The Problem

Help injured and displaced animals from the Australian wildfires

Our Plan

Hold a book drive to raise funds for Australian wildlife at our elementary school. We had students donate books. The following week, we set up tables near the lunch shelter and sold the books. Our Banyan Roots and Shoots Club worked together to organize the event and raise funds for the animals of Australia. We raised over $500 and donated it to the Australia Zoo. We learned everyone can make a difference and help!
