Kiss a horse, students raise money for Japan

Posted:

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) - Rib Mountain Elementary students help those hard hit by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Students bought tickets for 50-cents a piece to vote for a staff member to kiss farm animals.

The teachers with the most tickets puckered up and fulfilled the promise of kissing a horse and chicken.

Mackenzie Maas/Rib Mountain Elementary 5th Grader: "We were surprised by how much we raised, $661, to go to the American Red Cross for this project."

The big idea for puckering up came from the Star Citizens in the 4th and 5th grades.

The group does community service projects.
