Day 7 - Winter Learning Journey

Today I have been asked to: It is very expensive for each of the Paralympic athletes to fly from New Zealand to Rio de Janeiro to compete.  Most athletes have to fundraise in order to make the money that they need to go on the big trip. Recently, Harvey Norman announced that they will be helping to raise funds for the New Zealand Paralympic team. What could you do to help raise funds to support our amazing Paralympic athletes? On your blog, list 2 different ways in which you, your family or friends could raise money to support the athletes. C:\Users\rwil313\Desktop\Paralympic logo Nz.jpg
I think a good idea would be to open up a website which people could fund to. Another good idea would be getting a popular community store eg. Pakinsave,Countdown etc to sponsor you.


  1. Hi Zeba,

    I think that your idea of opening up a donation website is a really good one. In fact, a few of the Paralympic athletes already have Givealittle sites where people can go and donate money to support their bid to travel to Rio to compete in the games. If you'd like to see what a Givealittle website looks like, feel free to check our Fraser Sharp's page. He is a paralympic cyclist from New Zealand.

    I also just wanted to take a minute to congratulate you, Zeba, on a great effort this holiday. You have posted blogs for almost every single activity in the Winter Learning Journey programme. That is amazing! I'm sure that you will continue to show your amazing work ethic and dedication to learning when you get back to school. I'll look forward to seeing you at Panmure Bridge when I come in to hand out the awards and certificates for the Winter Learning Journey programme.



  2. Hi Zeba, I think you have some great ideas for fundraising. For my fundraising ideas I chose different ones. Check out my blog if you want to find out.

  3. Hello Zeba, I think you have some very thoughtful and helpful ideas for raising money. Keep up the great work.
