Helping Haiti



Anyone in the mood for brownies, sugar cookies and root beer was in luck today!

The kids recruited a couple of friends and set up a snack stand on the corner. We were lucky to have a warm(ish) day, so lots of people were out. When the sun started to go down, the kids broke down their stand and sold the rest door-to-door. At the end of the day, they had earned $20.60. Dad and I had agreed to double their earnings, so the kids will be sending $41.20 to Unicef tonight. They are proud of themselves, and we're proud of them, too.

That's awesome! What a way for kids to get involved, and contribute something real. :)

How wonderful!
I just love this idea, and will try to find a way to do something similar :-)

Our local HS group is having a community bake sale, too. We're hoping to raise big $$$$ this weekend.
