During all cross-over breaks between classes and lunch periods, “Baby” the hit song from Justin Bieber was blasted over the schools PA system and students were told it would not stop until the school’s goal of $500 was raised.
While this may border on torturous to some, it was a brilliant idea to get the students to donate. Even students who were Bieber fans were tiring of the endless chorus of “Baby, Baby, Baby..ohh!” after awhile. Other students claimed they were about to “go crazy”.
The high school is raising money for a great cause which is Crossover International Academy in Ghana. The money will go toward rebuilding the school, which was destroyed in a 2010 flood, and for food and supplies for the 254 orphans who attend the school.
The Bieber plan was a success as students raised over $900 dollars for the cause. Although it is yet to be determined if the students donated because of the charity or just to get the endless Bieber music to stop playing.
