High school students in Fort Worth use an unconventional method to fundraise for charity.
Fort Worth, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – Fort Worth high school students are breaking school rules in support of a good cause. As reported by CBS 11 News, students at North Crowley High School had the opportunity to participate in a Key Club fund-raiser for which students paid a few dollars to violate the dress code Friday.
Key Club member Janani Sundaresan is quoted in the report as stating of the means for earning money for Haiti relief, “We came up the idea to have students pay for the opportunity to wear jeans… And that money goes directly to Haiti.”
As noted in the report, a total of $4,500 was raised by the students during Friday’s dressing down event, which was fully matched by an anonymous donor.
