Christie’s Donation Story

I was looking for a way to teach Isabella about generosity, a trait that doesn’t always come naturally to a four year old.  James directed me to Bridget who suggested collecting donations from Isabella’s preschool. I asked the school director if it was OK. She seemed excited about the idea. I also e-mailed all the parents at the school and told them that Isabella would be bringing in a “For One World” donation box for show and tell. My daughter and I decorated the box with pictures of some of the children in Ghana. When she brought the box to school, she and her teacher took out a map and showed the children where Ghana is. The box was filled with supplies that very first day. Additional bags of supplies continued to be brought in throughout the week. It’s been a great project that we are planning to do again.

How can you help?
