Hi! I’m attaching a cool idea the Interact students came up with for their fundraiser (see http://worldmeetphoenix.wordpress.com/2011/04/15/rotary-shelterbox-interact/).
They have an idea that raising funds can take on an ‘evacuation theme’! SUPER creative – in that you can have you donation ‘sponsor’ one of the students to ‘evacuate the tent-a-thon tent city’!
Check it out:
Tsunami Evacuation Notice
You have been summoned to be evacuated by a caring person (who paid $25 to evacuate you):
Caring Person’s Name:_________________________________________Phone:________________

You must appear at “TentCity” on theMainPlazaat The Promenade Shops at Centerra during the hours of 5 p.m. on 4/29/11 through 5 p.m. on 4/30/11. Yes, it is an ALL NIGHT TENT-A-THON!!! You will be joining the Big Thompson Interact youth as they experience what a “tent city” would be like if a natural disaster were to occur here. You do have the option to “Opt Out” by making a $25 (or more) donation.
All proceeds from this Tent-a-Thon will be used to purchase Shelter Boxes which house 10 people for 90 days in the case of natural disasters, such as the recent Japanese earthquake/tsunami. Feel free to send a check (made out to Shelter Box USA and mailed to 1850 E. Hwy 60,Loveland,CO 80537) or you can go to the following Shelter Box,USAweb page to donate:
https://bos.etapestry.com/fundraiser/ShelterBoxUSAInc/reps/search.do A page will appear: “Find a Team or Participant”, in the box, enter “Loveland” and click Search. It will bring up “Big Thompson Interact Loveland Colorado Team”. Click that choice and you will be at the right spot to donate toward our goal of 5 Shelter Boxes!!
If you have questions or would like someone to come to you to collect or you would like to issue a Tsunami Summons Notice for someone else you care about, feel free to call Paige Primmer at 970-690-7863 or Teresa Beemer at 970-203-4267.
If you make a donation of $25 or more, we will be happy to email you the tracking number of the Shelter Box we are able to sponsor.
