Our Fundraising Efforts
After winning 1st place during state championships, we realized that to move on to Internationals we need money for the trip. We need to collect over $8000 to pay for airfare, tournament registration, accommodations, robot parts, etc. Therefore we will be doing bake sales, babysitting, snow shoveling etc. We are also looking for corporate sponsors that can provide us with some amount of money in exchange for advertising.
We are also working with an organization called Charity: Water to fundraise together. This charity has funded 24,537 water projects for 7 million people around the world. We hope to help and give people fresh, clean, drinkable water.
Our team has been working hard to get everything done. Almost 9 hours a week is used just for FLL. We have until April to raise the money we need, work on our robot, and our project. We hope that you will be willing to help us in anyway you can.
