JCS Inaugural Butterfly Drop
Monday, August 3rd, Julian Charter School made the first move towards “teaching the change we want to see in the world.” A butterfly was dropped at 11:15 a.m. and by 11:30, Ms. Betsy Balcao found the butterfly on the campus of the JCS PLC program. Betsy decided to donate the $250 to Children of the Nations, a charity where she supports a little girl and had the opportunity to travel to Malawi, Africa this summer to meet this little girl who hopes to grow up and become a teacher some day. Ms. Balcao spent a few days meeting and bonding with the children of the Chirombo village.
Betsy shared that the $250 donation to this charity would almost sponsor a child, for all of his/her needs, for a year.
This touched Ms. Tiffiny’s heart. Tiffiny reached out to Betsy to see how much more it would take to sponsor a child for a whole year. Betsy replied $134. Tiffiny stood up on day two of JCS’s back-to-school days and shared her desire to try and collect the additional $134 to fully fund a child. ($384 for a FULL YEAR!)
Thanks to the generosity of the JCS staff, and the “Butterfly Effect”, JCS raised enough to fully fund two students through Children of the Nations for a year! Then, as an added bonus, when we went online to make the donation, Children of the Nations would double our donation, thus helping FOUR children!
Don’t let the ripple effect stop here; continue flapping your wings and making a difference in the world.
YOUR LIFE MATTERS! Be the change you want to see….
