Eagle Ridge Coloring for a Cause

Eighth-graders in Jennifer Baxter’s art class at Eagle Ridge Middle School have designed a coloring book for charity.

Last year, a similar coloring book – compiled by Baxter – raised $5,156 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, the eighth-graders have chosen the Make-A-Wish Foundation to receive the proceeds of the book. The printing costs for 400 books was donated and 100 percent of the profits go toward granting a wish for a sick child in Virginia or Maryland.

The goal is to raise at least $5,000.

The coloring book is being sold at the school for $15 (cash or check made payable to ERMS).

They are being sold online at https://osp.osmsinc.com/LoudounVA/BVModules/CategoryTemplates/Detailed%20List%20with%20Properties/Category.aspx?categoryid=DB088.

There is a 4 percent fee plus a 35-cent transaction fee for ordering online. This fee is not received by Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) but is a processing fee for the company hosting the website.
