GREAT news:

‘Endangermalia—Before It’s Too Late’, our book which was researched, written and illustrated by grade 8 art students at SSIS, in collaboration with Commack Middle School, NY raised a whopping $600.00! These profits were gained from donations during our art party last week and from book sales.

Plus the profits from our online store which brings the grand total to $850.03 USD.

The students worked very hard creating, promoting and selling this book. They researched and chose the charity they wanted to support based on findings from the CHARITY NAVIGATOR. This project was entirely student run.

They even designed art cards for our art party and 50% of the sales went towards WWF. The other 50% has been given to HEARTBEAT VIETNAM.
