Students at a Minnesota elementary school are getting an A+ in compassion this year after raising over $600,000 to make their playground wheelchair-accessible and more inclusive.

The project was started by Betsy Julien, a fifth and sixth grade teacher at Glen Lake Elementary School. She noticed the school's current playground isn't equipped for all children. The school has about eight students who currently use wheelchairs, said Julien, who also has a child of her own who uses a wheelchair.

  1. I’m not crying!
    You’re crying!
    I was just cutting onions and my eyes are sweating 🥲

  2. The world is heading into a depression due to the economic destruction of the pandemic, I’m so happy that even with the current situation I’m still earning €17,400 with my original €3,000 stock. Venturing into equities would be best to recover from this global inflation and stay afloat.

    1. I don’t know who needs to hear this! Stop depending on the government and give out loans. For sure, crypto investment is a safer way to earn more money now, as I have recently earned €132,000…

    2. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

    3. After watching so many YouTube videos about trading was still making looses until a friend referred me to Anthony Robinson trading service.$34,500 weekly. God bless Mr Anthony. He have been a blessing to me and my family
