Comfy for Cows

Wear pyjamas to school for a good cause? Heck yeah!


The students at Maple Ridge Christian School (MRCS) chose to substitute Halloween this year for a good cause - they called it “Comfy for Cows”.

In exchange for being allowed to wear their pyjamas to school, students donated a toonie to Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada to help buy dairy cows for families in Uganda. Dairy cows provide milk for families to drink and calves to sell for future income. The student fundraising goal was $120 dollars, but in the end, MRCS actually made a gift of $530! When asked if the event was a success, one student leader exclaimed, “I would say it’s a success because everyone brought money. One boy brought $60!”

Verena Bergen, the Development Coordinator at MRCS, outlined the reasons for sharing their student body’s generosity with FH, “We appreciate their holistic approach to walk alongside churches, leaders, and families in developing nations to help them transform their communities from despair to hope. We are excited to be agents of change - to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.”

The Middle School Student Council seemed especially excited about the matching promise connected to FH’s dairy cow program. One student leader explained, “Cows provide milk and manure for plants. And if you raise $120, it will quadruple the money!” All the grades got involved, and even the RCMP school liaison came ready to support Comfy for Cows (see photo).

FH is, once again, humbled and excited to see the immense creativity and joy of our supporters. It just goes to show you’re never too young to get involved in helping others - and you can have fun doing it!
