Baldwinsville St. Mary's Academy students want a playground.
They have been trying to raise the money needed to get this done. But then Baby Easton was born on born Aug. 23 with Epidermoysis Bullosa, a severely painful, incurable and rare genetic skin disease.
The heart wrenching stories about his condition got to the hearts of the teachers and the students.
They began a Baby Easton campaign for the month of October. Since Baby Easton's skin condition makes his skin as fragile as a butterfly, the students decided to sell paper butterflies for $1 to honor or remember someone important in their lives. All the money they collected would benefit Baby Easton's family.
“This little school in the heart of Baldwinsville raised more than $1,000,” said Renae Henderson, the proud principal at SMA. “No one has mentioned the money needed for the playground – not now. Baby Easton's cause is too important.”
