Letter Writing Campaign
Step 1 - Select Your Project

Letter-writing campaigns are an incredibly effective way to raise money for technology!

Case Study: There were only 62 kids at Sunderland Elementary School who raised over $20,000 in donations with a letter-writing campaign.

A Great Project, Makes a Great Story!

You'll need a good project at the center of your letter-writing campaign. Imagine receiving a letter that says,

"... please donate money so that we can buy digital cameras."

That letter won't be nearly as effective as,

"...we're setting up a 'mock' crime scene in our class. Students will get to use digital cameras to photograph and analyze clues. Then we're going to write forensics reports, and create presentations for a mock courtroom proceeding, using digital software."

A letter writing campaign will be more successful if your students have a story to tell. Every great project begins with an idea, so be creative and find out what interests your students.

Browse the Free Lesson Plan Library

Every project idea in the Digital Wish Lesson Plan Library was created by teachers who wanted to acquire cameras and software for their classroom. Invite your students to browse!
