Cyclone Winston Disaster

After the horrible disaster at Fiji our school had a fundraiser to help. In our school we earned around about $1200 as a school. The problem was we had lots of donations of supplies that they didn’t have but we didn’t have enough money, so we wrote persuasive letters to big or small companies asking for donations of money.
