Spreading the Good Word about North Shore Fundraisers

Posted by Ann, Ziptivity’s North Shore Community Ambassador

Fundraisers… if you’re lucky enough to have very little ones at home, then you may not know much about them.  For those of us with school-aged kiddo’s, it’s just about ALL we know!  From PTO-sponsored events to sports to Girl Scout cookies and that (awful) wrapping paper…  you just can’t say “no” to opening your wallet.

I’ve taken on the Plum Cove Elementary school online auction for the past 3 years.  It’s a very cool setup, run via biddingforgood.com, an online charitable auction site.  Our auction this year will raise needed funds for Arts and Enrichment.  As schools throughout MA continue to face severe budget cuts, fine arts programs are being cut one-by-one. These programs are vulnerable to budget cuts partly because children are not tested in music or art under the No Child Left Behind law. Sadly, “Art on a Cart” is the new normal in way too many MA schools…  

Check out our auction here: Plum Cove Elementary, “Roots to Grow” Online Auction 3/14-3/28
