Social Justice in Lent

Each year as part of our almsgiving Lenten action, we raise money for Caritas through Project Compassion.  Throughout Lent we have had a Project Compassion box on our prayer table.  Each day different children have chosen to donate some of their money.  On the last Wednesday of term we had a whole fundraising day.  For a cold coin donation you could come to school dressed as a circus performer.  The idea was inspired by the story of Raymundo from Bolivia (http://www.caritas.org.au/projectcompassion/weekly-stories/week-2—raymundo) Little Devils Circus School also generously donated some equipment that we got to have a turn with on the day (http://www.littledevilscircus.com.au/index.cfm).  Everyone had a great day supporting the wonderful work of Caritas.
