Thanks They were basically giving them away for the price of shipping, so it was only $.50.

I just wanted to share with everyone especially Maddy, how my little town on the map are stepping up to the plate in helping Africa.

I found this in my local paper:

This is my old high school:

Calhoun reaches out to Africa
Seniors raise $35K to aid school for children devestaded by Ugandan civil war.

Invisible Children is a rapidly growing charity that is working to get the word out about atrocities in Uganda. In northern Uganda the Lords Resistance Army has declared war on the government and forced thousands of children to fight in its militias. Calhoun students decided to help after viewing on of its films, "Invisible Children: Rough Cut," at their school.

Calhouns Senior Experience program which connect seniors with internships and causes let them through film to IC. Senior Experience participants joined Invisible Childrens Schools for Schools program raising money for the Atanga School in Uganda. This year they raised more than $34,000 for the school the second highest total of any american high school.

Calhoun formed its own IC Chapter it overtook the class's daily makeup and every senior was involved. Students who are planning to go to Hofstra are going to set up a chapter of IC there.

Originally $17,129 was raised and a student who works at Old Navy got the company to match the money thus making it $34, 260 all of which will go to the Atanga School.

If Calhoun raised $200 more they would have won a trip to the Atanga School in Unganda to help out.

I can't believe how this is spreading like wildfire here. Its truly amazing.
I just wish I knew this was going on before it was over and I would have found away to donate $200 for these kids.

Its fantastic anyway the both Calhoun and Atanga win.

That's awesome! I'm sorry you didn't find out about it beforehand, but either way, that's an incredible amount of money! Our school raised about $3,000 in the end. I was surprised we raised so much, but I'm glad we did!

I'm so happy the word is being spread

Thats incredible. Great job! I am so happy the word is spreading. There are quite a few kids in school that are also starting to wear RED products too!

After going to the website: I looked at all the schools that joined and 3 of them were from little Long Island.
