“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."

We are pleased to partner with the middle schoolers of Calvary Baptist Day School, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This energetic bunch of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders has commited to raising funds for the drilling of the water well at the school and orphanage. Their "CHANGE FOR ORPHANS" project kicks off on Tuesday February 10th with an assembly and runs through the end of February. Students are encouraged to donate the change they would spend on soda, sports drinks, and Starbucks treats to the project. Students could also consider donating a portion of their allowance, doing chores to raise extra money, asking friends and family for donations of spare change --- all in the hopes of raising $2,500. The Calvary home room that donates the most money will earn an extra incentive --- the chance to soak their Principal, Brenda Lidbom, with water balloons at the middle school social on February 27th. Go Cougars!
