February 7th is Bubble Gum Day

In 2006 Ruth Spiro, writer, author, and mother of two wanted to come up with a fundraiser that she knew children would love to get involved with and also promote within their schools and communities. Schools have so many fundraisers throughout the year but many students are not really comfortable with selling items that don’t interest them. That was the beginning of a sticky relationship and Bubble Gum Day was born! In participating schools nationwide kids donate 50₵ and are allowed to chew bubble gum in their school. Ms. Spiro also has fun activity ideas that can teach writing, math, science, and art all while blowing bubbles. The proceeds are donated to causes like Heifer International, which is a non-profit organization that helps to end hunger and poverty around the world, care packages for soldiers in Iraq, and Reading is Fundamental, a non-profit organization that promotes literacy and donates books to children living in poverty. This year all donations will be sent to World Read Aloud Day (March 5, 2014) in efforts to help decrease the amount of people in the world that are illiterate. I don’t know about you, but chewing gum never felt so good! Feeling a little bubbly? Get your community involved and start chewing to help make a difference in someone’s life!
