What to do? I decided to send along ideas for “dream” live auction items and take the kids to their school instead. Well, I took Ali. Johnny had spring hockey tryouts. (A 6-week tryout-seriously?) There is ALWAYS something…
I think it's extremely important for children to help their communities, be it through their churches, schools or families. From an early age, if we can ingrain the importance of helping others around us, children will learn to think outside themselves and grown in to people of substance.
The art of braiding comes in handy for hair and dogs! My sweet Ali is going to help change the world!
And perhaps those benefiting THE MOST from all the work done this evening were the students themselves…including my favorite kindergartner. I will say one of my proudest moments was when Ali’s teacher said she is already keenly aware of the world and needs of others. Someday I am sure she will be part of the Peace Corp…and I will go with her ;)
Be the change!
Your Mrs. International
