On December 13 at 5 to 6:30 pm, Carol Muhn and Consuelo Montoya sold bracelets for Syrian refugees in Lebanon. The bracelets were sold for a dollar at the AdVenture Charity Fair. The bracelets will be sold again for a schoolwide fundraiser for Herman. You can get the bracelets for a dollar from your first period teacher by placing an order for the bracelets. They will only be available for a limited time in February. They will raise funds to donate to the charity, Beyond Association. Beyond Association provides education for refugee children in Lebanon.

Ms. Muhn and Ms. Montoya went to visit the Syrian refugees in Lebanon and are starting fundraisers to raise money for the refugees. There are going to be several fundraisers such as a bracelet fundraiser, a coin war, and a booth at AdVenture’s charity fair. They have a goal of $1,050 to raise for Herman and AdVenture. They also have a personal goal of $30,000.

“I watched a documentary about the Syrian refugee crisis and it spoke out to me. I wanted to help out the crisis. I’m hoping to go visit the refugee camp in Lebanon again this summer,” Ms. Muhn said. They want raise $1,050 to support three kids in Lebanon for the school. Ms. Muhn and Ms. Montoya have a personal goal of $30,000 to help build a school for the refugees. With that, they are doing their own campaign outside of school. 

Beyond Association is a UNICEF supported charity that provides education for children in Lebanon.  UNICEF stands for United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund but is most referred as UNICEF. They provide education, medical, and psychosocial support for refugee families and combats child labor. UNICEF provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers. UNICEF works in 190 countries to save children’s lives, protect their rights, and help them fulfill their potential.

Ms. Muhn and Ms. Montoya has a student group that helps with the fundraiser. The group uses their lunch to work on this project.

    I like the introduction on how you can donate and then later say what the money is going to be doing and also how much money they want to raise.

    Good coverage, Hannah! I appreciate the coverage on UNICEF and Beyond Association. The contributions of ideas and work from the student group at school is a huge part of this project.
