In Greta Bell's words, "They told me they wanted 7 Sunflowers in the front to represent each one of them and their mentor Ms. Alholm, behind these flowers they wanted millions of sunflowers to represent all the people that will join in to clean up and make the world a better place. Lastly they wanted an image of the Pripyat Amusement Park (they chose the ferris wheel) that was to be opened for the first time on May 1, 1986, but on April 26, when the Chernobyl disaster occurred a few kilometers away it doomed the Park to never open. I believe the Ferris wheel is a symbol of hope and fun for all children who deserve a healthy planet. Their interest and willingness to help is a beautiful positive force in the world and a reminder that children are our future."
The students are hoping to raise $2,000 to help fund efforts to clean up Chernobyl.
