Iowa students send cards to bombing victims
UNDATED (WHDH) -- A group of elementary school students in Iowa used their art skills to send letters of love to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
Card after card, students had plenty of words of encouragement.
"Dear Boston, Get well soon, we wish the best for you. I hope you feel better, thanks," one student said.
Mary fisher, 11, came up with the idea to make the homemade cards.
As it usually goes in grade school, mary then got all of her friends involved.
"I told Aubrey and then she kind of spread it around all of the girls in our class and they all made cards," Fisher said.
The girls developed a big goal: to make 100 cards.
They worked on their project during their free time at school. Fifth grade teacher Michelle Bessman watched their progress.
"I think it's a good way for them to express how they feel about it and their support for the victims and I'm very proud of them for thinking of that idea on their own," Bessman said.
The girls are excited to get the cards in the mail, hoping this project is one way they can make a difference after the tragedy.
