Students Painting Fingers For Polio Fundraiser
Students at Eisenhower High School in Yakima are painting pinkies this week to raise money for Polio research and awareness.
It's part of a campaign put on by the school's Interact Club.
For at least a one dollar donation, club members will paint your pinky purple -- this is the same method used by volunteers in other countries to show that children have received a Polio vaccine.
So far, the campaign has raised over $5,400 dollars in donations.
"I'm really-really thankful for our community," said senior Bianca Villa, "It just comes to show how great the community is for contributing to these kind of illnesses that aren't only here, but is around the world."
The fundraiser runs from now until Sunday, students will set up a booth at the Valley Mall this weekend.
