Some kindergarteners at Johnson Elementary school are taking fundraising into their own hands. They're auctioning off four quilts they made online. The bids start at $100 and they have already sold one for $1,000. About 20 students helped make the quilts. They hope the money will help buy them a portable computer station because the school doesn't have enough space for a computer lab.

"It's really all about trying to bring in more money, supplemental money to enrich Johnson School," said parent organizer, Lisa Woolfork.

The quilts are on display at the Gordon Avenue library until the auction ends next week. You can view them online at www.isolditvirginia.com.
