The Final Part

KP and Snos organised Lee Welch from Red Cross to come and talk to our class and pick up the money we raised. She told us about some of the history of the organisation as well as what Red Cross does around the world. 100% of the money donated to Red Cross goes to help people in places around the world where natural disasters or conflict occur.
