Dia de los Muertos Celebrations
All over campus, many classrooms and grades will be celebrating Dia de los Muertos on Nov 2. Please check with your students' teachers to learn more about these celebrations!
ADS is thrilled to partner with Coin Up, a revolutionary mobile donation app that virtually rounds up your credit or debit card transactions to the next dollar, and automatically donates your spare change to ADS every month. You can even set a monthly limit so that your donations never exceed that amount!
Starting in November, we'll have a CoinUp Jar located in the front lobby so if you're not the tech savvy type or if you want to just get rid of all that spare change in your car, you will be able to physically "Coin Up" as well!
“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” - Howard Zinn
It may seem impossible for a little spare change to make an impact, but consider this; If 500 people donate $10 of spare change each month – it adds up to $5,000 a month, or $60,000 a year! That’s enough for ADS to do sooo much good.
You can Coin Up in 3 Easy Steps:
1. Download the (free) Coin Up App from the Apple Store OR visit coinupapp.com
2. Select ADSI or Austin Discovery School as your charity
3. Link your bank card & set a monthly limit If you haven't signed up yet because you have an android phone, the good news is that CoinUp can now be found on Google Play.
