EHS Kansas Association of Youth (KAY) members raised $770 for breast cancer research during their Pink Night activities on October 12.
Students sold pink shirts to be worn at the last home football game on October 12, where they also accepted donations and sold items to raise money. They also sponsored a paper airplane contest that students could pay to participate in during the pep assembly.
KAY also raised $140 for the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) by trick-or-treating on October 26. Instead of hunting for candy, students donned costumes and went door-to-door asking for donations to support UNICEF. This annual fundraising tradition began in the 1950's and EHS KAY students continue to support the organization by participating in the event each year.
The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund was created by the United Nations General Assembly on December 11, 1946, to provide emergency food and healthcare to children in countries that had been devastated by World War II.
Today, the organization helps save and protect the world's most vulnerable children. It has been rated one of the best charities to donate to and 88.4% of every dollar spent goes directly to help children.
