The dance cast of the Carnival Dream raised $1,914.84 in additional onboard funds toward helping the families of fellow crew members affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Long before the Typhoon had hit, during a bootcamp session, the cast had joked that by six months–the length of their contract–they would be able to do 1000 push ups for charity.
They gave playful idea serious attention after the Typhoon. They trained for six weeks to accomplish the feat of performing 100 push ups in an effort to raise funds for the tragedy.
