Esperanza High School (EHS) recently partnered with the non-profit WE organization to raise $2,500 to build wells in communities of greatest need by hosting a fundraiser walk. Through a multi-prong fundraising approach, the Aztecs raised $2,840 , surpassing their goal and giving 113 people access to clean water for life!
Included in the fundraising was selling shaved ice and popcorn at lunch, a GoFund Me account, jars in classrooms for donations, a snack shack, registration, and a “Flash Flood.” The Flash Flood was done during Esperanza’s Prom Rally and it was a minute of rapid donation. The grade level that earned the most money in the minute received a prize. In that one minute, the school raised $700.
The walk itself was a great success with 181 people registered and a course that simulated the walk that people in other countries must make every day to get water. It was a phenomenal experience seeing our vision and everyone’s talents coming together to meet one goal.
