Hug it Forward
December 19th, 2011
In the month of November, Mrs. Bahnck’s Third Grade class worked hard to raise money for Hug it Forward, a non-profit organization building schools in Guatemala. The schools they build are made using plastic bottles stuffed with litter, which ties into the classes’ goal of reducing litter as the “Litter League.” Through a Healthy Snack Sale and their “Un-Litter a-thon” the class raised $1,010.00 to donate to Hug it Forward. This is about 20% of the cost of one school. Many thanks to the teachers, parents, and neighbors who sponsored the students and to the students for picking up 1,497 pieces of litter in one week!
