The Liberia Project 2017
The final days of our school-wide Liberia fundraising are this week.
Thursday's theme: Buck for Luck and class colors
Friday's theme: Fuzzy Faire Day - Treat sale, games, photo booth, etc. All monies go to The 2017 Liberia Project.

We are trying to help our sister school in Monrovia bring technology into the classrooms. Currently, they have no Internet wiring and no tablets or computers in their pre-K-9 school.

The class at Bel Aire that raises the most money will win a special party. We accept cash, checks made out to The Rotary Club of Tiburon-Belvedere Foundation, or online donations. Thank you for your support!
For more information about the history of this partnership and to donate using a credit card, please visit our site . You can also access the site from the Bel Aire homepage.
