CARY, N.C. — A Cary girl, inspired by images of destruction in Haiti after the recent earthquake, rallied her fellow students to donate more than $3,000 to the relief effort.

Kate Ammerman, 12, printed up a flier about the quake and the country and led a group of students who went classroom to classroom asking their friends for $10 donations.

Over three days, the Davis Drive Middle School effort raised $3,682 for the American Red Cross, designated for Haiti.

Ammerman's father delivered the money Monday to Sam Matheny, chairman of the Triangle Area Chapter of the Red Cross.
