Maryland schoolchildren can contribute to Haiti fund
The Maryland State Department of Education is providing the structure to allow schoolchildren a means to channel their concern over the earthquake victims in Haiti into fundraising for the devastated region. After Hurricane Katrina, the state's schoolchildren raised $1.3 million.
Today, the department announced that it would set up a fund that school systems can contribute to until Feb. 12. For more information go to the website...www.MarylandPublicSchools.org.
Are teachers out there trying to include something about Haiti in their lesson plans to help children deal with the many sad pictures they are seeing?
