New Hampshire students jump rope, sell cookies to help buy 34 Apple iBooks for school

“Students at Highland-Goffe


  1. OK. Am I the only one stuck on the fact that local business ONLY gave $450. What an inspiring show of civic duty (not). The local Wal-Mart, which doesn’t even sell Apple computers, gave more. They really couldn’t find five businesses willing to contribute $100 each. More praise to the kids, their parents, and the local PTA. That’s a lot of work on their part, especially since they were dealing with $1-$10 donations at a time.

  2. I love these kinds of stories. Being a father of 3, it makes me feel pretty good when I hear the kids are making these kinds of efforts IN CONJUNCTION WITH the school and it’s local community. The kids should always be active participants in these processes no matter what. Good for them!!!

  3. I am right with you, Matt. �ll too often in the Houston area the standard fundraising approach for sports teams heading for playoffs seems to be holding buckets at busy intersections. I understand that there are challenges to raising money for extracurricular activities, but I don’t think that this approach is good for the kids.

    These kids not only gained some great iBooks, but they also learned how to organize and work towards a goal. That is a valuable life lesson.

  4. Hey RASMUS:

    “uhm, where can I jump rope for a DP G5 with a 23″ Cinema screen ???”

    That’s exactly the set up I have! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> With another 19″CRT…

    Just bragging, mind you! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
