NDSU students selling bracelets to benefit friends killed in car crash

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Some students at NDSU are selling bracelets to help the families of the 4 students who lost their lives in a car accident last month.

Some students at NDSU are selling bracelets to help the families of the 4 students who lost their lives in a car accident last month.

These students are looking to sell 1,100 bracelets, and the people buying the bracelets aren't only paying the full amount, but more.

Jake Grossman - Creator: “We have got a lot of extra donations, one girl she said, she gave $100 bill and she got three bracelets.”

Jake Grossman and his classmate Morgan Lubben came up with the design.They also came up with the idea to split all profits made between the families of each girl for funeral cost.

This simple but meaningful design has the initials of each girl and the date the tragic accident took place. The four freshmen were heading home from the cities when their car lost control near Alexandria.

Jake Grossman: “They will always be remembered in our hearts, but it is to help alleviate the cost for the funerals, it was kind of a personal thing for me to, because I lost a classmate of mine in high school to a car accident, and it is really close to home.”

Each bracelet is being sold for three dollars, a small price to pay to help a family that has lost so much.

The students also designed T-shirts for purchase.
