Highline High School AVID students are helping to raise awareness about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Somalia and the Congo by creating 2,500 “bones” out of newspaper and masking tape.

After hearing a presentation about the crisis, the students pledged to get involved in the “One Million Bone Challenge,” which will be part of a display on the National Mall in Washington, DC in June. The bones are meant to represent the commonality of all people and the strength of the human spirit.

AVID is a program to prepare students to be successful in college.

Highline High School AVID students participating in the project are:

  • Jakeline Franco
  • Alex Rodriquez-Marquez
  • Citlaly Ramirez
  • David Villegas
  • Michael Devos
  • Veronica Gonzales
  • Mia Alvarez
  • Ivonne Aguiniga
  • Jerry Lo

They have been assisted by Stephanie and Pauline from One-Million-Bones.

    Almost all of the AVID students were involved with this- close to 240 kids! It wasn’t just the kids in the picture! Jeff Bezos’ foundation is contributing $1 for each bone made towards the work of the non-profits and NGOs behind this project. It’s not just an art project!
