Not only is Scholastic donating the books, but each student is also getting around $20 to go book shopping! When students buy books from Scholastic, the school gets "bonus points" that they can trade in for supplies. Since they have already been given so much, the students and principal decide to pay it forward once again. They use the bonus to buy portable DVD players for children in the cancer ward at New Jersey's Hackensack Hospital.
