Help for Haiti 1/19/10




A week ago the country of Haiti suffered a massive earthquake killing hundreds of thousands of people and leaving even more homeless.
We are safe in our homes in Colorado Springs, thousands of miles away. You may be having an urge to help the Haitian people in their desperate time.
I came across this, Shelter Box USA.
I thought we could have a "Hats for Haiti' Day to raise money to send a Shelter Box to Haiti. The cost to fill a box is $1,000. We could easily raise this money during 1 hat day. What do you think? Can we rise to the challenge???

  1. I think that if everyone at our school was really dedicated and if they really wanted to help then of course we could do it! We have a lot of students at our school, and if everyone just gave a little, we could make a big difference! After seeing those videos in class today I really wanted to help,I mean, those poor people lost EVERYTHING! I know that if our school decides to help, I would defenetly give a little money myself. I think that we could defenetly help if people really wanted to. -Carys, Period 6

  2. i think that we can defiantly do it.... What might also help is to treat this like Care and share, just taking donations all together, maybe we should even have a whole week dedicated to it..... like a soar week but raising money for haiti

  3. I think that if we can organize fundraisers and maybe do pennies for peace we can raise money and give it to shelter box.

  4. I think we should do an anything goes day instead
    of hat because I think more people will pertisapate in anything goes day. More people more Shelter Box more help.

  9. I think if we try hard enough we could i think its a pretty good idea but alot of money!

  10. I think that this is a great idea and I also think we can do it!! Although, if not everyone gives a dollar and we do not make enough money I think we should put more time into it and have more fundrasiers for Haiti.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think we could raise enough money if everybody brings a dollar. It is a great idea! I think we could easily do it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think that is a great idea if everyone at school participated in donating a dollar for the people in Haiti. Then, I think we can will be able to raise enough money for the Shelter Box.

  13. I think that if the whole school was really dedicated to doing this then maybe we can accomplish this goal. If everyone brought in at least $1 then we should be fine and not just the 7th graders but the whole school!!!!!!!!!

  14. I definatly thick that we have the potential to raise $1000 but we will need a good turnout in order to do this. If the hat day turns outlike the one today, we won'teven get close. Maybe we should do a hat day one day and then something else another day!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think that it would be difficult to raise $1000 just from a hat day. A lot of people forget about this type of thing in the morning rush. Also, some people don't even like hat days or hats. But, I am totally for getting one of these boxes to help those in Haiti.

  21. maybe if everyone noes about the cause they will try to help and some poeple can even give extra money..i think that we can take the challange and win the callange

    ReplyDelete
  22. i think it would be better if we had all of the eagleview celebration funds like hot coco any thing goes day and stuff like that.then we raise more money then we ever could because way more people would be way more interested.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I say no because not that many people would wear a hat but, we should have a cocoa day because lots of us drink cocoa or coffee for breakfast as a pick-me-up.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think we could try to get a trust fund for schools.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think we could start a fundraiser.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think we should do a fundraiser and we would do anything goes because everyone will be involved and the charge would be a per person.

    ReplyDelete
  27. we can probably raise enough money for the box with one hat or anything goes day but if we don't we can have another one

    ReplyDelete
  28. i think we can but we just need a good outside of school like a car wash so we can really get some $

    ReplyDelete
  29. i think it's possible but not with a hat day, the whole school isnt going to pay $1 to wear a hat. We would need to do something else.

    ReplyDelete
  30. its a great idea to try to raise money to help the cause... $1 dollar isn't much so if we all participate and donate just $1 it would be a very easy thing to do!!!

  31. I think that if we did fundraisers and well all participate then i think it would be a great ways to raise money.

  32. I think everyone should donate $1 for everything goes day of hat day for a good cause to raise money for Haiti. Its a good way to get involved with situations like this one.

  33. I think that you should donate $2 for every fundraiser.

    i think that we should do a money war like we did the pennies war. that would mabey rase money to give to hati.We could also collect cans and give them out for money.the money we get from the consetions stand and save the money till we get like 1,000 dollars.we could make a goal to get a curtent amount of money for Hatti. i dont know.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think that Jordan is right if we do penny wars that would help a lot too. I think that instead of a hat day if we dont do the penny wars we should do an anything goes day because some people would rather beable to wear whatever they want instead of just a hat... i think we can do it though...

  36. i think we might be able to do it. p6 alex

    ReplyDelete
  37. We can definitely acoomplish this by doing something like the penny wars to help and raise money. We could also do something like spirit week, and every day, you would have to bring a dollar to help support the people in Haiti.

    ReplyDelete
  38. i think we might but we need to figer out a good date for it.p6mike

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think we could defiantly rise to the challenge, we just have to get the kids movated about it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think we could definately reach this goal. We could also do the penny wars like what adam said. We students would bring in a lot of money to see Mr. Howard in makeup again!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think we will be able to rise that money. Per. 6 John

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think that the way we raise money for care and share we could easily make our goal. we could start a school wide fundraiser for 2 or three days and make our goal really easily

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ithink its very nice to give the people that are in need of supliys and shelter also food and blankets. period 6,chris

    ReplyDelete
  44. i think we could raise enough money to get the box for the kids in haiti if we have some hat days.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I THINK IT CAN WORK WE JUST HAVE TO TRIE HARD AND GET ENOUPH MONEY TO HELP THE PEOPLE IN NEED WITH THE BOXES

    ReplyDelete
  46. i think we cannot do it because ii dont people would really do spirit week but they might donait

    ReplyDelete
  47. I think we can if every one were to bring in 1 dollar and for more dedicated people 5dollars to make up for people who don't participate we could get 1,500 dollars or 1.5 shelter boxes,

  48. I dfinatly think that we will be able to raise up enough money to buy atleast one to two boxes! I am not so sure we can raise the right amount, but i'm sure that we can!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think that if we were in this situation others would try and help us... so yes i think we could do it.... even if we dont make $1,000 dollars what ever we contribute will help

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think that we can do it because it's for a very good cause so people will want to give. Any amount of money is good because its still helping someone else.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I think that we can do it because we can help people and it is a good cause. Also, if we were the ones without homes and shelter. Or we were the ones that are sick because of hunger, then I would like to have people send be things that i could use. I think that each person in the will be able to spare at least one dollar. I would be happy to even donate $20.(but i dont think i would be able to.)

    ReplyDelete
  52. i think we could if everyone at least donated a dollar

  53. I think that eagleview is a caring school and we could so all donate one dollar.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think all the people in Haiti need all the help they can get. I think that Eagleview is a supporting and careing school.

  55. I think that we can have like hat day or coco day for a dollar and we can have them twice a month. then we can send the money to the red cross and have tem use it for the people in haiti

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think we can rise to the challenge. How we do that is we have two days next week to have a fundraiser. All the money from that will be donated to the Haiti cause to help send out shelter boxes.

  59. I don't think we can raise 1,000 dollars from just one fundraiser, but I think we would be able to raise the money from a few more fundraisers. Some people just forget about the hat day or the anything goes day in the morning because there is always something to do and it is easy to forget. We will need more than one fundraiser to raise the 1,000 dollars.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I agree with Ellie. We will probably have some people who forget hat day and everything goes day. We will probably need three or four fundraisers. Then we will be able to do it!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I think that we could, as long as people ACTUALLY did something, rather than just discuss it. So, let's go beg the principal and use our Bambi eyes to get him to throw some sort of fundraiser together.

  62. I think we could easily raise enough money for it if everyone as least brought in a dollar or two. I think this fundraiser is a great idea and should be pretty easy considering many people are probably gonna easily help out.

  63. it will definitly work because i think we all have potential and if we all work together this project will work and haiti will be right back on their feet because we are america and we help each other out

  64. YES! We can do this! Many of the 2008-2009 6 Burgundy student are on 7 Burgundy now. We collected LOTS of cans for care and share last year, so this will not be that difficult to do! Lots of people enjoy wearing hats to school, so a "Hats for Haiti" would be great! I know just which one I'll wear...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Yes. i think that we do have the potential to do this. if everybody commits to participating, i think we can.

    ReplyDelete
  66. i think we can, i think this because a lot of middle schoolers like to wear hats. we can do this

  67. i think if we have an anything goes day for 1.50 for the whole school, we could raise an unbelievable amount of money for shelter box(ens)for the people of haiti

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think that if everyone gave a little bit of money, we could easily fill a shelterbox. A penny war would also help.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think we can succeed in this because if everyone knows why we are having a hat day for something important they will pay to wear a hat. And if we can't do that maybe we could do something for a whole a week ~Christina Period 1

  70. I think we should get most of the money but , I think we will need at least more than one hat day. Michael P2

  71. i think we could rise to the challenge like maybe we could have hat day and anything goes day then could get more money! ~Molly P2

    ReplyDelete
  72. I think, like everyone else said, it is possible to raise enough $$$ for Haiti, we just need more than one fundraiser and more than one day. People easily forget, so we should have more than one fundraiser: such as a dance or raffle. We should also get other teams around the school to help: I heard that 6 Burgundy is also doing a fundraiser (bake sale) and will combine their earnings with ours. With other teams around the school, we should be able to have more than enough to buy a Shelter Box for the victims of Haiti

  73. YA, I think we could raise the money but we could as well do even more.

    I posted a comment 2 days ago but it didn't post.

  74. I think that we can do it eventually, but not just i none hat day. Some people might forget, so I think we should have an anything goes day, so people have the choice of anything. Maybe the anything goes day could be the next Friday!
