The Purple Pinkie Project:
According to this article, “If students at four Ken-Ton elementary schools arrive home this week with bright purple fingers, they haven’t been playing in the art supplies, or eating grape ice pops. They’re been helping fight polio.”
Here’s how: “The project raises money for distribution of the polio vaccine in countries where the disease is still on the rise, by letting children who donate $1 paint their fingers purple in solidarity with children in those countries, where those who have been vaccinated get a purple mark on their little fingers.”
Have a GRAPE Day!
