Pom will sell pomegranates to the public at an inflated cost to raise funds for the charity Pom354, an organization founded by James Brett created to raise money for the farmers of Afghanistan. The funds raised by the organization go towards purchasing pomegranate crop for the farmers of Afghanistan.
The soil in Afghanistan is too dry to sustain most crops. An exception of
this is the poppy crop which is inevitably turned into heroin. 90% of the
world\u2019s heroin comes from Afghanistan. Drug lords in Afghanistan, along with
the Taliban extremist group profit off these sales. The money is used to fund
their insurgency against the NATO troops stationed in the country.
Many political analysts claim that the war in Afghanistan cannot be won
militaristically. The country is plagued by an extremist group which attacks
civilians, the Afghan government, and Canadian and NATO forces. The
country needs a stable economy to support the people of the country.
Germany voted overwhelmingly for Hitler in the \u201830s as they were willing to
risk losing liberty, to gain food and stability. The same could happen in
Afghanistan in the near future.
Pomegranates are an incredibly healthy fruit full of antioxidants, delivering
40% of an adult\u2019s daily vitamin C intake. Pomegranates are natural fruit,
which cannot contain unknown materials like a smoothie or batch of cookies.
This business will consist largely of door-to-door visitations, and if permitted,
sales of the fruit on school property. The American war in Iraq and the NATO-
led and UN sanctioned war in Afghanistan are no different in the eyes of
many Canadians. This campaign will allow the business to educate the public
on the situation overseas and how a legal economy is vital to the survival of
a free Afghanistan. The business and its founders gain no financial
advantage out of the fundraiser. There have been other fundraisers on the
premise of SJA as of recent. Within the last month, there was a fundraiser
involving the sale of popcorn, which is not nearly as healthy as
pomegranates are. The idea for this fundraising idea is no different than the
one which sold popcorn.
