I think that's a good idea. They could even incorporate the kids more. Have a math marathon where the kids could get sponsors for how many questions they get through within a certain time.<quoted text>
Maybe the adults can organize a bigger fundraiser, but I bet it means a lot to him that his schoolmates are showing their support in such visible ways. I hope the teachers are taking pictures of the kids wearing hats with him or blowing bubbles.
The money is important, but that friendship and support is invaluable to both him and his parents.
Brain cancer sucks. My Aunt died of it not long before I started posting on Topix. It was a long couple of years and very hard on those of us who were close to her (I was at the hospital or nursing home every day - she had no kids and I only had 1 by the time she died, so I had more free time than I do now).
Have the kids do something in art and auction off the paintings/sculptures and the proceeds go to help.
There's plenty of stuff that could be done. Someone just has to get the ball rolling.
