Scrapbook By Roger Chang At the Start As being secretary, I was assigned to take notes. As we held our first meeting in class, I had to jot down ideas of what fundraisers we might need. When we had the idea of a bake sale, I made a list of what me might be able to make and what price we should sell for. Another Choice As we moved onto the idea of a car raffle, my job was to help search for contact numbers for automobile companies. We realized that we were spending too much time for a car and so Miss Baillie presented the idea of holding a restaurant fundraiser and helping support other groups by getting prizes. Every person in our team including me had to get a list of places where we could get donations and a popular restaurant for our fundraiser. For the donation, I donated a $8 Target gift card for the St. Patrick’s Gold Hunt. Final Idea We took the idea of a ball & chain fundraiser after Miss Baillie presented the idea to us. I was put in charge of making a list of teachers and as the others made the letter, we each went out to deliver the letters and asked them if they would like to participate. I had also edited the template that Miss Baillie gave us. Advertising When we were making the posters, I helped paint 2 out of the 3 posters while also handing out letters and spreading the word. On March 23rd our group and some volunteers from 4th and 5th period gathered into a mob and we went around campus asking people if they were willing to buy charges. The Trial We all helped set up the trial and we helped gather a small crowd. While some people in our group were reading charges for the teachers that came out during the 1st half of lunch, the others, including me, went to get the teachers for the 2nd half. We all helped clean up afterwards. Sending out the Awards On March 25th, our group had made Wildcat Awards for every teacher who helped with the help of Miss Baillie. We started sending the Wildcat Awards as soon as possible. Reflection When the idea of the ball and chain was first proposed, I didn't have full confidence that the idea would work. I was still frustrated over the fact that we had many different ideas before our final one and that each one of those ideas didn't seem worthwhile. Our group thought about the materials needed and how long it would take to obtain those materials. My mind was set on how we were going to complete the project. When we learned that our fundraiser was the final one, I was feeling pretty nervous. We started right away on making the posters and making the boxes. I felt pretty good when we started because it was nice to know that we were getting somewhere. Soon, the day came and when I saw the list of teachers and the collection box filled with money, I was filled with joy. I'm relieved that we were able to have a successful fundraiser.
