Pepperhill Elementary teacher wants all her students to have a bike
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) —
Pick up those phones and get ready to tweet. A Pepperhill Elementary teacher wants to buy a bike for all 650 students at her school.
Katie Blomquist started a GoFundMe account and Wednesday received a $10,000 check.
But she tells us she still needs more help.
"I kind of envision that Oprah day where I can say everyone gets a bike and the kids are all screaming," she said.
Retailer T-J Maxx was so impressed with Blomquist's goal that they started a Twitter campaign. For every tweet or retweet of Blomquist's story, they will donate one dollar up to $5,000.
