TUCSON, Ariz. — Students at Khalsa Montessori School are donating nearly $3,000 to help wildlife in Australia.

The money was raised by the 4th-6th graders through the school's annual craft fair.

Initially the funds were set to go towards planting trees around the world, but in the wake of the Australia wildfires, the students decided to reallocate them New South Wales’ Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.

That organization is working to save unique wildlife impacted by the fires.

This year's craft fair set a new school record for the total amount of money raised.
