Teachers- thanks for being amazing!

Here at WWF-Canada, we are always impressed with what teachers and students do for our organization through our Community Panda program. In the last few months, we’ve received a lot of letters from teachers across the country, from Halifax to Winnipeg, telling us about the amazing contributions they’ve made to WWF. We wanted to say THANK YOU to all of these amazing Canadian teachers who continue to inspire their students to make positive change happen by supporting WWF-Canada.

From a middle school teacher in Winnipeg:

  •   “We started a grade 7 Tigers Go Green group, which focuses on environmental issues and sustainable living. Our very first fundraising effort was a cupcake sale in support of the World Wildlife Fund”

From an elementary school in Calgary:

  •  Students raffled off a WWF symbolic adoption kit raising awareness about species at risk, and also raising over $400 for WWF!

And in Quebec students of Trafalgar Elementary School started an “Earth Club” to learn about the Arctic and hosted a classroom fundraising event that raised money to support WWF’s Arctic program.

From jewelry and bake sales, to fashion shows and polar bear walks, WWF wants to thank Canadian teachers and their students for all of their creativity and passion to raise awareness about WWF’s conservation work, and for finding cool new and fun ways to fundraise.  Your efforts have helped teach kids about the importance of a healthy environment, and what they can do to make a difference.  Thank you for supporting WWF-Canada!
