DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – The kindergarten class at Grey Stone School is raising money to help the rain forests of Costa Rica.

The children learned about the animals and plants in the rain forests and they also learned about how rain forests are threatened.

They decided they wanted to do something to help and decided to support a program called “Kids Saving the Rain Forests” that was started by two 9-year-old girls in Costa Rica.

The kids used money raised at a bake sale Friday and money they earned doing chores. They have raised more than $150 and now will choose how they want to use the money to help the rain forests .That could include planting trees, rescuing an animal or maintaining monkey bridges.
