Here is how the project went:

It was amazing! And more than I had hoped for! We raised about $1600 for the manatees and had 38 donations for the silent auction.

Through this project I/we learned:

That hard work really does pay off. And that I have the ability to make a difference on behalf of the things that I believe in.

What I/we might change:

We had more donations than we could use for the Silent Auction. If we did this again we would have fewer items. I would also have a set deadline to accept items.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

My favorite part of the project was giving my presentation to educate about manatees and having my friends get involved to help make it a lot of fun!

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:
