The Cloonan Kiva Club 

                               Thank you all the students who helped out for the Cloonan food drive! The Cloonan Kiva Club loaded more than 650 cans and food onto the food drive truck! This year was a great year for the food drive. As we think of how Mr. Claps had to tragically leave Cloonan Middle School, we are still continuing with the Trap The Claps project. Instead of trapping Mr. Claps, We are now planning on trapping Mr. Serifino! The project will go on. Also, some of the members of the club had the chance to experience the new 3D printer in the room. Over all the Kiva Club had a huge success in this weeks meeting. To sum it all up, the Kiva Club Loaded more than 650 cans into the food drive truck, went on with the Trap the Claps project, and finally discovered a 3D printer. Therefore, the Kiva Club had a great week.

Balloon Car STEM project!

11/7 meeting!

Today we are working on the jail for TRAP Mr.Claps, and making more posters.  We will be locking Mr.Claps in a jail to help raise money for Kiva. Kids will pay $1 per spin, and whatever amount of time the spinner lands on, will be the amount of time he stays in the jail.

    Making a spinner for the jail.

    Making posters.

    Working on the jail cell for Mr.Claps.

Dear Kiva fans,

Today we loaned $25 to a woman named Betty in South America.We raised the money from our candy corn contest. The next fundraiser we might do is called "TRAP Mr. Claps". It will be $1 per spin to see how long he will be in jail.  We'll keep you updated!

 Thanks a lot from the Kiva club!

As you may already know we're doing the mustache fundraiser. We're very close to our goal of 100 dollars, meaning Mr.Forde will shave his mustache off very soon. We'll be sure to document this event and will tell you where it's posted in a later update.

kiva video draft #1

This is what we have so far. The final product will be up in a few day, so stay tuned!

Update 1/31/2014


We haven't posted in a while because we've been very busy working on our newest project. For the past few weeks, we've been putting together a simple video, in hopes to get the word out about our cause. It should be out on this blog in about a week, so please stay tuned and check it out!

We're constantly trying to find ways to raise money for the microloans, but our most helpful sources are you guys! Currently, we have a total of $195 in microloans, each cent of which is going to small business owners in third-world countries. Every dollar is appreciated and so are all of our supporters! Thank you and we'll keep you posted!
