Students donating to charity

Students often considered as part of the “what’s in it for me” generation continue to show signs of generosity while participating in the uBoost student recognition program. Many of the students who receive award points for incremental academic progress are donating their hard-earned points to fight hunger, prevent animal cruelty, and protect the environment, instead of redeeming their points for gift cards and iPods.

In 2009, students donated their points to:

· Sponsor impoverished children in Mali for 300 days through World Vision

· Reduce their carbon footprint for 61,950 days

· Helped The Nature Conservancy preserve 83,000 square feet of the Amazon rainforest

· Plant 26,950 food seeds

· Provide 3,250 days of clean drinking water to families without access through Charity Global

· House abandoned and abused dogs and puppies awaiting ASPCA adoption for 833 days
