Remember Raider Relief? The group behind projects like H20, Hugs for Haiti, March Makeover and Souls for Soles? Well they’ve got another project for you!
Introducing the Bottle School Blitz! The Bottle School Blitz is a project to try and raise money to build a bottle school in Guatemala. These schools actually use recycled bottles as the insulation for the buildings, both promoting education and green living.
Raider Relief will be acting this Saturday, November 19, by blitzing the community around Alliance and posting up outside of local business to raise spare change for the project. This is the biggest push the organization will be making, however we still have other ways for you to help even if you can’t come to this Saturday’s effort.
One way you can participate is to be on the lookout next week for Raider Relief and our take-home bottles. What we want you to do with these is to take home a bottle and fill it with change over the Thanksgiving holiday. When break is over, just bring it back and return it to Raider Relief and we will add whatever you’ve raised to our total. Bottle Schools cost around $10,000 and we are hoping to raise, if not all, most of what is needed to get the project under way.
If you have any questions or would like to help out, contact the project leader Zak Suhar (maybe you read his blog here!) and he can direct you to the appropriate people. Happy holidays, and we look forward to seeing you at our event!
