"7 Songs for 7 Wells!"

Today, H2O for Life received a fantastic video from Grandville High School in Michigan.  Their school choose H2O for Life partnerships with 7 partner school projects in Nicaragua.  They came up with a unique and entertaining fund raising idea.  They titled it, "7 songs for 7 wells."  They did an all school "lipdub" challenge for the Guinness Book of Records.  They attempted to do the world's longest lip synch.  I don't know if they won, but the video is great to watch.  Talk about students and staff having fun together for a great cause! As we watched the video, we were amazed at the costumes, the planning and the fun that was shared by the whole school. Love the gym scene at the end.  Congratulations Grandville.  We will play your video at our Walk for Water on April 16th at Target Field as people line up for the event.

A note from Grandville teacher, Kelly Stouten:
"I just wanted to let you know that we've raised over $5000 - closer to 6 - so far and have a couple more fundraisers in store for the remainder of the year, so we will have no problem raising our goal amount. I'm sending you a link to the lipdup we did as an entire school. We made and sold t-shirts that the H2O logo on the front and said 7 songs for 7 wells (even though some of the project are for wash stations/latrines) on the back. It was a different fundraising idea that maybe others haven't heard of."


Thanks for sharing Kelly and students from Grandville.  You are AWESOME!

WARNING:  the video is about 15 minutes long- don't start unless you have time to finish watching-because you'll be hooked!

What can you do to raise the passion and the fun level in your school?
