Raised by 288 people in 8 months
The MSD Robotics Team from Parkland, FL is working towards the First Robotics competition in Orlando, FL in March. My daughter is on this team. My daughter was in that freshman building on February 14th. Due to those horrific events, these kids can't even do the small things like sell the chocolate they were selling to raise money for the travel expenses to the competition. The chocolate is still in that building. Is that important? No. But this shouldn't have happened. We are very thankful for this robotics program at MSD. It has been incredibly helpful in giving these students a common goal and a much needed distraction. It is small, but it is important to me to raise money so they don't have to worry about paying for this trip. All funds will go directly into the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Breaking Bot Team 5196 account.+ Read More
UPDATE: Thank you so very much to everyone - family, friends, teams across the country, and all the people with no affiliation at all that still contributed and sent loving thoughts. We are overwhelmed with the support we have seen all across the country. Within 4 days, we reached our initial goal. We increased it to cover incidentals and a potential trip to National's in Houston. We met that new goal 2 days later! Again - Thank you. This team is relatively new (this is their 5th year) so I will be leaving the fund open for 1 more week for anyone that still feels compelled to help bolster the team's supplies and (thinking positively) help with a trip to Nationals.
Thanks to everyone who has donated to this cause. We really appreciate all your generosity. Due to the current school shutdown and how chaotic things may be upon return, my plan is to transfer the funds into my personal account and immediately transfer to the team. I will send a final update with how much raised and confirmation of the transfer. Thanks again for all your support.
