Birth of the Website

I was a nine-year-old kid in 4th Grade at Mills Elementary School. My dad likes drinking a lot of Diet-Coke. He recycled the bottles, but the caps are not recyclable. He noticed codes are under the caps and found that you could get personal rewards with the codes. My parents got the rewards but then a few months later, Coca-Cola company stopped letting people get the rewards. My dad kept the caps just in case it came back but it did not. My parents put the caps in the pantry and just left them there. During the pandemic, in the summer of 2020, my parents were cleaning out the pantry and they found the caps. My mom said that these caps are useless. I did not know how my parents put in the codes and got the rewards, but I checked the coke website and found that you could donate to Mills. I told my parents and I put in some of the codes. After a few caps, I realized that if everybody was putting in the codes, Mills would get way more donations. I contacted the Coca-Cola company to make sure that it would be donated, and they said that Mills would get it quarterly.

I was planning what I could do with this fundraising thing and thought that making a website was the best way to spread the idea. I first did a free website just to test out WordPress. I did research and watched videos about how to use WordPress. Then, I got a free website started. Later, I bought a domain name and started another website, which is official. As you can see, this IS the website.

Just imagine if every student in Mills (which has about 800 students) put in 5 caps a week, Mills will get $200 for one week and $10,400 for one year!!! I hope everyone can join me to make this happen!
