Wednesday Folder – November 12, 2014

Hi Super Amazing Thunderbird Parents!

Most of you know that THIS WEEK, November 10-14, is Mission 75 Challenge Match Week! We need each one of you to spread the word to neighbors, friends, aunts, uncles, even grandparents in a different time zone…any donations next week get matched dollar for dollar by Alkali Marketing and a few generous community members up to $7500!


  • Post on Facebook
  • Email your neighbors, family, friends, co-workers, and anybody who has ever asked you to pledge their bike ride or made you buy cookies, wrapping paper, popcorn or who-knows-what for their own causes!
  • Call up the grandparents!
  • Whatever you can do to spread the word so we can DOUBLE our donations!
  • Give! If you’ve got more to offer or have been waiting for this moment, make sure you drop off a check or go online to

IF YOU NEED A JUMPSTART, cut/paste the language below and edit to reflect your sentiment. You can also send them to so they can see the amazing infographic and video about our school.

Friends and Family – have you heard that Travis Heights Elementary is fundamentally changing education in Austin? We could not be more excited with how our new community-led charter is going – but we need funding to keep our innovative programs going! Will you PLEASE help us? It’s our BIGGEST FUNDRAISING WEEK of the year! All this week, we’ve got matching funds lined up to turn every dollar you give into two! Visit for more.

We would love to see this week end with a big chunk (dare I say ALL?!) of that $75K goal reached!!

And I know we can do it because… Thunderbirds Really Rock!!
