Kids Against Hunger is a non profit organization that enables kids to pack meals of specially designed nourishing food for children in malnourished nations around the world. Each meal costs 25 cents so 100 meals costs $25.
In order for our school to participate in this kindness project, we are asking the students of Mohr Elementary to raise $5 each to pay for the cost of the food that we are bagging. Greater donations are also encouraged! Please bring your donations in cash or check (made payable to Kids Against Hunger) in an envelope or baggie, by Friday, August 30th. Students will turn their donations into their teachers :)
**We would like for the kids to see if they can come up with a way to earn the money on their own and then donate it. Some ideas include: doing chores around the house or collecting spare change. Earning and donating the money will be a much more valuable experience than just being given the money. Also, please have your child bring in their $5 as soon as possible and share how they earned it :) They will be encouraging others and demonstrating how helping others can be fun!
