Rachel Trotter is a fourth-grade student at Foothills Elementary. She read a book about Ruby Bridges and decided she wanted to learn more about Ruby. Rachel discovered that Ruby Bridges had started a foundation and wanted to donate some money to the foundation. Rachel wrote a letter to Ruby Bridges letting her know how much she liked her story and wanted to help the foundation by sending $50. A couple of months later Rachel received a package in the mail. Ruby Bridges had sent Rachel a package that contained a letter and a book. The book was signed by Ruby Bridges along with a picture of what Ruby looks like today.  Ruby also sent the $50 back to Rachel and told her to keep it and if she needed it she would let her know. Rachel said she would keep the book forever!
