Dear Parents,

You should have received an email with a link to your child's pledge (“donation”) page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your child's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your child's online pledge page here:

Keep those pledges coming in so we can meet our goal.
