MS. CECILIA AND I ARE RAISING MONEY AGAIN FOR 826LA, AN ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS CHILDREN IN THE ECHO PARK AREA WITH THEIR READING AND WRITING SKILLS (SEE BELOW).
LAST YEAR, WE RAISED OVER $500 IN THEIR PADDLE BOAT RACE.
THIS YEAR, WE WILL BE COMPETING IN A “SPELLING BEE FOR CHEATERS”.
THE WAY THIS WORKS IS THAT THE MORE MONEY WE RAISE, THE MORE ASSISTANCE WE GET DURING THE BEE ON AUGUST 14TH, 2010.
BUT DON’T WORRY, I WAS IN THE SPELLING BEE IN 4TH GRADE (AND MS. CECILIA WON THE SPELLING BEE IN 5TH GRADE), SO WE’VE GOT THIS.
ALL THE MONEY RAISED WILL GO TO THIS AWESOME ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS SO MANY CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE THE CHILDREN OF FIRST-GENERATION IMMIGRANTS.
WE HOPE YOU CAN SPONSOR ONE OF US. WE ONLY HAVE 7 DAYS LEFT TO SURPASS OUR GOAL.
CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW, SPONSOR EITHER MS. CECILIA OR I, AND DONATE SOME MONEY TO SQUASH OUR COMPETITION!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, AND BIG UP!!
*SHOW YOUR LOVE HERE*
