Indiana Bateman did a business plan on making and selling greeting cards as part of a class project. Now she’s turned the project into a fundraiser to help others. Another example of the Grade 6 student’s creativity is the Walnut Grove neighbourhood banner she drew. It’s hanging in the background.
The Grade 6 student at Alex Hope Elementary is proving that business acumen can be use to change lives.She chose to write a business proposal for a school assignment in her enrichment program, on greeting card production.
Business plan done. School assignment completed. Indiana even came up with a slogan – “Art for Art and Heart for Heart.”Submit the assignment to the teacher and move on, right? Not for Indiana. She’s bringing her business plan to fruition and using greeting cards to fundraise so children in Africa can have art supplies.
