For over 30 years, Don’t Mess With Texas has channeled Texas-sized state pride to remind Texans to keep trash off our roads. AESA would like to officially join this effort – to help keep our roadways clean, protect our environment, promote sustainable practices, give back to our community, and simply to be the change in the world we would like to see.
AESA is seeking to raise 6k to Adopt a Highway; a one-mile stretch of highway 290 between mile markers 560-561. These funds will pay for the monthly cleanup crews and maintenance for 1 year.
AESA Fundraising Efforts
Thank You Gift Calendar
AESA Students and the Community are sharing Thank You Gift Calendars. Each calendar purchased will automatically enter the buyer’s name or buyer’s designated names into a drawing. Each day of the month in December, AESA will conduct a drawing from all of the names to determine that day’s winner. The prizes are made up of gift certificates to local vendors. The gift certificates range in value from $20 to $50.
1 Calendar for $20
3 Calendar for $50
2020 Don't Mess with Texas Benefactor
Become a 2020 Don’t Mess with Texas Benefactor with a donation of $500 or more. Benefactors will have the opportunity to have their name, family name, any designated name of their choosing, or Anonymous Donor title memorialized in the first ever “Don’t Mess with Texas | Anti-Litter Campaign” plaque and/or a brick to be laid in the Pay it Forward Plaza; which will be prominently displayed for the entire school community to see. It is our hope AESA students will recognize the importance of philanthropy early in life by routinely viewing this plaque. It is also our hope to begin a tradition of Don’t Mess with Texas Benefactors for years to come.
All donations are considered as Tax-Deductible Charitable Contributions.
