Hopscotching for Hurricane Help

Two Oregon girls are hopscotching their way to hurricane relief.

"We have a goal of at least a thousand dollars or more, and if we don't raise that much, it's fine, but we just want to help those people down there," says eight-year-olds Caitlin Frank and Marisa Motiff.

Caitlin and Marisa started drawing hopscotch squares on the sidewalk, and after three hours, they had a thousand of them.

Caitlin's dad suggested they take pledges to hop, and then donate the money to the Red Cross for victims of Hurricane Katrina. So far, they've raised more than $800, and have some neighborhood friends helping them with the hopping.

If you want to donate, just head over to South Perry Parkway. They should be easy to find.
