WALK2NICARAGUA REMINDER (SAT,. APRIL 18, 9 AM - 1 PM)
As you know, we’re meeting for the Walk on Sat., April 18 at the University of Miami from 9 am - 1 pm. Here are a map and directions.https://www.google.com/maps/place/Chapel+of+the+Venerable+Bedefirstname.lastname@example.org,-80.274383,121m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x88d9b7ffb3ea8c9b:0xa8a95d5282ee2301?hl=en
We will begin promptly at 9 am with an introduction to the day. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so that you can register.
We’re excited about the day we’ve planned, which will include games and activities, food, music, lots of learning and community-making and, of course, our symbolic walk around the campus that we offer in solidarity to the children of Chacraseca, Nicaragua. Several students from the IAC SEED Club and the Kendall Yoga Service Club have been working hard since the beginning of the semester to make this experience possible.
Need some more inspiration? Check out this creative appeal to sponsors a student made for a past Walk.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gJX_HR7ReA
A NOTE ABOUT DONATIONS AND EXTRA CREDIT
As you know, if you feel moved to take the additional step of getting sponsorship for the Walk, you can earn extra credit for the semester. How much?
First, be aware that although $$$ is only one aspect of this project, it is an important one. A few dollars from each Walk participant would make a huge difference in the lives of these children. Drops in the bucket for us transform a whole community. If you’re asking for donations out of a genuine interest in these children’s lives, rest assured that the effort is well worth it.
At the same time, our work is about so much more than money. It is about delivering your message with passion, which is priceless--for everyone involved, including you.
So here’s the deal. It’s not about how much $$$. It’s about how many folks hear you.
Anyone who brings at least 1 sponsor and any donation gets about half the extra credit possible, 2 points on your final average. If you bring 10 sponsors or more--with a donation from each one--you get the max extra credit for the semester, 5 points. If you bring something in between, you get something in between.
When you register at the beginning of the day, bring your donations along with a list of your sponsors on this form. Let sponsors know we’re asking for the email to thank them for their support:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KBqAzH8hcug2_WXv-ftQUBoT-CdxBS9l-lEwZLBiP-c/edit
Look forward to seeing you!
