Hi my name is Brittany

I attended week 2 of ciy in Michigan. My friends and I saw the video of Zambia's song and were really touched. So the next day My friends got water bottles put duct tape around the outside and started asking people for all their loose change. 24 hours later we counted it it was already over 1 hundred dollars. We kept doing this the rest of the week and on our way back to Florida. We got home and were not done counting yet but its already over 2 hundred and 20 dollars. Were so amazed about all this Smile


different story...The challenge cards we got at the end of the week. I opened mine and it said plan a fundraiser and raise $5,000 to build a well in Africa. So my friends are helping me and all this money were raising were calling it change for change and its all going towards my 5,000...But were gonna make our goal 10,000 Surprised




So i will keep you guys up to date on how much money we have raised Smile

thanks
brittany

Awesome! I love bike rides Very Happy

Where at in Illinois is your group? ActiveWater's office is about a 2.5 hour drive to Chicago. Didn't know if perhaps some of us might be able to join in the fun.

God bless,
Amie

I went to CIY and Know Sweat as a leader this summer and after seeing Zambia's Song our students got very passionate about the water crisis. One of our students got a challenge card that said raise money for active water by creating a 5K run in your town. Before she got that card she was challenged by the Lord to raise 8,000 dollars for the people in Zambia. She is very passionate and is leading a group at our church to be a part of the challenge. They have a meeting on Sunday after church and are planning ways to reach the church and the community so that they will become aware of the water crisis as well. I am so proud of all the students that have decided to take action and Move. I have already seen how God is using students and am excited to see what the small town in Pinckney Michigan can do to make a difference in Zambia.

On a different note I opened a challenge card to help encourage our students to take their challenges seriously. My challenge is to run a marathon and raise awareness for active water. I am excited to see what God has in store, but I am a bit nervous about running a marathon. I am not a runner and so this is going to be a challenge for me. But I can't wait to tell everyone the reason why I am doing it. I can't wait to share with them about the water crisis, and I can't wait to see how they become passionate about helping active water.
In Him,
Stacey Gerhart

im glad u like my idea and im from Danville Illinois so glad to help and MOVE and yes i would like anyone to come and join in don't when we r going to do it yet and i don't think that is the only thing we r going to do i think we might take buckets and make them look like wells and have it where they could put donations in and if that gets all done i hope we raise more than $5,000 to go to making a well in Africa


when i get more planned out i will tell all and if u guys can come down for the ride it would b nice to meet u all

My name's Jesse Gochenour from Kansas. I went to CIY Tennessee 6 this summer and when I saw Zambia's Song it was like a slap in the face. That week I had made a tie out of duct tape and a lot of ppl thought that it was cool and some even said that i could sell the ties for money. The next day we saw Zambia's song song and it hit me that I could make duct tape ties and wallets and other stuff and sell them and give the money to Active Water. I talked to my Youth Pastor this week and we're gonna talk a little more about it later on but I'm hoping to get a group of ppl from my church involved in it. I'm planning on talking to our schools FCA to see if i can start something there too. Past that I don't really know what else we might do, but I really want to help. And I was thinking that maybe in a couple of years I could join a group going over to Zambia to help with the water crisis.

Hey Jesse!

Duct tape ties and wallets could be the new rage in fashion Very Happy I'd wear one! I'd just have to make sure it didn't go into the dryer What a Face

If you want to go on a trip to Zambia to see what ActiveWater is doing, check back to www.ciy.com/engage

They'll be doing trips this summer and most likely next too!

God bless,
Amie

Hi! I'm from a little town in Illinois. I attended the CIY convention in Tennessee.
I got the card to raise $5,000 for a well also.
I'm about to $2,000 dollars so far.. but keep on makin' more!
I sit outside of IGA, Walmart, and other places selling items.
We buy things in bulk and sell them. Surprisingly, alot of people want what we have to sell.
It makes me feel so good.
I hope when I am in college I can do mission work.

That is sooooooo awesome! Very Happy I've often wondered if Walmart would give us a spot at their entry. Great that you had the gumption to make it happen Cool

God bless,
