DUBUQUE, Iowa - A group of 7th grade students spent much of their time between and after classes posting messages to social media sites Thursday.

Every one of more than 1,300 tweets by students at Washington Middle School included the hashtag "Friends of Homacho." Homacho is a small village in Ethiopia where clean drinking water is scarce.

Many also mentioned the Twitter account of Ellen DeGeneres, whose 'selfie' picture taken during the Oscars become the most shared tweet of all time.

At one point, the "Friends of Homacho" hashtag was the second most popular trend in the US, and it came without help from the famous talk show host.
