About this fundraiser

Alice, Lily, Carson, and Bella (8th graders at Kettle Moraine Middle School in Dousman, WI) are taking on the challenge of designing AND building a product to fulfill a need for a community organization. They are in Mr. Gutbrod's STEM Independent Study class. The purpose of this project is to truly challenge the students! They have been responsible for all aspects of this big undertaking including: identifying the organization they want to help, determining the needs of their customer and needs of the product, generating ideas, designing the product, building the product, budgeting, and fundraising for the project. They have decided to do a Classmunity project for funding purposes. Even the video's script and outline were created by these students.

Supporting these students also supports the organizations they are trying to help. Thank you for considering.

Contact Mr. Gutbrod (gutbrods@kmsd.ed) with any questions.

Campaign updates

Alice, Lily, Carson, and Bella are beyond grateful for the support that you all have shown! We are working on compiling proper "thank you's" and the rewards so please be patient with us for that. They all have made further progress with their projects like Alice and Lily having one cactus close to done, Carson has his 3D modeling fully completed, Bella has the metal sign work starting and is getting the CNC machine work ready.
Wow! Alice, Lily, Carson, and Bella are feeling great about the support offered so far! Big thanks everyone. ***Please Note: A few "rewards" have been added to the rewards section.

    Hang Out With Cats at Sip and Purr

    Donations of $100 will include the reward of complimentary entry of up to a party of four into the Cat Lounge during normal business hours at Sip and Purr. The Cat Lounge is the enclosed area of Sip and Purr where patrons get to hang out with and cuddle cats. There normally is an admission fee for this part of the building.

    $500 (2 left)

    VIP Cat Cuddle Time at Sip and Purr

    Any kind of donation is greatly appreciated and a donation of $500 is way beyond what we would imagine. But.... if someone were so inclined.... donating $500 results in the reward of a party of four getting to enjoy cat cuddle time in the Cat Lounge at Sip and Purr, OUTSIDE of normal business hours as a "PRIVATE EVENT". Your party of four would get to hang out with the cats for about an hour and have all of the cats just to yourselves. Date and time will have to be arranged with Sip and Purr owner Katy.

    In addition, each 8th grade student (Alice, Lily, Carson, and Bella) will show their gratitude by each individually writing a "thank you" letter to you.
