Teacher Is Raising Money to Buy Every Kid in Her School a Bike
A teacher named Katie Blomquist from North Charleston, South Carolina recently started a GoFundMe campaign to buy bikes for every kid in her entire school, and in the first month raised 25,000. There's approximately 650 kids in the school, and most come from low income families. As of last night, the total money donated was 36K. And each bike should cost her around $100. So she needs a total of $65,000 to make it happen.
If she raises the money needed, a bike shop in Charleston is going to customize all 650 bikes for free, and put each kid's name on them. If you want to help Katie out Click HERE. If there's any money left over, she will purchase the kids helmets and bike locks.
