At the beginning of the school year we got our class outline. On it, our expectations and our teacher’s goal for this semester was for us to do something to change something in the world, whether it was big or small. A couple of us got together and figured out a great cause we wanted to help. I loved the idea of the IWK, it was so important in our community and they saved two of our group member’s lives. Neither of us would have been here if it weren’t for their help! We had a goal of $500 to raise for them. We wanted to make sure that the IWK would always be there to help children like us. In our school, in the community of Liverpool, on October 24th, we had a bake sale. Altogether we raised $125 for that day and scheduled a bottle drive for the 2nd and 3rd of November. In the freezing cold we managed to raise $380 which was just enough to reach our goal. We were so glad to be able to give them $505 towards the kids that needed our help. We drove into the IWK one day and did the cheque presentation. The girl that assisted us from the start was very helpful, and I am glad that we chose this charity.
We had a great journey with the IWK and loved every step of the way.
