Poles: 6 more stars needed.

The wood preservation is completely funded, so we now will move onto the poles!

Item needed: Poles
Total Cost: $45

Stars needed: 6 stars at $5 each. ( $15 already raised.)

I would also like to mention how the fundraising thermometers will work. I realise that they are a great way for everyone one to keep track of donations, so we will keep 2 going at a time. One for the current need(i.e pian hooks) and one for the completed project(i.e wood preservation)

When you make a donation for a star, please include a note with the name you would like to appear on your star, picture of yourself(optional), your city or country, and the color you would like your star to be. Please give two color options incase your first color is not available. You can also make a star to honor someone, and be sure to include their information.

Be a star: Wood Preservation

Welcome to 2010 everyone! The biggest goal for this year is of course to build the school.

To kick things off, we have come up with a really fun fundraiser. We have been able to accomplish great things this year at the sister school, Christian Upliftment Primary School in Kampala. This includes building a washroom, purchasing land with plans of building an orphanage on it, and having many of our students sponsored! All of this was possible because of the generosity of all of you!

We want to bring the same hope to the children of Apac.

It's not about one person doing it all, it's about everyone coming together and doing what they can!

The Star Fundraiser

The children and community are patiently waiting and very excited to finally have a school to educate the children of Apac in their community.
Although you will be a superstar to the children and they would love to meet you, i'm sure it would be tough to get everyone to Apac! Instead, we will also be putting up decorative stars in honor of your donation! The stars will be handmade and each one around 7 inches, or larger ones for donations of an item in full. The star will include your name, and map of your country, as well as a photo of yourself if you would like to have one put one on your star. The stars will then be put up in the classrooms for the children to see how many people cared about them so much they wanted to be their star and bring them education!

This fundraiser will only work if everyone does what they can to help. Most stars will be $3-15 depending on the amount of people needed to purchase an item. Once we have the amount of stars needed to buy the item, I will put up the next amount of stars needed and what they are needed for. If we go beyond our goal on any day(i.e 6 stars needed and received donations for 8) the money will be put towards the next item.

So to start things off, we need four people(stars) to donate $6 for the wood preservation, which is $24.00!

To purchase a star, please make your donation of $6 on the right hand side of this blog. Send an e-mail to with the name you would like on the star, your country or city, and a photo(optional)! I will send you an image of your star before they are in Uganda, and when they make it there!
