|The Great Participant
Hi, my name is Emily Moughty and today I'd like to share with you the
story of how my school team and I raised the money for a fantastic
program called, "Coins for Cairns."
When I found out about this
program, my heart was filled with joy, one because I thought it was
great that my Aunt and other members of the Cairn Rescue were doing
this for Cairns, and two that I knew my team, actually my school
and I would most definitely be able to help... A
As soon as I heard about the news, I immediately knew that I needed
to do something to help, so I though of the idea of bringing a pretty
big jar in and filling it right to the top with pounds of money for
Cairn Terriers! Of course to get the jar my family and I were shoving
our mouths full of pretzels, and pretzels to empty this good sized jar
that would soon be filled with plenty of mullah!
I decided to bring the
jar into school and go around from 7:45 a.m.-2:45 p.m. day after day
collecting money from anyone who was offering to help! Some of my
closest friends, (Jessica Simeone, Tessa Samuelson, Jessica Bainer, and
Jessica Lengyl) helped with it by skipping free period and coming down
to the library to create posters and put them up all over the school!
Almost everyone in the building participated in this project, and to
our succes all together we raised the amazing amount of $66.11!!!
