We want to say a big THANK YOU to all the schools across Saskatchewan who raised money for TeleMiracle 46! We appreciate the fact that they fit it into their very busy schedules and maneuvered around the COVID restrictions! We know it wasn’t easy.
We thought we’d share what a couple of Saskatchewan schools did this year to put the “fun” in fundraiser! Thanks to them and all those who donated to TeleMiracle 46, the Kinsmen Foundation can continue with its mission of “Helping People Every Day”.
Weyburn Comprehensive School
“Our Student Representative Council (SRC) decided that they wanted to contribute to TeleMiracle this year. They tapped two community members on the shoulder who were willing to tell their personal stories of how TeleMiracle helped their families in their greatest time of need.
We recorded their stories, put them into a short video, and showed it to our entire school in a small, virtual assembly. This video had a huge impact. Lots of students know of these people in our community so donations started pouring in.
Teachers were also competing against each other in their classes, creating a friendly but fun challenge! The two teachers that raised the most money in their classes received donuts as a prize.
We had two individual students go out and fundraise on their own to the tune of $500.00 in the name of their aunt who recently passed. Their aunt was a huge supporter and lover of TeleMiracle.
Students went home and spoke to their parents about our video and lots of families sent in significant donations to their classes.
This fundraiser really brought our school together. Our Principal, Ryan Fowler, said he hasn’t seen our entire school work together like this for two years. It was wonderful to see staff and students engaged in a great cause, working towards a common goal. We have had so little school-wide events in the past two years due to COVID, our whole school really came together for TeleMiracle 46 in 2022!”
Ecole Debden Public School
“Ecole Debden Public School is in a small northern town situated one hour north-west of Prince Albert. The Student Leadership Committee (S.L.C.) organized two fundraisers at school to raise funds for TeleMiracle 46 (2022).
A PHOTOBOOTH was set up last week. Students were asked to bring a twoonie for a chance to get a fun photo taken in front of a variety of backgrounds set up by the S.L.C. The students had a variety of props to choose from. Fun was had by all. Just over $350.00 was raised at this event.
In addition, the S.L.C. has been collecting hat money every Friday. Students at the school could donate $1 on Fridays to wear a hat during the school day. Just over $400.00 was raised at this event.
Ecole Debden Public School’s S.L.C. is donating a total of $835.80 to TeleMiracle 46 in 2022.”
