My name is Sydney Allen and I am a student at Montrose High School in Montrose Colorado. In the first semester of my senior year, I organized a Hats on Day to try and raise money to donate to the Children with Cancer Foundation.
During our advisory period, I went around to all the classrooms and explained the cause. I passed out stickers with the Hats on Day logo and students were to wear the sticker throughout the day. If students were wearing the sticker, they were allowed to wear a hat.
I successfully raised around six hundred dollars to donate to the CCF. This semester, I am in the process of trying to make it district wide so that we can get all of the elementary schools and the middle schools involved as well.
It is a fun experience and I hope we can raise around 2,000 dollars to donate!
