Random School/Organization

Jones Middle School  Columbus, OH

The students and teachers at Jones Middle School saw the devestation after the earthquake in Haiti, and just had to do something about it!  They learned that many people lost limbs in the earthquake, and that Haiti was in dire need for crutches, walkers, and the like.  So the 6th graders got to work!  They collected over 200 pairs of crutches, plus walkers and canes.  And they raised the money to have them sent directly to the people who need them.  They came up with some really fun ways to raise awareness and money!  Their LIMB-o Fest featured games that involved crutches, and it was quite a hit!  Check out this article to read more about these great randomkids who solved real problems for their Haitian neighbors.

Red Alert Dogs for Diabetics

Started by a kid who felt really bad for his brother who has diabetes.  In just  a few short months after diagnosis, his brother had more than 3,000 shots and blood tests.  When Mark learned that dogs could be trained to detect dangerous low blood sugar he was excited because kids like dog a  whole lot more than shots.

Mark's project, Red Alert Dogs for Diabetics (named after his brother's dog Red), is helping kids all across the U.S. and Canada get service dogs.  Donating to Mark's project helps buy approved puppies, and pay for training, vet bills, dog food, and service dog vests, and has even helped pay for legal aid to ensure that children have the right to bring their service dog to school.

Zipper Pulls that are changing the world!

Designed by students at Crissey Elementary School in Holland, Ohio, these safari zipper pulls are changing the world for children undergoing chemotherapy as part of their cancer treatment. Each collectible zipper pull, made of acrylic, represents one of six character traits: Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Fairness, Citizenship and Trustworthiness. The zipper pull to pay particular attention to is the Zebra with spots instead of stripes, reminding us of the respect each of us need no matter how different we may look because of the medical issues we face. Proceeds from this project will go to fund ICEE machines-- carbonated, flavored slushy machines for pediatric cancer wards. The ICEE's soothe the tummy when experiencing nausea, and cool the mouth from the harsh effects of chemotherapy. $30 will fund ICEE's for 60 children.
