Winter is here, and many folks love to make snow angels in the great outdoors. But what if those angels were created for a good cause.

Well that is what the Duluth Rotary Club and the Proctor High School DECA are doing on Saturday morning at the University of Minnesota-Duluth's Malosky Stadium.

Crystal Taylor of the Duluth Rotary Club and T.J. Lind of Proctor DECA stopped by Good Morning Northland Tuesday to talk about the "Make Your Mark: Angels for a Cause" event.

Taylor said the money donated at the event will go toward the Global Team for Local Initiatives, an organization that supports the indigenous people in Ethiopia affected by climate change.

Back in May 2012, Lind said a DECA group he was involved with took second place working a project raising money for the Global Team for Local Initiatives. The students were drawn to the project because of a video they saw, Lind said.

To be one of the 9,000 people needed to break the world record, head to Malosky Stadium on the UMD campus starting at 9:30 a.m. Snow angels will be made starting at 11 a.m.
