Imagine a world in which you could go back in time and hear directly from 100 of the world's most prominent people from the past. All you'd have to do to hear a 2-minute microcosm of their life is donate a mere 25 cents.
Well, that was the case recently as a talented group of Aurora 7th graders gave a hundred deceased celebrities new life.
Jeremy Dubas is a 7th grade teacher and one of the event organizers, "Basically they're going to come in, they're going to be wax figures in a museum, they're going to have their heads pointed down. And as soon as someone puts the minimum donation of a quarter into their container they're going to watch the past come alive, they're going to give their performance, their speech and once their speech is done they'll put their head back down and be a wax figure once again."
The entire town of Aurora has a lot to be a proud of because this year approximately 500 visitors joined together to donate nearly $3,000 to charity.
That means, over the past 6 years, a very impressive $12,000 has been donated to a variety of charities. So not only did the young Huskies learn some important lessons in history, they learned how to give to those less fortunate as well.
