Erinne Paisley of Reynolds Secondary in Victoria B.C. made her own grad dress out of paper (her old math homework) and donated the money she would have spent on a dress to the Malala Foundation. Her dress sported the slogan "I've received my education, not every woman has that right. Malala.org"
Now Erinne has set up a page where she is auctioning off the original dress to raise further funds (and awareness) for Malala's cause.
Malala Yousafzai was just 15 when members of the Taliban shot her in the head because of her campaign for girls' right to education. She survived the attack in Pakistan, and became the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
