casual for the cure

Tying into my early post about cancer, my kids school does a really neat thing each month to support the American Cancer Society. Once a month, the kids aren’t required to wear their uniforms – they’re allowed to go casual for the day. They do need to bring in a dollar to participate in the event, and all of the money raised is donated. My kids pay the $1 out of their own money. It’s a great way to show kids how easy it is to raise money for a good cause, and I like my kids to pay their own way so they see the importance of donating money to charity.

It’s something that almost any school or workplace could adopt to make raising money for charity fun.

    I also think it’s great when the school’s “Ditch the Duds Day” benefits a charity. Think of all the good that could be done if more places would participate in something like this!
