A life-changing spring break for Qualicum Beach students
Fresh off their own Hero Holiday to help build a house in the Dominican Republic, local participants will be selling fish compost to fundraise for other similar trips.
They will be in the Wembley Mall parking lot this Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Contact Lil Rasa at 250-240-0091 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a delivery.
Rasa, a KSS teacher, said that after their life-changing spring break trip, some people are already planning next year's trip and some are even considering career changes.
Rasa has helped local students, parents and school district employees fundraise to participate in Hero Holidays to the Dominican Republic and Mexico for the last 10 years and she's been on three herself.
"Hero Holidays are humanitarian trips facilitated by a Canadian organization called Live Different," she said, adding that she is trying to get the name changed "because none of us feel like heroes."
