In early May, the biggest wildfire in Alberta’s history swept through the town of Fort McMurray, forcing 60,000 people to evacuate their homes. Since then, people everywhere have been finding ways to help.
Take the students of Ontario school C. H. Bray. Their goal was to fundraise $500 to help quench the flames. They hit that target… and then they quadrupled it. By the end of their fundraiser, the school had raised $2136 to help fight the fires. In the words of this poster: way to go, C. H. Bray!
And C. H. Bray wasn’t the only school to help. Students at Crestview Public School in Kitchener, Ontario, stepped up with a creative fundraiser: they could pay $1 to break a school rule, such as the no-hats-inside rule or the don’t-wear-your-pyjamas-to-school rule. Every dollar raised went into helping rebuild Fort McMurray.
These are just two examples of the countless students who have supported Fort McMurray over the past few weeks. To all the young helpers out there: thank you for caring.
P.S. Thanks to OWL readers Sebastian from C. H. Bray and Claire from Crestview Public School for sharing these stories with us.
