Kharkiv high-school grads cancel prom, choose to help sick kids

Graduates at one of Kharkiv`s high schools will not have a typical prom this year. Instead of spending money on a lavish party with fancy dresses and limos, the students will donate the funds to help children suffering from heart disease, according to Ukraine Today.
”The money doesn`t really come from the kids, it comes from the parents. That`s why we don`t just go to the kids directly but also talk to the parents and explain to them how important it is to donate to a good cause,” said Oleksandr Makohon, the school principal, Ukraine Today reported.
The grade 11 students are following a three-year tradition at their school. The principal there says it`s crucial for young people to understand that there are more important things in life than expensive clothes, Ukraine Today reports.
The graduates say they still plan to hold a small quiet party wearing regular clothes.
