Hebron Academy pottery students raised $1,200 for tsunami relief efforts by crafting and selling ceramic bowls.

One hundred percent of the proceeds went to the villages of Tamil Nadu, the southern-most state of India. Half will go to a children’s fund that is creating a community center for emotional healing, while the other half will buy nets for fishermen. The donation went through the Family Care Foundation, which allows donors to specify where they want their money to go.

With the help of teacher Ms. Jeanine Eschenbach, pottery students sold bowls filled with ice cream at Hebron’s production of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat.” Parents and others also called with orders for bowls. There was such an overwhelming response, the bowls quickly sold out and students are still filling orders.

All of the pottery students participated in the fund raiser, donating both time and skill. Some students made as many as twenty bowls, while others spent a lot of time glazing the bowls. Ms. Eschenbach organized the project.
