Teacher turns to social media to get Easter baskets for his students


With the help of a social media post and some generous strangers, a Florida teacher was able to give dozens of students a sweet Easter surprise. Fifth-grade teacher Brent Walker had wanted to do something special for his students, so he went to Walmart to buy plastic eggs for an Easter egg hunt. When he spotted premade Easter baskets for $10 he thought, “Man, I wish I had enough money to be able to buy one for my homeroom.” Walker posted on Facebook, asking his friends to sponsor a student and within an hour, he had $700 — mostly in $5 to $10 donations.
