A note from the Project: Tomorrow executive team:
We are a group of students from Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School, with an aim to provide students with opportunities to voice their opinions and contribute to larger issues beyond school grounds. With the goal to collaborate and support the Hope Starts Here Campaign, we hope to contribute our fundraising proceeds to replace aging equipment at the BC Women's Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and aid the essential care for BC's most critically ill infants and newborns.
This past year, upon the establishment of the Project: Tomorrow club, we have brought together over 60 students from grades eight to eleven with an aim to augment the lives of youth and their families in the lower mainland. During the 2015-2016 school year, our executive team, which includes Jerry Liu, Alicia Wong, Oscar Xu, Brian Wong, and Karen Ip, has lead and organized a variety of fundraising events, including school wide bake sales, coin drives and lunchtime sales, resulting in over 500 dollars in proceeds, all which will be donated to the Hope Starts Here Campaign.
We hope to provide our peers with volunteer opportunities within our school, in addition to those available at BC Women’s Hospital and connect students with community initiatives to shape our future.
Project: Tomorrow is a student-run club whose mission is to support local organizations who benefit the lives of infants, children, and youth by raising funds, awareness and partaking in community events to improve the quality of life for individuals and families. Project: Tomorrow was created not only with the understanding of the importance of giving back to the local community but also that tomorrow can be shaped by our efforts and actions today.
