Innovative support for Clean Water!

The 8th grade students at Shelton Intermediate School's School of Innovation 8 read the book A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park. This story tells the real-life experiences of Salva Dut, a Lost Boy of Sudan who came to America and started the charity, Water for South Sudan,Inc. The students have been deeply affected by this story and are empowered to make a change with global implications!
 $15,000  provides a village of approximately 300 South Sudanese with clean water for decades. We understand how lucky we are to have what we have in life and it is our hope to help save others' lives!
For the past 15 months, we have collected loose change, recycled bottles,  sold homemade candy, gift baskets, and visited local businesses for assistance.
We've raised  $15,010 on our own so far but we definitely need your help! We're trying to be the Iron Giraffe Challenge "Super School" and we have one week left. The IGC ends Friday April 5, 2019.
We've done the math- every $50 saves a life!
Please support us as we try to make the world a better, safer place for others!
The funds go directly to Water for South Sudan, Inc!
Thank you for your support!
The students and staff of Shelton Intermediate's School of Innovation 8,  Shelton, Connecticut
