In Washington State, an eighth-grade class canceled its class trip. Students decided to donate the money to victims of the tsunami in South Asia. In Georgia, a 14-year-old raised $400 selling her baked goods. Students in a Pennsylvania school that requires uniforms, held a Dress Down Day, charging $1 to wear street clothes for one day. A group of middle-school students in New Jersey marched through their lunchroom with donation buckets.
