Enemy Pie Anti-Bullying Tour - 25 schools!
Organized by: Derek Munson
Over the past year, the National Education Association has reported a massive surge in bullying and hate talk in our schools. The problem is now occuring with greater and greater frequency, and we need to take immediate action and address this issue before it becomes the norm. For the past 16 years I have worked as a children's author and speaker. I am doing this campaign to raise money for a strategic anti-bullying tour, visiting low income schools around the country who don't have the resources to host such an event. Studies have shown that the schools needing the most help addressing bullying are the schools that can afford it the least. And even when I waive any honorarium fees, these schools don't have the resources to pay for just the travel expenses to get me there.
If we can reach this fundraising goal, I will be able to do assemblies at 25 low income schools. These events will reach around 8000 kids, face to face, at their schools. It means 8000 high fives and fist bumps! The money raised will cover expenses including event planning, presentation supplies, and books for the schools (yes- I have to pay for my own books!) If we can raise funds beyond the goal, I'll be able to include more schools in the tour.
THIS WORKS OUT TO A COST OF $1 PER CHILD! Every dollar donated means we're reaching one more student:
- a $25 donation means you are sponsoring an entire classroom of elementary school students
-a $100 donation will reach an entire grade level at an elementary school
-a $300 donation will allow us to add one more school into the tour
