Compassionate kids in rural Tulare raise $143,000 for Valley Children’s Hospital

Kelly Tyler’s next sacrifice in the name of helping children: Duct taping herself to a wall for cash.

“I may not be happy, but I’m going to do it with a – smile on my face?” Tyler says to a roomful of giggling children.

This stunt – selling pieces of duct tape to temporarily entrap Tyler on a wall – is just the latest quirky fundraiser dreamed up by her middle school leadership class at Sundale Elementary School to support Valley Children’s Hospital. (The Fresno Bee)
