To raise money for American Red Cross response in Haiti, a local elementary school sold paper hearts.
Fourth-graders at Nations Ford Elementary raised hundreds of dollars for the Red Cross by selling paper hearts to their peers and teachers.
Red Cross representative visited the school and asked if the students knew how their money would be spent.
“To get people food,” one student answered.
“To get them water,” said another one.
The students were very knowledgeable about Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti, and they were eager to help.
