The Story

CONGRATULATIONS, Williamsburg Intermediate students and friends!! We not only met our goal, but more than TRIPLED it!!! We could not be happier about the outcome of this fundraising effort. At this point, 41 families will receive water cisterns. That means these families will have access to clean water day after day, for many years to come. 

Our fundraiser is officially over, though we've extended the date on this site to the last day of school. Funds are still coming in.

The blessing of learning is tied to the responsibility of taking action. Amazing job taking action, WI students! We could not be more proud of you. Thank you, as well,  to the many generous people who helped us in this work. Lives will be changed because of the sacrifices you've made. Many thanks! - Williamsburg Intermediate Humanities Mentors

Williamsburg Intermediate students will be supporting CHOICE Humanitarian to help Latin American families in need. We are learning more than the history and politics of Latin America in Humanities this year! We will be learning empathy and charity as we partner with our neighbors to the south.

We chose to work with CHOICE Humanitarian because they not only give a fish for a day, but also teach others to fish for themselves. CHOICE is doing incredible work to help end the cycle of poverty all over the world. Their goal is to help villagers build skills, capacities and leadership to create sustainable development in their villages.

Students will create their own, individual fundraising events as we work together to reach our goal. In addition to developing empathy, our students will become social entrepreneurs, equipped to participate as responsible citizens in the future. The $3,000 we earn will go 100% to CHOICE Humanitarian. Please help us meet our goal!

****CONGRATULATIONS, Williamsburg Intermediate students and friends!! We not only met our goal, but TRIPLED it!!! We could not be happier about the outcome of this fundraising effort. At this point, 36 families will receive water cisterns. That means these families will have access to clean water day after day, for many years to come. 

Our fundraiser is officially over, though we've extended the date on this site to the last day of school. Funds are still coming in. Tomorrow, we will total up the numbers and turn over the funds to CHOICE Humanitarian.

We hit another big milestone in our fundraiser this week! WI students not only surpassed but DOUBLED their fundraising goal in the last 24 hours!! We're all totally amazed! The hard work put in by students, and the many generous donations received are heartwarming and inspiring. It's amazing what dedicated people can do as they come together with a purpose!

We look forward to seeing where we are at close-out on Monday evening. Students will be giving a "check" online over to CHOICE Humanitarian and celebrating their hard work Tuesday morning. We are learning that, in a world of needs that can sometimes be overwhelming - we can do something real to make a difference.

We stopped Humanities classes midway yesterday to celebrate REACHING our $3,000 goal!!! We are 13 days ahead of schedule! This really goes to show how much hard work our WI students, and many generous donors, have been putting in. Thank you!!

The sacrifices being made will help families in Mexico for generations. They will have access to clean water for the rest of their lives. We met with CHOICE Humanitarian today and they are talking about it over there too. So exciting! 


BUT... we're not done yet! We have ONE more school week left on this project. Let's put in a final big push this week and see how far we can go - $4,000? Maybe $5,000? We'll see! 

It does my heart good to think that the families in Mexico, walking miles each day to get water, and at times going without, will have access to clean water for drinking, bathing, washing and cooking very soon. Let's keep up the good work! 

Sincerely, the Humanities Mentors
