January 2017 – Great turn out at Paint Nite 4 SchoolBOX
Paint Nite for SchoolBOX was a great way to kick off the 2017 fundraising year. About 30 friends of SchoolBOX in the Ottawa area gathered together at Mongolian Village in Nepean to learn how to paint a beautiful ‘winter path’ scene and empower kids to get an education!
Special thanks to the ‘Making Education Possible’ team of students, who organized the event. Bryan Simpson, Claire Lubun, Hannah Faulkner, Chiara Webb, Tyler Dow, Jenna McKeown, and Parker Armstrong have devoted their time and resources towards fundraising money in order to build a classroom in Nicaragua. With each event, they are closer to realizing their goal!
