JUMPING PILLOW

$4,440 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 77 people in 54 months
I have a favor to ask of my friends family. There is a school in St. Johns that educates special education students from birth to age 26. It has been brought to my attention that the school has been fundraising for 2 years in order to purchase an outdoor jumping pillow. My cousin Brent who attended this school has a birthday today and in honor of him I am setting up this fundraiser. The total cost is around $15,000 and after numerous fundraisers they have raised $10,000. The school has had field trips to Uncle Johns Cider Mill where they have one of these pillows and My friend explained  ALL the kids can use it regardless of their weight and/or ability unlike the current playground equipment. These are our kids....Clinton County residents.  I was discussing this last night with a friend and my sisters they said they would love to donate so I thought maybe if people knew about this they  would also donate a few dollars . I am posting a link and asking anyone that feels called to donate a to please do so. I do not work there, but will make sure all money collected minus the small percentage gofund me collects will be used for this pillow. Thanks so much!!!

Thanks to everyone that has donated to this fundraiser. Your generosity is VERY much APPRECIATED. We did want you all to see that even the students at the school are donating some of their hard earned money to this great piece of equipment. This check was presented to Teacher Heather for the jumping pillow by a classroom at the school. This particular classroom spends time creating crafts and selling the crafts at the school cafe and uses this money for community based instruction. The students have been working on community service projects this year and saw great value in giving back to their own school community. It definitely helps that even as adults they will have the opportunity to bounce too.

Thank you to everyone who has donated toward this jumping pillow. I received a picture from my girlfriend Lori tonight. Her son Carson (6 year old) handed her this money and told her to give it to me for the kids for the jumping pillow :-). I also received a check in the mail today. Can you please share ?

Amy, I was touched to learn about your cousin Brett and all of your efforts to help his school purchase the jumping pillow! I am hoping that this contribution will help get the students the pillow soon, so that they can start jumping right away. If I'm ever in Fowler, I'll make sure to come try it out. :)
