Members of Wenatchee High School’s Interact Club have built a reputation for achieving extraordinary goals, so don’t bet against them in their quest to earn a guest appearance on the Ellen Degeneres show to try to make a global impact by improving access to clean water in Africa.

They are attempting to network with 100 schools from across the country to raise $1,000 each for the Ryan’s Well Foundation, a nonprofit inspired by the work of a 7-year-old boy. The foundation has helped build more than 800 water projects and more than 1,000 latrines since 2001.
