A letter from a grade 3 student

Dear Parents,
My name is Lucas from 3SY, I have been thinking about what happened in Japan over the weekend. It was devastating to think that parts of Japan had been wiped out. I was also sad to know that it would be awhile before Japan recovered and could live normally again.  I was thinking that we could have a special week where students collect spare change and drop in their class casual dress day jars.  At the end of the week I will collect it with G3 students and Miss Kas. We are going to count the money and send a check from HKA in the amount of all the change. We will send it to a charity that has been helping Japan raise money to buy stuff like, fresh food, water, clean clothes and stuff to help rebuild houses. The charity is called, Save the Children. If you would like to know more about how they are helping Japan recover, please go to this website: http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.6115947/k.8D6E/Official_Site.htm.  I think this will help give them the essentials that they will need. 

I have named my initiative Donate Change to Make a Change. I need your help in telling your children. I have sent an email to their teachers too. I will also make posters with students from G3 and Miss Kas and I may come to lunch and snack to make an announcement saying," Remember to bring in your spare change!".
I will plan to come to assembly and share how much money was raised and how it is going to be used.


Sincerely,
Lucas Eliot
3SY student for Donate Change to Make a Change

Hi Andy,
Yesterday at math night I donated some change to the jar. I'm going to collect loose change over the week.
