121 million children around the world are denied the opportunity to attend school, and 218 million children worldwide work as child labourers.
This Thursday, the Me to We committee will be participating in the Vow of Silence, agreeing to stay silent and refrain from any type of communication for period’s 1&2 to help raise awareness of this social justice issue.
This week, during all three lunches, you will have the opportunity to sponsor a member of the Me to We committee with any change you are able to give. All of the money will be going to Free the Children to help raise funds to purchase classroom supplies, textbooks, and a lunch program in schools overseas.
Anything raised will make a change, so BE THE CHANGE!
