Although not on par with buying a cow or another animal to help those in Third World countries, donating funds so Lu Sutton Elementary students can eat lunch at tables like kids at all the other Novato public schools do is similar.
If you were to give, you would be making more than just a one-time difference. You’d be making a difference every day.
The kids at Lu Sutton don’t have lunch tables. They sit on benches and hold their lunches on their laps. You know how easy it is when you’re 5 or 6 or 7 years old to upend your lunch off your lap? Do you think at any age you’d do particularly well with balancing your lunch on your lap, eating and trying to avoid the little “surprises” that circling crows from above drop onto you? That sounds more like a P.E. activity obstacle course than a lunch, right?
You can donate a little or you can donate a lot. Donate through Monday, Oct. 29, by buying a raffle ticket (or two or 10), and enter to win a Kindle Fire donated by NAPA Auto Parts. Underwrite the $1,000 cost of one of the tables, and you’ll not only get the satisfaction of knowing you’re making a difference every single school day, but you’ll also get an engraved plaque with your name or business name on the table.
You can email Nicole Choi for more information.
