Ms. G's Water for Southern Sudan
At the conclusion of the story, we researched the main character, Salva, and discovered that he had started a non-profit organization called Water for Sudan. We further discovered how many people are without clean water, and were truly moved and inspired to do what we could to raise money for this worthy cause.
Why $5000? Because this will be the cost to have a well in Southern Sudan dedicated to the children in the fourth grade at Fowler School in Maynard.
It is my sincerest hope that the children in my class understand their role as global citizens, and it couldn't get more grass roots or heartfelt than a group of ten year old students wanting to raise money to make a difference in the world. They have moved me beyond words, so I am honored to give my best effort to help them reach their goal.
For more information on the non-profit organization, Water for Southern Sudan, please visit the following link. All of the proceeds from this effort will go directly to this cause, regardless of whether we meet our goal, and I believe that your donation would be tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your support!
