Your everyday purchases can help Madrona!
Check out this info from Maren over at Madrona Primary:
Greetings friends and families! I am excited to announce that the Madrona Primary School is are now a part of the wamoola for schools project!!
It is a program where anyone who has a Washington Mutual debit card can go to the website below and associate their card with a participating school. WAMU gives points toward the chosen school for every time your card is used, and at the end of the year, they make a cash donation to that school based on these points.
You may have seen the article in one of the last weeks beachcomber about this, I have gone to this site and checked it out as well as associated our family's accounts with it. I know that many of the other schools on the island have done this. I have no idea what the percentages or amounts are, but I am excited to see what benefits we can reap from this program.
Click on “enroll now” and fill in the blanks. It is quite easy to do!
I am so grateful to have this program in place to support our schools and ultimately education as a whole!
