EDWARDS – Fourth-grade teachers Jackie Flyr and Tracy Barber had their students at Brush Creek Elementary School write for donations for the tsunami victims. Here’s what they wrote:- On Dec. 26, an enormous disaster happened. A tsunami hit! Already 290,000 people lost their lives and five million people need our help. Did you know the tsunami was only 20 feet high but destroyed homes, stores and families and also pulled people away? Please donate money to “Tsunami Cents.” It’s at Brush Creek Elementary. I hope you donate anything, from a penny to a dollar. P.S. They need us. – Joe Frasco- The worst disaster in history happened at exactly 9 a.m., Dec. 26. The tsunami was only 20 feet high, but killed more than 290,000 people. The tsunami hit Southern Asia. Some native tribes and animals felt the earthquake happen. The tsunami didn’t just destroy lives, but it also destroyed homes, stores and families. Brush Creek Elementary is finding as many ways as possible to raise money. We are going to send the money to “Quarters From Kids.” They will send the money to the 12 countries. We would like you to donate money. More than five million people need your help. – Celine Williams- On Dec. 26, the biggest tragedy in history hit and affected lots of people. The tsunami victims lost everything they had, some people even lost their family. Over 290,000 people died and about five million people need our help. Brush Creek Elementary School is having a fund-raiser called “Tsunami Cents” for the tsunami victims. Please help the Tsunami victims. – Madison Bartock- A giant tragedy happened just a few weeks ago in Southeast Asia, on Dec. 26. It was a tsunami. This horrible disaster occurred when two underwater plates rubbed together to cause an underwater earthquake. Soon this earthquake started a large wave which became the tsunami. This tsunami, amazingly, was only 20 feet high, but stole the lives of over 290,000 people. The students of Brush Creek Elementary School will soon start fund raising for the five million people who still need our help. Brush Creek students will help by doing a fundraiser called “Tsunami Cents”. Please Help.

– Frances Galgan- 290,000 people have lost their lives. The tsunami was 20 feet high. The people who survived will need food, water, shelter and medicine. One third of the people that died were children. That is almost 100,000. It was the day after Christmas. It might take 20 years before it gets better. I will be 29 years old. The fund-raiser is called “Tsunami Cents.” We need your help. – Hayden Floyd- On Dec. 26, the biggest tragedy in written history struck. 290,000 people lost their lives because of the tsunami. An earthquake started the whole thing. The plates under the sea rubbed together and started the disaster. The wave killed a huge number of people but was only 20 feet high. Our plan is to get money for the victims so they can get food, homes and medicine. We hope no more people die. If you have kids in Brush Creek Elementary School, tell them to donate money for the five million people who need us. Our school’s choice for the fund-raiser’s name is “Tsunami Cents.” Please help us raise money. They need us. – Sam Boyd- On Dec. 26, the biggest disaster happened in the Indian Ocean, a tsunami. Almost 300,000 people lost their lives and one-third of them were kids. It all started when a 9.2 earthquake struck under water. Waves 20 feet high started pounding the shore. That is why we need your help, fund raising for tsunami victims. You can help by going to Brush Creek Elementary and donating money to “Tsunami Cents.” – Zeke Sandoval- On Dec. 26, a lot of things got destroyed. It was after Christmas. Maybe you don’t know the story but it was really sad, because 290,000 people lost their lives and five million people need our help. Did you know that elephants saved some people? The people who ran were safer than the people who ran to their houses and locked the door. So please donate to “Tsunami Cents.” – Abby Torres

– On Dec. 26, in Southern Asia, a tsunami 20 feet high crashed and destroyed a lot of homes. The people who ran were actually safer than the people who went to their houses. The tsunami was one of the biggest tragedies in written history. We are going to collect money so we can help the tsunami victims. – Tessy Holguin- The tsunami killed over 290,000. Before people knew the tsunami was coming it was already over their heads. People who ran away were safer than people who locked themselves inside and some people got saved by elephants. The tsunami swept out 12 countries. This is why Brush Creek Elementary wants your help. We are doing something called “tsunami Cents.” We would like you to help us by donating money. – Scott Steggall- Did you know that the tsunami happened the day after Christmas? About 290,000 people lost their lives and about five million people need your help. Are you willing to help the tsunami victims? They would thank you very much. I think it is a tragic thing to happen. Did you know that the tsunami was 20 feet high? Also, elephants saved people because they felt the earthquake under their feet. The Brush Creek Elementary students are doing the fund-raiser for the tsunami victims. The fund-raiser is called “Tsunami Cents.” P.S. Every penny counts. – Kyana Bailey- On Dec. 26, the biggest disaster in written natural history happened. A tsunami hit southern Asia, with 20-foot waves that were caused by a 9.2 underwater earthquake. Elephants helped save people because they felt it coming under their enormous feet. This horrible disaster destroyed houses, people, buildings and even families. The kids at Brush Creek Elementary knew they needed help so we decided to do a fund-raiser called “Tsunami Cents.” This is where people who want to donate money can. They will need money for at least 20 years. If we don’t give them money now they might need it for thirty or more years. – Justine Bukovich- On Dec. 26, a tsunami occurred. It was caused by an earthquake underwater. More than 290,000 people died and five million were left in need. The waves were about 20 feet high. At Brush Creek Elementary School, we felt we needed to help when we heard this horrible news. So we decided to do a fund-raiser for the tsunami victims. Our fund-raiser is called “Tsunami Cents.” At school, kids put quarters, dollars, or more in jars that they will find in their classrooms. We would be more than happy if you could support our fund-raiser and donate some money.
