Cape Christian School students raise funds

Thursday, January 13, 2005

There's little in life that inspires generosity among children more than friendly competition and the possibility of kissing a frog. Those two motivators have led students at Cape Christian School to raise more than $1,500 over the past two weeks for tsunami victims. The money was raised through a penny war and the class that brings in the most from the fund raiser, which ends today, can designate any person in the school to kiss a frog. Principal Mary Caldwell said the school will likely reach $2,000 by the end of today. The money will be donated to Samariton's Purse, a nondenominational Christian organization that is taking part in relief efforts in South Asia.
