Planking ... for Planks!

17 October 2016
In April this year we went on holiday to Ecuador. We went to Quito, Amazon, Galapagos and the Cloud Forest. We met an entomologist called Nancy. She was really nice. We were in Quito airport about to go home when an earthquake struck. Everything shook, it was really scary, but  we got home fine.
 
When we got home we saw something about the earthquake and Nancy wrote that she was helping her friend Carlos to raise money. They were trying to raise money to build houses because of the earthquake. It was Carlos's village that  had been hit and all the houses were destroyed, they had no running water.
 
we thought of an idea to raise money it was called planks for planks. Planks for planks was basically where you planked for planks for a house. We decided to do it in upper school and it was teachers vs pupils. you paid a pound to plank. In total we raised around $900. enough for two houses and half playground. We are really happy that so many peoples lives have been changed for the better.
