A teacher in Seattle recently raised over $20,000 so he could purchase a Seattle Seahawks jersey for every student at his elementary school.
Kevin Zelko is a teacher at Kimball Elementary in Seattle and thanks to his fundraising campaign every student at his school will receive a Seahawks jersey.
Zelko works as a beer vendor at Seahawks games and came up with the idea during the teams win over New Orleans.
According to an interview from For the Win, Zelko had a good day and decided to set the excess money aside so he could purchase jerseys for a handful of students. From there friends began to chip in funds and eventually a GoFundMe was set up.
Zelko summed the plan up and stated the importance of everyone being involved:
The ability to keep everybody included in something that the entire city is talking about is really powerful. The smiles on their faces when they get a Seahawks jersey will be very impressive and many of the kids will remember this for the rest of their lives.
