ASIA North Poplar students raise funds to help less fortunate

Grade 2 and 3 class inspired by YouTube video

Watching YouTube videos can melt hours away with endless political rants, music videos, juggling otters and other mindless clips. But the online video service can also bring inspiration to children to make the world a better place.

A Grade 2/Grade 3 split class at Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts North Poplar watched a YouTube channel devoted showcasing “kids making a difference by giving back,” wrote Vanessa Fleury, a mother who volunteers at the school.

The students rallied together to raise more than $1,500 in food, clothing and toys to give to six families with a total of 17 kids.

“I am so proud and blessed to know these kids and their amazing teacher Mrs.Brock,” Fleury wrote.
