Students at a Washington high school raised more money than expected, more quickly than they'd planned, when they blasted Justin Bieber almost continuously during class and lunch and pledged to stop only when their classmates donated $500.

The fundraiser began Monday morning at Tenino High School, about 120 km southwest of Seattle, KING 5 News reported. Those involved in the scheme figured they would torture the school with repeated spins of Bieber's hit Baby until they raised $500, which is going to a school in Ghana, Africa, which helps 254 orphans.

Some students were bothered by the repetition. Others just wanted to go home.

"Oh my God, my head is about to explode right now," student Zack Chamberlain told the news channel on Monday.

"I'm pretty sure I've had five Ibuprofen already."

The make-it-stop approach worked: By first period on Tuesday the school had raised $915.64, the report said.
