A group of Dexter High School students are hoping to help eradicate poverty during Airplane Day on Feb. 28.
Airplane Day is an annual event hosted by the Dexter High School ONE Club to celebrate the life of Laurence Carolin and further his vision of ending poverty. Carolin, a Dexter teen, died from brain cancer but not before donating his Make-A-Wish Foundation money to the United Nations.
At the fifth annual event, attendees will be able to make an impact in the fight against poverty through purchasing fair trade products, signing petitions, making phone calls to Congress and winning ONE Club T-shirts.
Airplane Day 2015 will be held at 6 p.m. Feb 28 at Foggy Bottom Coffee House in Dexter. More information can found at the event’s Facebook page here. This year’s proceeds will go toward the United Nations’ campaign, The Global Alliance for Clean Cook Stoves.
