Random Door Knock Leads to Student's Fundraising Boon

Posted: Updated:

A local seventh grader was already raising money for his eighth grade trip when he happened to knock on the right door.

Login Blunt's 8th grade trip to Washington, D.C. and New York will cost $3,000 so he started mowing lawns and washing cars.

Luck came Login's way when he knocked on a certain woman's door who first regretfully said she didn't have the money, but then offered him tickets to the Reno-Tahoe Open.

As part of the U.S. Bank Chip In program, Login can sell tickets to the RTO and keep all the cash.

"I didn't think I was able to do it but I was gonna try, did some lawns when I went to the right house now I have this priviledge," says Login.

"I've been doing this for 20 years. Never had a 7th grader raise money for 8th grade trip. I think it's remarkable; he's got the maturity," says Mendive Middle School Principal Scott Grange. 

Sounds like Login will make it to D.C. next year with the rest of the Mendive Middle schoolers.

The RTO is not until the end of July so he will spend this summer raising the more than $2,000 he still needs.
