We ran a contest inviting both Kids in our Ready, Set, Goal! program and the FPK community to submit your Giving Goal on how you would change the world. The Kid whose goal was selected would get a pair of Maple Leaf tickets thanks to a generous donor, and the prize for community members and volunteers was to get to be the one to deliver the amazing news to a Kid that they were selected.
Masrura, an FPK Kid, was chosen for submitting this inspiring Giving Goal below. She was so excited to get to go to her first hockey game – almost as excited as her father Bulbul who went with her. It was really special because the Maple Leafs won!
“My Giving Goal is to arrange a fun play using the cooperation of remarkable student actors and actresses in our school. We will present our play to the nearest senior home and give the seniors a really awesome recreation time and a amazing play to watch.”
Taylor Ber, one of FPK’s dedicated Crew Captain volunteers submitted her Giving Goal below and she was selected to give Masrura the tickets.
“My goal is to inspire my peers to see the effect one person with passion can have. Inspiring the change maker mindset is the first step every individual must make on the journey to creating a more caring and compassionate world.”
Thank you to everyone who submitted a Giving Goal and shared the campaign! Here are a few of the other Giving Goals submitted – so inspiring!
