I See You: Teacher Wants Wedding Gifts That Will Help Homeless Students

Today's 'I See You' is out of West Jordan, Utah. A teacher and soon-to-be bride Rickee Stewart is getting married next month and has a special request of her wedding guests. 

Stewart learned that over 100 kids at her school, Copper Hills High School, were homeless. 

So she sent out wedding invitations with an insert offering guests the option, instead of gifts, to donate to her homeless student project.

The donations came in so quickly, her funding goal was met before she even mailed out all the invites.

 

A second insert card went into the invitations asking guests to donate to a Donors Choose fund that would provide coats and tents for students throughout the Jordan School District.

Donations are again coming in from New York, California, and even from people not on the guest list.

Full story on KSL here.
