ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Some Rockford Lutheran students were inspired by the spirit of Christmas to help people on the other side of the world.
Money raised by the students will be uses to buy 14 dairy goats, one dairy cow, and a beehive for people living in Tanzania, in East Africa.
The students raised the money as part of the “Thanks-4-giving 2 Tanzania Giving Tuesday” project.
Students say the grade levels held a competition to raise the most money.
Juniors won, so they got a free, private snack room.
“Honestly it was a lot of fun this month doing the fundraiser,” said sophomore Jackson Soles. “I thought it was a lot of fun. The competition was there, and helping people that are less fortunate honestly puts a smile on my face because it makes me feel better. It does.”
Students raised more than $2,300.
