Solana Beach students used the latest craze for a good cause last week.
To help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Skyline Elementary School students sold Rainbow Loom bracelets during an after-school fundraiser Dec. 10.
“It’s really exciting when they have ownership,” said teacher Tiffany Farnsworth. Her third- and fourth-grade combination class organized the sale.
“They understand the need and they’re able to actually do something — in this case, by creating Rainbow Looms for others.”
More than 6,000 people were killed in the Nov. 8 super typhoon, and nearly 1,800 people are still missing.
