Waubun student raises more than $1,000 in tornado T-shirt fundraiser
Lindsey Adams, a senior at Waubun High School, had T-shirts made as an independent fundraiser for WDC Schools. She sold the T-shirts from mid-July to the end of September.
"There are 360 people in the communities of Waubun and Mahnomen who are wearing these T-shirts!" she said.
Lindsey also brought enough T-shirts for every senior class member at WDCHS. She would like the donation of $1037.70 to go to the WDC Library Fund. Lindsey traveled from Waubun on Friday and presented the senior class officers a T-shirt. Waubun is located in northwestern Minnesota, about 75 miles from Fargo.
On the front of the T-shirt, it says, "Support WDC High School 2010" and on the back, it bears an inspirational saying, which reads: "Anyone can give up. It's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart ... that's TRUE STRENGTH!"
