Would you take a pie in the face to feed children in Africa?

Three teachers from the Bear Creek School in Redmond, Washington, did just that on Wednesday, March 20th. The entire middle school had gathered to package meals with Children of the Nations (COTN). The students wanted to raise as much money as possible to send as many meals as they could to children in need in Africa and the Caribbean. They came up with lots of creative ideas to raise money, including a raffle to throw a pie in a teacher's face!
In the end, the students raised $6,100 to package 24,000 meals that day. They packaged the meals in a little under an hour, and had a blast! Enjoy their photos:
