World of Inquiry 8th graders are raising money for their class trip through social media.

They plan to go to Washington, D.C. in the spring, but funding is a challenge. Some of the students are poor and they've never traveled outside of the city. Teacher Gabrielle Graves said she prefers to ask for money directly, because sales drives often take a big cut.
