Long-time credit union and development organizer Carol Schillios recently raised roughly $92,000 for her work in Africa- by spending 113 nights on the roof of a building in Edmonds, Wash., according to The Seattle Times.

The building houses Fabric of Life, a shop where Schillios sells the woven goods made by students at a school for homeless girls in Mali that Schillios supports. Schillios, 57, originally vowed to live in a tent on the roof of her shop in downtown Edmonds until one million people had donated $1 each to her Schillios Development Foundation, a nonprofit foundation from which Schillios takes no money and has only volunteers, the Times reported.
