Interesting fundraiser: Students pay school to stop playing Justin Beiber song

Justin_Bieber_mugshot,_front School Boards are always on the look out for interesting fund raising initiatives. Most schools opt for bake sales, silent auctions, chocolate bar sales and dance-a-thons. But not this Washington State High School. Administrators at Tenino High School decided to play Justin Beiber's 2010 hit "Baby" over the loudspeaker during the lunch break and in between classes. Students were told the only way to make it stop would be if they collectively raised $500 for a school in Ghana. Proceeds would be donated to the high school's sister school, Crossover International Academy, which provides education for orphaned children in the African nation. "We decided that playing one song over and over would be more annoying to really get stuck in their head" said student government president, Connor Stakelin. "We considered in motivation to get them to donate" It definitely worked. They raised more than $1,000...far exceeding their goal. "I think we'll definitely do it again." Stakelin said. What do you think of this fundraising initiative?
