Couldn't We All Do With A Little More Cheer?

My Students

Dear Donor,

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of school spirit?

That's right...cheer-leading! Our talented team of students work hard to boost our morale and engage our community. Cheerleaders are at the very heart of our school community.

With you help, we can boost that excitement! Over the last four years, our team has taken home three competition wins. While we have the spirit and the outfits to match, there is one thing we don't have that all of the other teams do. Pom poms.

Our cheer team is in need of 30 sets of pom poms to once again stand out in the crowd. This little extra dose of cheer magic would give our routines the spice that they need to continue to bring home the wins. We would kindly ask for your donation to support our cheer program.

My Project

How you can help?

Pom poms make everything sparkle.

The items that I have chosen for this project consist of durable vinyl with an easy to grip handle. They have received a 4.5 star rating per peer reviews. They each come in a plastic reusable bag that can keep the pom poms safe when not in use.

Your generous donation will help offset the increasing cost of keeping cheer-leading in our schools and communities. These teams are the epitome of school spirit and keep us connected. In the face of all the negativity in our world today, our spirit is what maintains our togetherness.
