monkey-bars-smiles.jpgFrom doing extra chores to collecting from the Tooth Fairy, elementary students spent the last month fundraising, as a sort of New Year’s resolution to be kind and generous.

The $4,520 collected isn’t going to a school program, though. Teachers asked students to look beyond their needs and support the Free Wheelchair Mission, a California nonprofit organization that sends specialized wheelchairs to countries around the world.

In the end, the children felt so good about themselves, with the knowledge that they could make a difference in a stranger’s life.
