Rice Bowls

The money you donate by filling up your rice bowl goes to Rice Bowl organizations across the world, in India, South Africa, Rwanda, Ethiopia, The Philippines, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Honduras.

  1. Starting December 13th, Rice Bowls will given out to Saint John of the Ladder.
  2. Take a bowl! Once you fill it up, you can get a new one.
  3. Gathering date: 4-6 weeks after start date
  4. Fill up the bowls! Keep them in your car, fill them with extra change, with dollar bills, etc. Treat them like piggy banks.
  5. I will collect the bowls on the gathering date: January 31, 2015
  6. Break them open and add everything up!
  7. I will submit the funds on the website or send a check with the return slip to the Rice Bowls organization.
  8. If you have any questions, ask me, Emily Eich, look on Rice Bowl’s Facebook, or look on their website at ricebowls.org
