CHHS bus to March for Our Lives

$3,750 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 92 people in 8 months
Created February 28, 2018
We are raising money to charter a bus to bring Croton Harmon High School students to Washington DC for the March for Our Lives on March 24, 2018.  

In response to the epidemic of mass shootings in the United States, most recently the shooting at a high school in Parkland, FL, people all across the country will be marching in DC to demand more gun control.

This movement has been largely teen- and student-led, and is one that many Croton students feel passionately about.  We deserve to feel safe in schools.

Please consider donating and/or sharing this page with family and friends!

We want this trip to be accessible to any students interested and therefore do not want to require any students to pay to come on this trip. However, we encourage anyone interested to donate what they can.

This page is run by Samantha Rubin on behalf of Croton Harmon High School Students interested in marching at the March for Our Lives.  Funds will be used first to pay for a bus to DC and back from Croton-on-Hudson.  If more money than what is needed is raised, it will be donated to Everytown for Gun Safety

If for whatever reason we are not able to go to DC (if we don't raise enough money or if we don't organize in time), all funds will be donated to Everytown for Gun Safety which works to end gun violence by advocating for gun control.

Hi everyone,

We have some great news; thanks to the money raised from this GoFundMe, from the bake sale at the Black Cow (going on now!), and from selling ribbons and wristbands, we have reached our fundraising goal for the trip to the DC!!

This means that any money we make from here on out will be donated to Everytown for Gun Safety.

We are also currently taken steps to make sure this movement continues in our community. We have started a club in our school called "Students Against Gun Violence," where we will continue to fight for gun control.

Also, to thank anyone who has donated, we would like to offer a free rubber bracelet (they say "#neveragain" and "Croton For Gun Control") and/or an orange ribbon which says "#enough" or "Never Again"! We are at the Black Cow currently (Saturday) and will be here for a couple more hours, or you can contact us at studentmarchc@gmail.com and we can figure out the best way to get them to you. We are also planning an event at the Black Cow after the march where we will be showing pictures, videos, and reading journal entries from the march. All who donated are invited, and more information will be available at a later date.

Thanks!

First off, thank you to all who have donated so far; we are blown away by the amount of support we have received!!

We have a few updates for those who are interested:

Yesterday, the bus was officially confirmed!

The student walkout at CHHS today was very emotional and inspirational. We heard student speeches, a group performance of Hallelujah, and let everyone know what they could do to get involved. We also provided information about the bus from Croton to DC, and many more students signed up to join us.

This Saturday, March 17th, we are having a bake sale at the Black Cow! We will be there from 9 am until we sell out.

Again, thank you to all who have supported us, through monetary contributions and all other efforts made on our behalf. It is all greatly appreciated, we could not be where we are now without you!
