(CBS) Schools across the country are pitching in to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
While there are lemonade stands and bake sales from Connecticut to California, some schools are finding more creative vehicles.
Delone Catholic High School in McSherrystown, Pa., has a fun fundraising program called "Stop the Bop."
Suggested by a few members of the student council, the school is playing Hanson’s 1996 hit "MMMBop" through the loudspeakers before classes begin, between periods and during lunch. The idea? Annoy students into donating; have them pay to stop the music. [Source]
Wow what a great idea for Church fund raising. I would gladly pay through the nose to have hymns from Haugen, Haas, Shutte, and the St. Louis Jesuits stopped in mid hymn when I am occasionally afflicted by them at some Catholic churches. ‘The next selection is Ashes, the bidding to stop it will start at $100.’ Though I guess it would be imprudent to go bankrupt over hymns.
