Valentines Day personalised delivery service
The Beaconsfield School Amnesty Group marked Valentines Day by offering a personalised delivery service to students and staff.
The Beaconsfield School Amnesty Group marked Valentines Day by offering a personalised delivery service to students and staff. In return for a £1.50 donation, a single rose would be delivered to whomever you nominated with a message of your choice. Demand was high and the evening of the 13 January was spent removing thorns from roses, handwriting the 72 messages, attaching them to the roses and then working out where people were going to be the next day so that the various cupid helpers could make their deliveries.
Raising just short of £90, the service was a great success, and plans are already underway to provide an egg delivery service ready for Easter.
The funds will be used to fund micro-finance loans (via non-profit organisation Kiva) to people in developing world countries, targeting loans for female education, a project that the group are working on alongside their other activities campaigning on human rights issues.
Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
