Last week I participated in a yearly tradition here in Fresno. It's called Kid's Day and every year the local newspaper The Fresno Bee
gives away its newspaper for a suggested donation of $1 and gives all proceeds to the Central California Children's Hospital
What this day consists of throughout Fresno is different organizations and individuals get together and plant themselves at various intersections throughout the city. They hopefully have enough people for every corner and if they have enough they plant people at the medians too. This translates to a typical drive to work being asked at almost every single intersection if you would like to buy a newspaper to help raise money for the Children's hospital.
It can get a little much, especially if you've already purchased a paper at a previous corner, getting asked and called to throughout your commute. It is, however, great to see so many people getting together and raising money for such a good cause.

In University I participated a number of years with one of my organizations. This year I also helped out with a group from my Target store that was volunteering to sell the newspapers. Our store raised almost $500 dollars for the Children's hospital, and my share of that was about $80.
