Give-A-Way and Giving Back

Mrs. Saylor is giving away a $25 gift card to in honor of reaching 100 followers. She has a fantastic blog, so go check it out right after you read the next part of my post! :)

A few weeks ago I asked my principal about doing a fundraiser for Japan.   We are calling it "Jingle for Japan."  Students and teachers bring spare change to donate to the cause.  Each teacher was given one of these cups to keep in their classroom. 

When their cup is filled, there is a large red bucket (sorry forgot to take a picture) that is kept in the office where they can dump their change and start over.

What we collect will go to the American Red Cross Japan Relief Efforts.  I encourage everyone to take this idea and use it!

Now don't forget to go to Mrs. Saylor's Log and enter her contest!


  1. I absolutely love this. I am going to share this with my principal. I am not sure if we are allowed to do this as a whole school because we are a Title 1 school so fundraisers have to be built in from the beginning but maybe first grade can since one of 1st grade teachers has a sibling who lives in japan. thanks for sharing.

  2. What a great and easy way to collect money (not to mention a catchy title!). I'll be sure to mention this to our principal as well!

  3. Our school is doing the same thing at our school. Each class has been challenged to fill 2 liter soda bottles and all the money will be sent to the Red Cross relief, as well. Good Luck with your collecting!
