Silent Day is to represent the people in other countries who can't express their opinion. We just want the people in other countries to know that we care and want to stop it and maybe the government will see that other people think its bad and that they could let people have their opinion. There will be older kids passing from class tomorrow to collect the money and give the kids a sticker that says: I am silent. If the kids would like to participate then it will be $2. All the money will go to Free The Children, an organisation that gives money to kids in need. It will help them get clean water and a roof over their head and food to eat.
