Students at Elk Ridge Middle School who are tired of sitting back and being bystanders to the horrible things going on around the world, created a group called You MAD. They recognize that poverty and lack of education often is the cause of the horrible things going on around the world like modern slavery and genocide. These students decided that they could make a difference by helping to provide funds for children in Kenya to get food, clothing, an education, and a chance to learn a productive skill. A local business that hear about these kids and their desire to make a difference offered to match their funds raised dollar for dollar up to $10,000. Let’s make a difference in the lives of these orphans in Kenya and send them to school. We can also show the students at Elk Ridge Middle School that there are many people just like them who do not want to sit back and be bystanders. And remember, every penny counts!
