“Coins for Costa”

934940_10103508288777981_1871543459_nThe girls are hard at work raising “Coins for Costa”. Here they are at the Atlantic Beach Mid-Week Market selling homemade muffins, brownies and rice crispy treats. This week we met a few Costa Rica vacationers who were thrilled to learn about the trip, and help out with some Coins. One contributor is even planning to live there for the whole summer!

These girls are dedicated to raising enough money to take a trip to Uvita and volunteer with local schoolchildren at the Kids’ FUN youth center, Forjando Alas. Last week they raised $34 and this week another $39 plus Coins! Each student must raise about $1,000, and every little bit helps.

Our students are getting excellent practice speaking to people professionally about a cause they believe in. This is a wonderful growing experience for each of them. To help them out, please click here to donate. At the PayPal check out, make a note that says “Coins for Costa”.
