Schools raised more than $133,000 for Caritas in 2010, almost half of it for Lent. Thank you to teachers, students and parents who put the effort in.
Schools received various fundraising materials with our Lent resources, including our Lifestyle Calendar, Koha Box, and Fundraising Ideas booklet.
Many took part in Live Simply Day on 26 March, where students come together for a Poverty Banquet or Live Simply meal. In return for a donation reflecting what they’d pay for a lunch order or full meal, students receive a small serving of food.
Schools took part in a wide range of other activities to support the work of Caritas. It has helped us to sustain more than 40 community development projects in 22 countries, and respond to emergencies around the world. Thank you for all your efforts!
