Young Nurturing Minds Supporters Make a Difference
Creative Minds Organize Successful Fundraisers
Within the last several weeks several young entrepreneurs held creative fundraisers and raised money on behalf of Sega.
The first fundraiser was organized by the Teens for Sega, a recently established club at Newton North High School, outside of Boston. Founding members Leah Hahane, Rachel Cooke and Alex Kouroriez invited other Newton students, their mothers and grandmothers to sew fashionable book bags at the local trend-setting West Newton Hipstitch shop. Hipstitch provided all the material, staff and guidance while the girls and their families created colorful bags for spring and raised over $500 for Nurturing Minds and the Sega Girls School! Perhaps the highlight of the event was having visiting Sega student, Nusura Gundi, in attendance and making her own bag!
The second fundraiser was organized by Kira Biener, a 7th grade jump-roping enthusiast and Junior Olympic medalist. Kira learned about Sega through the Souper Supper event held earlier this year. Inspired by the organization, Kira handmade 30 jump ropes to send to Sega and share her passion with the students!
We are incredibly thankful to all of those who helped make these fundraisers possible – everyone’s contributions and hard work is sincerely appreciated!
