Members of Liberty High School's Global Action and Awareness organization are telling their fellow classmates, ''Don't Be Shady, Help Haiti.''
Members of the group have been working to address local and global issues for three years. Each year, the group works on a particular cause and this year, the cause is to help the victims of the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti earlier this month.
By taking time from their busy days to sell T-shirts to their fellow students, the Global Action and Awareness committee will be donating all of the proceeds to the American Red Cross for distribution where needed in Haiti.
Liberty High School students with Global Action and Awareness are selling T-shirts to aid earthquake victims in Haiti. Pictured from left are seniors: Allison Armeni, Lydia Holden, Catie McKelvey, Tamara Chevlen and Andrew Grinstein.
''Two years ago, we raised $15,000 for Darfur,'' said Catie McKelvey, a member of the group since its inception. There are approximately 30 student members.
Last year, the organization focused on global warming.
T-shirts sell for $10 each and can be purchased through any member of the organization or from the high school.
The group, originating three years ago on the suggestion of a student, is advised by teacher Deborah Ries.
