Homecoming Carnival: DHS Clubs Aim for Global Impact

This homecoming, clubs at DHS  are looking to make a positive impact not only on their community, but around the world. At their booths during the homecoming carnival, clubs such as UNICEF and Me to We will be collecting money to support the wellbeing of individuals living in less privileged areas. If you’re going to the Homecoming Carnival, be sure to look out for the following clubs among the booths!


UNICEF is an international NGO which provides much-needed help to citizens of underprivileged countries

UNICEF, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund, is a global organization which has spent nearly 70 years working to improve the lives of children and their families. Led by sophomore Ashley Chon, Dublin High’s UNICEF club aims to aid the organization in their mission to  help all children realize their rights—especially the most disadvantaged.

“This organization is the basis of what we believe in,” said Ashley. “We believe in zero; zero preventable deaths in children and zero children denied an education.”

UNICEF will be selling bubble tea from T4, a popular boba place. At the carnival they hope to raise $100-$200, part of their overall goal of $1000 this school year. All proceeds will go to UNICEF to promote equity and prevent deaths of children globally.

Me to We

Me to We
Me to We is a sub-organization of Free the Children, focusing on connecting local and international services.

An “innovative social enterprise” enabling ordinary individuals to change the world, Me to We empowers people to make a positive difference through service. The Me to We club at Dublin High works on both global and local service projects, encouraging members to be aware of needs in the community and worldwide.

Keep an eye out for the club’s booth, where they are selling lemon bars. The proceeds from these tasty treats will go to Free The Children, an organization connected to Me to We. From there, the money will be used to fund the construction of a school in Sierra Leone, Africa. So far, Me to We club has raised $3,700 out of their $10,000 goal. At the carnival, the club hopes to raise at least $300.

“It’s simple to make in impact in another country,” said club president Madeline Williamson. “By supporting the Me to We club, your money will give children the opportunity to learn and fulfill their dreams.”

Room to Read

Room to Read is a national organization aiming to improve world literacy by implementing literacy programs into underprivileged schools in Africa and Asia, as well as a Girls’ Education program that enables young girls to pursue their education. Dublin High’s Room to Read club actively promotes the cause by running literacy mentoring programs at the library, book drives, and “Girl Rising” screenings.

At the carnival, look out for Room to Read at their booth, where they will be running a 5-pin bowling game. Proceeds will go to giving underprivileged children the education they deserve.

More events to look out for from Room to Read: Spoken Word Night and a book drive! The club is hoping to have a Spoken Word Night in the next few months. Students can prepare a poem, song, act, (you name it!) to perform at the fundraising event. In Spring, Room to Read will also be holding a book drive; every book donated will go towards building a library in Sierra Leone, Africa.
