Our goal is to raise $240 by the end of the semester. This will cover us over the summer untl September. Thanks for bringing in your spare change and keep it up.

The charity we are using is Christan Foundation for Children and Aging which received four stars from Charity Navigator and an A+ from Charity Watch
