Kingsley Charter Elementary School team qualifies for Destination ImagiNation Global Finals

The seven members of Kingsley Charter Elementary School's "D.I. Doughnuts" Destination ImagiNation team have spent this year learning to work together to solve creative challenges. At the state competition in April, they finished second in their division, qualifying them to compete at the Global Finals international tournament, to be held in May in Knoxville.

The possibility to compete at Global Finals is very exciting, but it is also expensive. To help defray some of the costs, the team is actively raising money to attend the four-day event. The team is hopeful they will be able to raise enough funds to be able to take advantage of this rare opportunity to compete at the highest level and meet other kids from around the world.

The kids are making bracelets, selling doughnuts, and working on other ways to bring in funds. The team has also set up a web site through Crowdtilt to accept donations from members of the Dunwoody community. Link to our page is as follows:

All contributions are tax deductible, and every little bit helps. Please visit our site today and consider making a donation…the campaign on Crowdtilt ends April 29th.

Thank you!
