In the beginning of October we had a fundraising week for Madeleine Children´s Fund. MCF is a fund that was established after a little girl named Madeleine passed away after a hard but brave fight with cancer. The funds purpose is to remember her but at the same time help todays kids who get diagnosed with cancer. Families who have a sick kid are often also faced with a financial burden, that is something MCF wanna help with.
The MCF consists of a group of parents from Mont´Kiara International School, all volunteers. Every year the school has a "Cancer Awareness Week". The community service you do as a IB student collaborate with the MCF. Some of the activities the school arrange during the cancer awareness week is: Dance-a-thon,skip-a-thon, run-a-thon, sell MCF products, Christmas lunch, cooking demonstrations and this year we ended the Friday with throwing the younger kids a Halloween Carnival. I helped babysitting and arranged a activity. I really like making sure the younger kids gets a good halloween experience. All the students who have physical education run/walk during PE that week, you give a donation for each lap you run
This is just one of the many fundraising weeks we have, this month (20-24/11) we will have a fundraising week for the club Habitat for Humanity.
