Many of us are familiar with “Night at the Museum” movies. When it came time for the annual fundraising event at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, they decided to hold an event where people could visit the museum and watch some of the displays come to life as they have watched in the movie. The museum enlisted the help of the local high school theatre students who helped pull off a successful night of fundraising. Over a thousand people attended the event which raised more than $20,000!

Bishop Savaryn Elementary School had great success on their unique school fundraising idea. The school, inspired by their 6th grade student Julian Alex, decided to create and sell Braille Christmas Cards for $1 each. Julian is unable to see through the center of his eyes making it impossible to read print. He was initially the only one at the school learning Braille, but soon other students and friends followed his footsteps. Currently there is a whole Braille club at the school.

When children at the Family Development Center are in need of supplies such as boots, coats, and toys for Christmas, the kids from the Silverhouse (a small learning community where students learn “survival skills”) at Roseburg High School know how the chip in! This year the students raised $2,400 running laps around the schools track for pledges. One student ran 46 laps in the cold 30-degree weather. The 11.5-mile trip didn’t seem to be much of a challenge for the freshman however, for she was quoted calling the jog, “A good work out.”
