Our annual charity auction is always a huge success, raising thousands of dollars for our college students in Nepal. Funds raised at the auction provide scholarships for our college students studying in programs ranging from math and science to tourism and hospitality. Scholarships pay for tuition and all college related expenses including meals, books, uniforms, exam fees and more.
The Day of Silent and Night of Noise was inspired by leadership students at Keithley Middle School. Students planned a Day of Silence and hosted a Night of Noise to raise awareness of human trafficking and the effects of poverty while raising money to fund education in Nepal. We loved it so much we made it part of our local education initiative. Find out more about how you can organize a Day of Silence and host a Night of Noise in your community.
