At Carbonear Collegiate, PA-MOJA has successfully raised funds and made a cultural connection with our sister school, Thome. We are thrilled to say that our group has created our biggest fundraiser, the Techonology Famine. We plan to have one every year since it is such a big hit.
Although quite difficult, we all have fun interacting with one another as we take on the challenge to give up our technology for 30 hours. After having our second one, we are thrilled to be planning the third! During this event we play sports, do lots of team building activities and skype with our sister school. We challenge each participant to spread the word about PA-MOJA while collecting pledges for our Tech Famine.
Another fundraiser that is quite successful is our bake sales. We get together to bake all kinds of goods to sell at our school; this helps to spread the word about our group and it allows the members of PA-MOJA to work together to raise money.
We also had a dance workshop that was a success. We wanted to get the community involved in a fun event that would bring awareness about PA-MOJA and what we stand for.
We are planning to have other fundraisers in the Spring such as more bake sales and even a car wash. Our main goal is to get the community involved in interesting fundraisers and tell the community about PA-MOJA .
