Charity Fundraisers & Donations
RDMS Ambassadors are frequently involved in the planning and organization of school-wide fundraisers. In order to identify which charity receives the donation, Ambassadors visit homerooms and distribute questionnaires for students and staff to vote on their favorite charity. The charity with the most votes is the winner. Following this vote, the Ambassadors decide how the money will be raised or how the items will be collected. The fun then begins!
Some examples of past charity donations include:
Some highlights of past fundraiser activities include:
Spring 2010 Fundraiser: We participated in a fundraiser called Penny Wars, for which all proceeds went towards helping Haiti. Students voted for teachers to engage in a "dare", such as getting their head shaved, pie eating contest, video game tournament and water balloon tournament. All pennies counted as a vote for the teacher, and all other money (change and bills) counted as a vote against the teachers. The culmination of events occurred on February 12th in the Auditorium at 1:45 p.m.
