January 27, 2010 - In an effort to raise money for our friends in Haiti, many schools from the Sudbury Catholic District School Board have been doing some fundraising. On Wednesday, January 27th, Mrs. Rychlo, a teacher from Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School coordinated a “Chewing for Charity” fundraiser at which students had the opportunity to purchase a bubblegum from an old fashioned bubble gum machine. A minimum of 25 cents per bubble gum was the cost requested. Children were encouraged to contribute any loose change towards the fundraising effort as every little act of kindness goes a long way to ensure that our brothers and sisters in Haiti can get through the devastation of the earthquake. The students managed to raise $400 to donate and enjoyed chewing the gum in the process!
