Love and affection: giving a child love and attention helps them feel confident, relaxed and happy, which in turn, promotes their intellectual development.
Our Lady of the Mountain has partnered with Benefit as a free and easy fundraising solution!
Benefit is a free iPhone and Android app that allows you to shop at places like Target, Starbucks, Amazon, Walmart and many more, while giving up to 20% of every transactions back to your local organization. Just shop like you normally do and when it comes time to checkout, instead of pulling out your credit card, pull out the Benefit app and purchase a digital gift card that you redeem instantly.
For instance, buy $200 worth of back to school clothing at Gap, and $16 (8%) goes back to your organization. It doesn’t cost you a dime beyond what you were already going to spend. It’s raising funds without fundraising!
Download the app and select Our Lady of the Mountain as your chosen beneficiary to start giving today. It’s totally free!
For more information go to www.benefit-mobile.com/fundraisers. Feel free to forward this email to family and friends. The more people who participate, the more funds we will raise.
Parents tell the truth
Before going into the church take a moment to remind children what you are about to do. Make sure they know what their job is as Mass. For us, we say that their job is to be quiet/still, to participate by sharing their voices and to pray. Their job is also not to distract those around them from praying.
Think about who your teachers are… your school teachers, your coaches, your parents and grandparents, your brothers and sisters, your CCD teacher and Jesus! Remember to thank your teachers for all that they do for you and pray for them.
