When I started my $20 Challenge, I had no idea it was going to impact the amount of people that it did. Not only did my students spend that first $420 on spreading kindness and helping others, but their video reflections encouraged others outside our classroom to join in on the challenge or donate their own money so that my future students could participate.
While I had not originally planned to publicly share about my $20 Challenge, I am happy at the coverage it has recently received because it has allowed the world to see how amazing my students are.
Below is a compilation of our story in the news. I am so excited that my students' voices get to be heard.
