‘Potato Pants’ – unique HSP fundraising idea
The Potato Pants Challenge
This uniquely HSP-inspired fundraising idea started in a school in Klosterneuburg, Austria. It grew out of a throwaway line by a mother to her daughter during a hike. See that story on this YouTube video.

How about staging a Potato Pants Challenge here in Australia? Who is up for that?
