Bringing Huang Jinmei to Jacksonville

Students' bake sale raises funds for Chinese girl
Upper elementary students at the Amelia Island Montessori School raised $520 to help bring a Chinese girl to America for lifesaving heart surgery. The students held a bake sale to raise the money, which was donated to Grace & Hope for Children, a Christian organization in China that is working to bring Huang Jinmei, 9, to Jacksonville.

"We are very grateful for the donation," said Jesse Duke of Fernandina Beach, one of the founders of the organization. "I'm really impressed that these kids would make this effort on her behalf."

Duke's daughter, Hannah, who was adopted from China, is a former student at the school.
