#GIVINGTUESDAY @ Wildwood, Donate now thru Dec. 1

help-share-donate-give-back1We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, the Wildwood community will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give back to our school.

This is Wildwood’s first year participating in #GivingTuesday. Donate anytime, any amount through Dec 1, and encourage friends and family to do the same through your social media networks. All funds raised will go directly to supporting Wildwood’s PGO to ensure we can continue to fulfill our important mission.


Passive Fundraisers:  easy ways to help raise money for Wildwood (earn money while you shop!)

Online Shopping through Goodshop

This has the potential to be our biggest money maker if everyone participates!  You register yourself for a free account and designate Wildwood Elementary to be the recipient).  Then when you shop, you click on, and then on to your favorite store, and a 1-5% rebate will be credited to Wildwood for everything you purchase!
There is also a Goodsearch link, but we DO NOT recommend installing the toolbar, as it slows down your computer.  Wildwood would only get a penny everytime you used their search engine.
