Guam - Over 300 John F. Kennedy High School students kicked off the first ever Circle of Life Fundraiser.

During lunch today, students paid $1 to participate in the biggest game of musical chairs the island has ever seen.

Fun and games aside, JFK senior Jon Villegaz says his school is merely doing their part to help the millions affected by Supertyphoon Yolanda. "I'd love to see more of these activities. Get everyone together. It was fun," he said.

According to event coordinator JFK teacher Angelo Andres, today's school collection raised close to $650, bringing their total donation amount to over $2,800.
