RAM is working towards our 2009-2010 fundraising goal of $30,000. Money raised will be used to fund the purchase of Montessori materials, teacher bursaries, Montessori education workshops and the repayment of the School Board loan.

To help us reach our goal, RAM is again pleased to bring you our GIFT CARD SALES fundraiser – Progressive Fundraising Event. For every gift card purchased, RAM receives a percentage of the proceeds depending on the vendors (see attached form). There are many different vendors to choose from. So if you’re stuck on gift ideas, this is a great remedy to your dilemma. Give them for Christmas or birthday presents for those who are difficult to buy for or to stock up for thank you gifts. Buy them for yourselves, to give away as presents or ask your friends, family, and co-workers to buy some to support RAM; every sale will help RAM reach our fundraising target.

To place an order, please complete the attached order form and submit it with a cheque payable to the “Richmond Association for Montessori” by
Monday November 23, 2009 to your child’s school office. Certificates will be distributed at your child’s school by the first week of December 2009.

Thank you for your support!
