________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 an item 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.
