But that's exactly what members of the Kappa Delta Sorority and Alpha Tao Omega Fraternity from NDSU are doing on the corner of University Drive and 12th Avenue in Fargo.

They're trying to raise 9-thousand dollars for the Nokomis Child Care Center from passers by. They're on the corner 24 hours a day, through Thursday. We checked on their fundraising early this morning.

MIKE HUSMANN - NDSU Freshman: “It's pretty dead but you know you always get those people that usually help you out. Late night people are a little more generous.”

Last year, the two groups raised 7 thousand dollars with the same event.
