A Florida teacher leveraged her recent wedding to help struggling students prepare for the new school year.
“We got engaged on a trip to Belgium and immediately started thinking of wedding plans,” Kelli Cameron said.
Instead of wedding gifts, the couple asked for donations of backpacks and school supplies.
“Being a teacher, I know a lot of kids come with nothing to school,” the newlywed said. “And you see the kids so excited about the little things: a backpack, or new shoes. It’s so important that they can start school excited, and a lot of teachers spend their own money for their kids. This helped out a little bit.”
