Commissioner’s Dime’s for CWFF Challenge
Belonging to a the worldwide organization known as World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) makes Edmonton Area Girls part of something much larger. Each year we raise and donate money to the Canadian World Friendship Fund (CWFF). This fund is used to help with projects around the world and supports members traveling internationally. This year we are trying to raise more money and have a little fun doing it.
What to do:
Start collecting dimes. Challenge your members in different ways to collect them. Maybe 1 dime for every year old they are, or 1 for every television or cell phone in their house, be creative! Then let the creativity happen. Stack them, count them, and make a picture with them. Show off how many your group collected!
Then what happens:
Take some photos! Show us what you have collect. Tell us how much you have collected and bring the donation to Edmonton Area to be forwarded on to the CWFF. Please fill out the bottom portion of the attached form and submit it Ilena (with your photos) at firstname.lastname@example.org by FEBRUARY 21, 2018 to be entered into the draw. There will be prizes awarded for total money collected per member as well as most creative displays. Winners will be announced at Light the Bridge on February 22, 2018.
