Weekly Activity - Activity 2 ( Day 7 )

Learn - It is very expensive for each of the Paralympic athletes to fly from New Zealand to Rio de Janeiro to compete.  Most athletes have to fundraise in order to make the money that they need to go on the big trip. Recently, Harvey Norman announced that they will be helping to raise funds for the New Zealand Paralympic team. What could you do to help raise funds to support our amazing Paralympic athletes? On your blog, list 2 different ways in which you, your family or friends could raise money to support the athletes.

The first thing I will do will ask our Parish Community if they can fun raise for the New Zealand Paralympics team to go to their destination which is Rio De Janeiro to compete in the Olympics. This is very important for them to get this kind of opportunity to compete, this is what I will say to the Parish Community of Glen Innes if we had to Fun raise for this kind of thing.

The second thing I will do is that I will go out there and sell things such as new/old things, books and etc. Once I recieve as much money as I can get I will give it straight to the New Zealand Paralymic Team so they can go over there to win a Gold Medal for their supporters.


  1. It is clear that you are a very kind and thoughtful person, Joshua. You have come up with two very helpful ways of raising money for the Paralympic athletes. Like you, I would also be happy to sell things that I didn't need anymore in order to raise funds for the team.

    Great thinking!

    Cheers, Rachel

  2. Thanks for the comment and yes they are creative ways to funraise.
