Teacher Buys 650 Bicycles For Every Student In School
If you needed another reason to love and appreciate what teachers do for their students, here it is.
The AP reported that Katie Blomquist, a teacher at Pepperhill Elementary in South Carolina, had a student tell her they really wanted a bike. The child's family couldn't afford it, so Blomquist took it upon herself to raise money to get not just one bike, but 650 of them!
The report from the Associated Press says, Blomquist started the project just after Labor Day and raised more than $80,000!! Even Steve Harvey donated to the cause!
Teachers don't always have to go above and beyond for the well-being of their students, but so many of them do. Great Job Katie!!
