Waterville school needs votes – voting ends at noon today
Our Waldorf school in the Eastern Townships of Quebec needs your help to win a competition organized by AVIVA to obtain funding of up to $150 000.
Our school, École des Enfants-de-la-Terre, does not currently have an outdoor shelter. This year, we hope to raise $50 000 through our usual fundraising events, but this is not enough to build the large exterior shelter that we badly need for physical education classes since our classes are held outdoors whatever the weather! As well, the shelter will be a place for Friday markets, student plays, and children waiting for their ride home.
We have already reached the semi-finals! We are one of 37 remaining projects (out of 500), but only ten projects will enter the finals (and receive a minimum of $5000 each). This is why we are reaching out to the larger community. This is why we are reaching out to you.
If you are willing to help, please vote for our project today – the voting ends at noon! To register on AVIVA’s web site, you only need to provide an email address (or Facebook account).

Our school is not a private school; our partnership with the school board has made our Waldorf School extremely accessible. However, the parents support a foundation that pays for all the buildings and their maintenance. In fact, we had already saved the money for the shelter, but had to spend it this year on urgent repairs to the building that houses our youngest students.
Our Board of Directors has been planning the shelter for several years and now we need your help to make our new shelter a reality.
