We are excited for the 2017 Compassion Challenge which will kick off in March. RISE UP! will give each child $1 and will ask them to multiply the $1 by using their God given talents throughout the month. Just a few of the creative ideas students have implemented in the past include: teaching a cooking class, selling handmade crafts, washing cars, or putting on a bakesale. The possibilities are limitless. Each school will pick one of the local charities (listed below) to donate the money raised during the Challenge. Last year, RISE UP! kids raised over $12,000 and made some lasting memories!
