My son brought home his weekly reader magazine and showed me a story about a 13 year old boy who started the organization, Hoops of Hope, to raise money for orphans in Zambia. I can’t imagine a much better event for North Dakota school kids to undertake some cold day this coming winter, but I also think that a project like this should be kid driven, kid organized. I’ll see if I can gently nudge my son in that direction.
I saw on the website that Ellendale North Dakota ran this fundraiser yesterday (May 17th, 2008).
I also watched the YouTube video used to promote the cause during this year’s March Madness.
