Librarian Challenges Grade Schoolers to Change the World with $5

 

Fox4KC – “At the end of the school year, students at Pleasant Lea Elementary in Lee’s Summit, Mo., received five dollars each with the instruction that they should try to change the world with it. The idea of going into the summer with five dollars and a mission to accomplish came from Beth Smith, the school librarian. She retired this year and wanted to leave the children with one final lesson. She raised $3,000 for the project and then distributed the money evenly to each student.”
