Trade game build­ing up

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata Chris­tian School’s Grow The Seed fundrais­ing cam­paign has now grown from $13.80 into $240 worth of goods.

Five peo­ple and busi­nesses have jumped on board with the ini­tia­tive in an at­tempt to trade up from $13.80 to $800,000 and there is still room for more peo­ple to join in the game.

Kid on the Rock Foun­da­tion and Mata­mata Chris­tian School Board of Trus­tees chair­man Spence Re­ichardt is pleased with the won­der­ful sup­port they have re­ceived from the com­mu­nity.

‘‘We have traded up through a con­tin­u­ous chain of trades and are look­ing for­ward to that con­tin­u­ing as we grow to­wards our goal of fund­ing a school hall,’’ he said.

‘‘Based on the premise that some­thing has a value to some­one, this is an ‘‘every­one wins’’ fundrais­ing game as you will re­ceive our item of trade in re­turn for yours.’’ Bishop Fam­ily – two hand crafted bean­ies and an iPod USB lead.
