Texomans have a reputation of helping those in need from benefits to fundraisers, it seems people are constantly cashing out for a cause.
And for one group of MSU students their need to help has them thinking "out of the box."
The Kappa Sigma fraternity at MSU has dedicated this weekend to raise funds for their chapter philanthropy, the Fisher House Foundation and their doing it in quite a unique way.
"Look at it! Donate come on."
On the corner of Taft and Hamilton you'll find a group of boys begging for bills.
They're part of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity at MSU participating in their 30th annual Box-a-thon.
"Originally we donated to homeless people and that's where the whole boxes came from, living in and getting donations but then last year we decided to switch to donating to fisher house foundation, which helps wounded veterans and their families because it's our national philanthropy," said Daniel Basham, a Kappa Sigma member.
Last year this philanthropic fraternity raised around 3 thousand dollars, not bad for crashing on a corner for 48 hours.
And while it's truly a site to see, it has some passer-by's confused.
"A lot of people driving by some people don't think we are really doing this, some think we are veterans, and some people get offended but we are trying to do something good," said one of the Kappa Sigma pledges, Jaron Judd.
And that good takes a lot of hard work.
"Long hours, not much sleep, really cold, but ya know it was fun having the guys around just being ridiculous and crazy," Judd said.
Crazy enough to spend a weekend on the streets grabbing cash for a cause.
Now originally the fraternity planned to hold their Box-a-thon last weekend but even with the slight delay- They tell me their weekend of fund raising was quite the success.
