When Kids Have Skin in the Game

Somehow, I like the message for Jump Rope for Heart much more than Go Red for Women campaign:
“I’m very proud of everyone who has collected and helped save lives,” McLaughlin said.

 Forty-five students, the most ever, collected donations. Although there were prizes for raising money, many students told their teacher they wanted to help people.

 “I had students say, ‘I’m not doing this for the prizes. I’m doing it to help people,’” he said. “I told them, that is a great attitude.

 “I couldn’t be more proud of them in these tough economic times.”
To me,that's what it's all about.

Nice job, kids!
