A fund-raising call went out to the world asking students to help with the healing by folding and sending cranes to the organization. The Bezos Family Foundation pledged $200,000 if they received 100,000 cranes. The response to the plea was momentous, and well over a million cranes from all 50 states and over 38 countries were received, and over $500,00 was raised.
At our school Emma Bogush and Maddie Baker led the effort, and in a short period of time, students at our school made and sent in over 300 cranes.
There are many ways for our students to get involved and help out others. I suggest you check out the website at http://studentsrebuild.org/ for more details.
