"Breezley's Love" hopes to raise $1,000
ANCHORAGE – Walk into a number of businesses in Palmer and you’re bound to find a jug with black-and-white cutouts featuring an Indian orphanage.
It’s part of the campaign by Pioneer Peak Elementary third-grader Breezley Snow.
The 9-year-old came up with the idea with the help of her teacher Gretchen Diemer. Together with the help of teachers, Snow is planning to raise money for an orphanage in India. Snow says she was inspired by a teacher’s aide raised in the orphanage.
Diemer said the project has taught Snow, a special needs student, about a variety of topics including basic math, counting money, public speaking, social skills and — most of all — teamwork.
In the past two weeks “Breezley’s Love” has raised $350.
