8.0 Monte Carlo

  • Lots of volunteers have stepped up to help.

  • Next Organizing Committee meeting: Monday, February 11th

9.0 Walkathon

  • Not much done to date. Kids have asked for bubble gum tape again. J

  • Need new ideas and ways to motivate kids:

    • Provide them with some supporting material when asking for donations

    • Need to separate corporate from personal donations (disheartening for kids when one child shows up with thousands and wins grand prize)

    • Can we have an online portal for collecting donations, similar to a crowdfunding site but without the cut? Each child could create their own page, with personal goal, pie chart, etc. School could add to the site things like photographs, walkathon events, etc.

NEXT MEETING DATE: MONDAY, MARCH 4th IN THE STAFF ROOM
