Since we are not having WW days, the teachers usually apply for the $400 grants and instead we gave
$100 to the teachers.
Wendy-should be receiving and email soon from the WW day committee, they still plan to do the raffles
Ann-sheet fundraiser middle and elementary schools. 100% virtual and contact free. 3 to 4 days they get
them. The more people on board the more money. If 150 families sell 10 sheets its 15,000. Parent letter
one week before the kick off, prizes how to log in, danas testimonial, and directions to get the store
going. Zoom call to kick off. Amazon gift cards as prizes for the kids. They can make a few hundred bucks
in amazon cards. Sharing the link on facebook or email and they can automatically go there. Have
everyone at least buy one set for the house. Far reaching. 1800 thread count $49.00 per sheet. Kick off
in the next few weeks. Delivers fast.
Red hill masks made for the kids to buy at school, hopefully in the next few weeks. Not a huge money
maker but cool gear.
