Rainier Christian School

Rainier Christian School, Maple Valley Elementary Campus is a school of 140 students located in Renton WA. In February each year the school does a Missions Month.  This year the faculty chose Sweet Sleep to be the focus for their missions project.  They chose Sweet Sleep because of the simple impact they could have on educating the students on the plight of orphan children in orphanages in countries like Moldova.

Raising money to make beds for the children, giving them bedding and a Bible is a simple way of giving to others and sharing their love to these children on the other side of the world. The goal at Rainier is to have each classroom build 3 beds each which is approx. $600 for a total of 21 beds or $4,200 in the month of February.

The kids had a launch presentation on Sweet Sleep which created the awareness of the needs of these children and the horrid conditions of the beds the orphanage. Then the goal was set and each week they are challenged to fundraise in various ways.  
 

We loved the fact that Sweet Sleep makes it easy, by providing simple tools and resources like the coin boxes to raise funds.  Then the kids are given half way through the program a work certificate that encourages them to work for funds.  Finally they will be awarded a Slumber Party at the school during the day if the full amount of money is raised. They added a quilt square for each bed they funded to show their progress.

The kids at RCS “Love Sweet Sleep”. If you or your group would like more information on how you can raise funds and build beds for orphans, contact Sarah at sarah@sweetsleep.org.
