After being inspired about the action that others have taken to change the world, Cadence decided she wanted to help her home nation Fiji after the devastating cyclone Winston left over 120,000 without shelter. Please join us on Wednesday, March 23rd during 4th and 5th grade morning recess by joining in the walkathon she organized by wearing blue and donating 20 RMB. The proceeds will be donated to the Australian Red Cross. For more information about the devastation caused please visit the Australian Red Cross site.
