Nepal library fundraiser reaches its goal of $2,000 in ten days

After a series of large earthquakes in Nepal and North India struck, Todd Jones, World History and AP Government teacher, and his students set up a fundraiser with Ten Friends, a non-profit organization, to build a library in a small village in Nepal. With the $2,000 raised, the library will be built in the name of Cooper Hill and Antonio Caballero, juniors, who died in a tragic car accident Feb. 21.

In just ten days, 76 people donated the total amount needed and now that the money has been raised, Ten Friends will begin construction on the library. The purpose is to promote education in the recently devastated area where multiple earthquakes and aftershocks caused destruction and thousands of deaths and even more injuries.
