Lydiksen Elementary

Lydiksen wheelchair fund raiser

“Helping Others Helps Others in Need” - Lydiksen held our kick-off assembly on Friday, Feb. 3 for our 5th annual Wheelchair Fund Raiser in collaboration with the non-profit Wheelchair Foundation
 
The fund raiser will run through the end of February. Last year Lydiksen raised enough money to send 60 wheelchairs to Ecuador and Bolivia. This year we are raising money to help people in Argentina. Ask your child how he/she could raise money - having a lemonade stand, doing extra chores at home, mowing the neighbor’s lawn, donating piggy bank money.
 
We are hoping that through their fund-raising effort, our Lydiksen students will understand and feel the impact they have on creating a better world one wheelchair at a time! Here are short videos of Lydiksen's impact on Honduras in 2014, Peru in 2015, and Ecuador/Bolivia last summer!
