Key Club Hearts for Ronald McDonald House
 
Ms. Squibb would like to thank all Key Club members who worked diligently to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House.  We raised approximately $400!  Ronald McDonald Houses are home environments providing support and resources that help keep families with sick children together and near the care and resources they need.  Thanks University School family for supporting this worthy cause!  Proud of our Generous Bucs!

We have colorful hand-made bracelets, key chains, lanyards, and other items made in the Philllipines for sale.  The fund raiser is called "Threads of Hope".

Threads of Hope is a livelihood project initiated by Alex and Chris Kuhlow in March of 2003 to bring help and hope to families at risk in the Philippines. This outreach was launched from one simple act of compassion for a friend on a tropical beach there.  An order for 1200 bracelets was made to provide a struggling family with a good source of income for an entire month. The artistry and effort that went into each piece was astounding. Since then, others have wanted to buy the bracelets to help the poor and the Kuhlows have partnered with multiple groups and individuals in their efforts to raise funds. 100% of the profits were used to employ other struggling families. As a result, Threads of Hope is now providing a steady income to 250 families, nearly 700 people and is striving to help more.

In 2011, University School Key Club partnered with Threads of Hope, Inc. and raised more than $1,200 for the families selling handmade bracelets. We want to initiate another fund raising effort this year and are selling a variety of handmade products, including round and flat bracelets, key chains, lanyards, book marks, eye wear cords ,and necklaces.  These products range in price from only $2.00 to $8.00. The Threads of Hope foundation allows schools and others raising funds to keep one half of the proceeds from sales. This year Key Club will seek to donate our share of funds raised to local entities and charities, such as Johnson City Homeless Education Services, Second Harvest Food Bank, and others.

If you are interested in purchasing one of these beautiful handmade products, please contact Ms. Squibb. Key Club members will also be selling the items.
