Mascots helping Mascots

Mascots helping Mascots High schools across America have witnessed the devastation brought about by several recent natural disasters, such as Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. An outpouring of sympathy and concern, and a desire to help, have come forth from high schools wanting to assist those in need. To enable schools to help other schools, the National Federation of State High School Associations has initiated a fundraising program called the Mascot Adoption Program.

This is a fantastic idea; I'm frankly surprised it's never been done before. American cities do the "sister cities" thing, but it's largely ceremonial. I've understood that what other countries call "twinning" is more substantive and involves efforts like this. There's also a potential future in terms of the cultural exchange aspects.

I fear for schools like Kentwood, Mandeville, and St. Stans whose uniqueness in mascot likely will find them without sponsorship.
