Miri Piri Academy is a very special international school in Amritsar, India that is shaping the leaders of tomorrow. My son is in his second year there in 4th grade and is shining like the sun! The experience these kids get there is priceless, and every child who wants to be a part of this experience and the school should be able to go. This is where your help is needed. MPA is having a raffle fundraiser to raise money for kids that want to participate in the school. Lots of great prizes so please donate generously and give to this good cause and have a great chance at also getting some cool prizes in return.
"More than 65% of the students of Miri Piri Academy depend on financial aid, and we expect that we will award more than $420,000 to those students over the coming months. Our Financial Aid Fund has received a grant for $275,000 as a starting point, and we now need to raise just $145,000 from generous donors like you.
Our goal for this raffle is to spread the word and kick off the effort with a fun, win-win activity to generate at least $20,000 through the sale of 1000 raffle tickets. Tickets are just $20 apiece, and besides helping the children, your ticket buys you the chance to win some of the great prizes that were donated by our friends and family. Prizes include:
After just two weeks we have already raised $1780 dollars through the sale of 89 raffle tickets to begin our Financial Aid fundraising efforts for the 2011-12 school year. There are just 911 tickets left to buy to reach our goal. To those of you who already participated, thank you! We hope that if you have not, you will help us reach our goal. Every ticket counts!
