Just a quick update regarding our Clean Currents campaign and fundraiser. . . .
In the end, our students successfully inspired 15 people to sign up for renewable, wind energy in their home. During this campaign we received $30 for every new signee. So these 15 people raised our school $450 for future sustainability and gardening projects! We were only 5 people away from getting that $500 bonus, but hopefully we can get it next time, as Clean Currents has agreed to do another campaign with us next year.
In the meantime, BGE rates are on the increase! And you still have time to lock in a lower rate while getting your home off of coal-based energy. Because of our efforts, Clean Currents has offered us an ongoing partnership! From here on out anyone that mentions WSB when they sign up will raise our school $15! So if you haven’t done it yet, you still can. A special THANK YOU goes out to the 15 people for making the switch! Our school and the world are better for it!
Update: 6/15/13 – 3 more households signed up for Clean Currents and mentioned our school! Thank you for your support!
Greetings! I just wanted to update you on our KIVA micro-lending program. So here it goes….
As of right now we have 11 members in our Waldorf International Community lending team — some are WSB parents and some are people from the greater Waldorf Community. In total, we have 14 loans attributed to the team which totals out to $425! This all started only 6 weeks ago with the Waldorf School of Baltimore’s initial loan of $25! Our team has lent money to people all over the world: Uganda, Kenya, Peru, Vietnam, Senegal, Samoa, Iraq, and the Philippines. And some of us have already started getting repayments on our loans.
If you’re interested in joining, please read about our work with KIVA in THIS former blog post. For everyone who joins our team and lends someone $25, WSB gets another $25 bonus to lend out — effectively doubling your loan! Click the image above to start lending. Remember, your loan of $25 goes a long way in some of these underprivileged countries and really helps out a lot of people. Thank you for your support! And have a wonderful weekend.
