Random Act of Kid-ness: Students Raise Money for Teacher’s Recovery

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Baltimore, MD, where a third grade class raised over $13,000 through lemonade stands and an online campaign to help their teacher. The teacher, Anne Mekalian, lost all Quadruple Amputeeof her limbs when a blood infection led to gangrene. The money raised would give Anne the funds to properly outfit her car and get driving lessons so that she can one day drive again. One student said:

“We want to see her in the hallways and the classroom, and we want to make sure she’s in our school again because I want little kids younger than me to know how great she was.” 

What an amazing act of generosity! Read more about the story here and check out the students’ online donation page here.
