Hello All -  In this alert we're sharing a project started by a few Ripple Kids that has spread across 3 schools - now that's the Ripple Effect! Read about how you can support their efforts by starting a drive of your own!

We also wanted to let you know about a Ripple Kids Challenge that will run November 4-18 with one of our new partners - You have the chance to share your creativity online and help homeless animals at the same time! Because it's all online, it doesn't matter where you live!

See below for more information. Remember, if you have a project that you would like us to share, please reply back to this email and we'll help you out.

Keep the Ripple Going!!

We are partnering with Nanoogo who will be launching a Ripple Kids Challenge to help homeless animals on Sunday November 4th. You can enter for the chance to win money to adopt an animal or donate money to your favorite shelter!

Note: you don't have to live locally to enter the challenge - it's all online!

Nanoogo is an online platform for kids where they can show their ideas, challenge creativity, solve real world problems, imagine things, and share their dreams with other kids around the world.   
Check out their site - it's cool! You can also register now (it's free!) so you're ready for when the challenge starts! Check out the 'upcoming challenges' for more details about the Ripple Kids Challenge.
