Pembroke College students sell bracelets to raise money for Ukraine.

On a recent school day, two fifth grade students from North Pembroke Elementary School visited all 27 classes with scarcely any pauses in between.

They utilised a slide display to help the older pupils understand the continuing fight. They created videos with visuals for younger grades to keep them interested while educating them about compassion and giving back.

Madeline Rejewski and Violet Carson, both 11 years old, passionately discussed what is going on in Ukraine to pupils from kindergarten to grade six.

Madeline and Violet raised about $2,100 in two weeks by selling $3 bracelets at school and donated the proceeds to the Save the Children Foundation, which helps children their age in Ukraine.

The foundation will use the money donated to provide blankets, food and shelter for children in Ukraine.

“The universe is the limit,” Madeline said. “Not the sky.”

Before the April break, the girls heard about the war on the news.

“I felt awful,” Madeline said. “So we felt like doing something about it.”

Under the suggestion of their parents, they decided to raise money for the nonprofit. When the girls brought a small presentation and their plan with them to the school, even their teachers were surprised. ‘We felt like doing something about it’: Pembroke students raise money for Ukraine
