Haiti Fundraising Update From My Little Girl
As I mentioned in my last post, my six year-old daughter saw television coverage of the devastation in Haiti, and of her own volition, decided to do something to raise money. With a small assist from mom and dad, we came up with the idea of putting together packages of chocolate and asking people if they would like to make a donation in exchange for a bag of assorted chocolates.
Well, we are not even done yet, but after we canvassed the neighborhood, my compassionate and determined little machine raked in $173.00 in donations — last night alone. We’re expecting another $50 or so in people we missed.
Two hundred and some dollars might not seem like a lot considering what others are doing, but to me, my daughter has raised a million dollars, raised my awareness of what has happened and filled my heart with joy.
P.S.- If you feel like a heartless crumb bum after reading this and know how to find me, well, find me. How can you possibly say “no” to that little face in the picture?
