Inspiring Tasmanian Student Launches Coffee Fundraiser for UNICEF
Next week (starting 26 October) Dominic College student Ursula Harris will be launching her ‘Coffee for a Cause’ campaign.
Ursula has partnered up with her local coffee shop, Platform 1 Coffee Shop in Claremont Village, which all next week will be donating $1 from every cup sold to UNICEF’s School-in-a-box program.
Ursula was selected as one of five Student Ambassadors from across Australia for the World Education Games. Since 2012 the World Education Games have partnered with UNICEF to jointly provide the School-in-a-box program. The 2015 Games may have finished, but Ursula knows there is more that she can do to help the fundraising efforts.
“I’m enthusiastic about raising money for UNICEF and am well underway with our local fundraising campaign,” said Ms Harris.
“Every $261 raised will go towards a School-in-a-box. A School-in-a-box is full of all the standard educational equipment, such as rulers, text books, a globe, calculators…. and can provide everything that is needed to teach up to 80 students with just one teacher, in an area deprived of school and education, through war, isolation or natural disaster.”
If you’re in Hobart next week make sure you pop in to Platform 1 Coffee Shop and say hello to Ursula.
