Chandler Clark traveled more than 8,000 miles in July to Africa and went to south Sudan to help build a water well.
Clean water is essential but the people in that developing nation don't have access to a water system or clean water. A water well helps build a community, eases tribal tension and can lead to schools and of course better health.
What Chandler experienced was so impactful she wanted her schoolmates at Colleyville Heritage High School to think about changing Homecoming tradition.
Instead of buying mums that cost $200 to $1,000, she's selling a $20 t-shirt. The front shows the continent of Africa and reads "Hopecoming". The back of the t-shirt reads " I sent my mum to Africa".
Friday is Homecoming and Chandler will see lots of those t-shirts. She's sold 350 of them and that means Colleyville Heritage will be able to buy one water well for the people of south Sudan.
If you're like to buy a t-shirt or get more information about this nonprofit log on to http://waterisbasic.donorpages.com/grapevinecolleyvilleisd/gcisd.
