Under the direction of student council advisors Janeen Scott and Becky Davis, the Sage Creek Student Council declared a penny war to benefit those in our area who are suffering from blood cancers. Shortly after the fund raiser began, the devestaing earthquake in Hati occured and Sage Creek students immediently wanted to help. The student body elected to have half of the money generated from the penny war to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Foundation and half of what was raised to the organization Healing Hands for Hati. Over a three week period the students at Sage Creek raised over $1800, and on Wednesday checks for $940 each were presented to each charity. Ms. Katie Walthers from Healing Hands for Hati was there in person to accept the check, to describe the conditions of Hati and how the money would be used for the people there. Congratulations and many thanks to the students at Sage Creek who have shown by example how building a worldwide community begins.
