In addition to our Paying Forward Kindness program, we offer an act of kindness fundraising service for schools.
Many schools need to raise funds each year. Often students are selling candy or other products with little connection to their education. Our acts of kindness program offers life-memorable and joy filled acts of kindness. Specifically, we help children in the United States and children in Africa help each other.
We offer three fundraising options.
1. Profit up to 85% with a self-run event that benefits from our expertise and technology system.
2. Profit up to 75% with our one week acts of kindness program. Students meet children in Africa via video conferencing. Our team runs the fund raising event saving staff and parents hundreds of hours of volunteer time.
3. Profit up to 70% with education delivered over three weeks. This is our full-service and most comprehensive fundraising program. Our team coordinates every aspect of the program.
The primary self-run school fundraising activity consists of student participating in a 1 mile "fun run" or "water walk" activity. The process starts with the school principal sending an email to parents informing them of the fundraiser and the prizes that their children can earn. Often the laps completed by students are structured as 1/16th of a mile. An option is for each participant to receive a Children of Compassion T-shirt. When combined with upbeat music, the run or walk is a lot of fun for everyone involved.
A sample student page generated by the Children of Compassion system is shown below.
Hi, I am participating in an act of kindness to help raise funds for my school and children in Africa. Specifically, we are carrying water for 1 mile as part of a learning experience to help us be global citizens. Unfortunately, children in Africa sometimes cannot go to school because they travel long distances to obtain water for their family. I am hoping you will support me because by raising $200 I can help a child in Africa go to school. My goal is to find 10 or more sponsors. Please click on the donation button to sponsor me.
