Help Send Cara to India (While Helping the Planet)

caramarsile:

Ok check it out check it out. Cara has officially made the decision that is FEBRUARY she will be heading off to INDIA! that’s right, I said it. INDIA! the cost of my trip is looking like about $4,500 and so I have to jump on the fundraising train ASAP. My mom, being the miracle fundraiser guru, found a company online where you can recycle food wrappers for $$.

Wrappers like chip bags, candy wrappers, capri sun juice pouchs and much more. for every wrapper I collect, the recycling company will give me $.02, which doesn’t sound like a lot, and it isn’t but…think of schools. Kids throw away a MASSIVE amount of all sorts of those recyclable goods everyday. So today at Crossroads, i started telling the kids at the lunch tables to give me their food wrappers and juice pouches to help send me to India. The kids were a little confused at first, naturally, but after explaining what I was doing and where I was going, they were so excited to help. I look at it this way, there is really no downside to this fundraising opportunity because I am able to reduce trash in the landfills (amazing), raise money I wouldn’t have otherwise received (great), explain to kids about the world and the need for workers (my passion), and I don’t even have to pay for shipping out the trash! So legit right!?
