To make our product, we had a straw heart pin making session with 150 schoolmates helping us. On 8 August 2010, we organized a street sale at Chua Chu Kang with a total of 89 volunteers from many other different schools. If each volunteer approached 100 people on the street (a very realistic estimate), there would be a total outreach of at least 8900 people! After the street sales, we held an in-school car wash. We gathered 50 volunteers from our CCA (co- curricular activities) and our classmates to help out. We standardized the procedures for every car wash. About 30 cars were washed, and many parents and teachers made an effort to donate to our cause. Everyone who got their car washed were quite happy with the results. In the end, we raised SGD$4,643.40 in the week! In the next few weeks, we had other fundraising activites and was eventually able to buy one ventilator for the patients!
