Every fall, the student government at Eastside High School in Taylors, SC changes the world. They vet dozens of applications from charitable organizations, select a beneficiary and start planning, organizing, motivating, and inspiring those around them to act.
In 2015, With Purpose was the beneficiary and we watched a community, inspired by high school students, come together and raise more than $125,000 in one week. The students worked around-the-clock executing more than 50 fundraisers and having a blast in the process. Participating in Spirit Week was a life-changing, life-affirming experience.
