In "Love Surrounds Us," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity will help participants understand the real need of saving our rainforests and give them an opportunity to educate others. Gather participants together to decide what project they would like to fund. Once you have decided, help participants make posters to advertise your fundraising and decorate a can or box for people can fill with financial donations. Consider using your cardboard tree for advertising. Decorate posters with rainforest animals and an explanation of the actual project you have chosen. Hang posters throughout the church and establish a deadline for collecting funds. Advertise in congregational communications including announcements in worship; consider taking a special collection for your project during a service. At the end of your fundraiser, publicize how much money was raised. Publicize a "Thank you" to donors. Send the donation to the appropriate location, as indicated on the website.
Pair children with limited abilities with others to make posters and a collection container. Be sure all participants have an opportunity to help decide the particular rainforest project they would like to fund.
