Verdigris Sixth-Grader Presents Check From T-Shirt Sales To Red Cross
CLAREMORE, Oklahoma - There have been a lot of fundraising efforts to help tornado victims in Oklahoma in the past few weeks.
We've reported on many of them, but we don't always have a chance to show you the pay-off.
Holly Morgan, 11, brought a pretty big check to the Claremore office of the American Red Cross Wednesday.
It was the proceeds from her t-shirt fundraiser for the Moore tornado victims.
A couple of weeks ago, we met Holly and her mom in the family's t-shirt shop in Verdigris. Holly had sketched a design for a fundraising t-shirt. She and her mom transferred the sketch to the computer and produced the finished design.
Holly promised to send the proceeds to the Red Cross. They sold a bunch to people all over the country. Even a Jenks gymnastics team is going to wear the shirts on a trip to Florida.
So, 300-some-odd t-shirts later, Holly had $1,620 for the Red Cross.
"It's really cool, it's awesome," Holly said.
It is pretty awesome. The money will go into the fund specifically designated for the Moore tornado victims.
This isn't her first effort at Red Cross fundraising. She's acted in a couple of Claremore's murder mystery plays.
"I played a little girl and a girl scout," Holly said.
Check presenting, she discovered Wednesday, isn't as easy as it looks.
It's not too late for you to help Oklahoma storm victims. Just text "Tornado" to 32333 to make a $10 donation.
