AALEAD students most recently led a fundraising car wash event to help Japan in their most recent natural disaster and their on going nuclear disaster. We were able to raise more than $850 dollars!
Afterwards though, we wanted to know the “WHY?”. So we asked them, “Why did you want to help Japan?”. Here are their responses:
I wanted to help Japan because I felt bad for them and that we could do something for the world with troubles once and a while
I wanted 2 help Japan because of the earth quake
People lost their lives and everything they had
I did it because if that was my country, I would want people to help send money…wouldn’t you?
I just wanted to help out, to show Japan that we care for what happened to them. :]
I help Japan because I love the thing that is made from and/or come from Japan. For example eraser, sushi, origami and the Japanese dresses. If Japan disappears in the global map all of the culture from Japan is going to disappear with Japan and we won’t know anything about Japan from this generation on.
Great job AALEADers…we are so proud of you!
