This touches me deeply — from Tipline

Tonight, @bethstill retweeted this story:

This small Nebraska high school had raised over $5000 for their Junior-Senior prom. But, they decided NOT to spend the money on the prom this year, but rather to donate it to the Haiti relief fund, instead. That just… it just really gets me. We all know what a big deal the prom is, right? Yet, this group is giving it up. AND, they don’t want anyone else to pay for their prom, either, as that would defeat the purpose. They’re giving up their prom for the Haiti relief efforts. Are you noticing a lump in your throat, now, too?

The next time you’re around someone who bashes teenagers, tell them this story. And there are so many more like this. I don’t know anyone in that school, but I’m so VERY proud of them. So very, VERY proud.
