You are always proud of your own kids. The moment that you realize that they are making decisions on their own, you can often feel nervous about the decisions that they are making. We have recently been extremely impressed with our kids and what they are doing. We showed them a video from our church where they are challenging people to spend a little less on ourselves this christmas and take that money to give it to those in need.
We shared this video (see it above) and they made their own decisions on where to send some of the money that would normally be spent on them. We were proud of them for their decisions, but they were not done yet. Our middle daughter set a goal to raise more money than just her Christmas money, but to pull in her friends. She has set the goal to raise $200 to give fresh, clean water to the Pokot people of Kenya.
She is collecting money from her friends who want to help, and when they do, she gives them some duct tape bracelets that she made. It is truly awesome to see people rally around her. Her teacher gave her money today and her principle said that she would be helping out too. And of course, her family is jumping on board, but I’d like to ask you all to help her get to her goal. On the right side of this blog you can see a widget that will give you the chance to give. If you can that is awesome, but if you can’t it isn’t a big deal but I always carry the mentality of “you never know unless you ask”.
Here is the widget as well!
