Faribault Girl Raising Funds for Local School Lunch Needs

Published On: February 7th, 20231 min readCategories: Covid-19, Featured, Latest Headlines, Local News, News

My name is Ella Bettner, I’m 11 years old from Faribault, MN. I am also the owner/founder of No Tummies Left Behind, a local charity I started in 2021 when I realized that kids in my school could not afford lunches and I wanted to make a change to that.

So, we raise money by either partnering with businesses or doing booths to sell my homemade, adjustable charm bracelets. All proceeds and donations goes towards paying off negative lunch balances for local schools.

So far, I’ve raised over $8,000 dollars and have been able to help students in the Faribault, Medford and WEM School Districts. I’m reaching out to local businesses to see if they would like to partner with me.

So, together, we can help kids pay off their negative lunch balances. We can do this by either partnering to display and sell my bracelets at your business (we would supply the bracelets and display), do a fundraiser, or both! I’m open to any opportunity that will help me reach my goal to pay off all negative lunch balances in our communities.
