How A Tik Tok Challenge Led to Giving Back
By, Nicoda Adams
A classroom in Northern California is making a big impact through a challenge to give back to the community. What began as a challenge from students to their teacher to gain attention of celebrities on Tik Tok has turned into a huge fundraiser for Shriners Hospitals for Children. After being challenged to get noticed by Jack Black, Tony Hawk, and others, Ms. Sutherd challenged her students to donate their in-class “tickets” to turn them into real money and donate them to Shriners! When Ms. Sutherd shared this challenge on Tik Tok, it inspired a fundraiser that has raised almost $30,000!
