Day 235: Two Kids, One Lemonade Stand, One Well in Sudan. What Did Your Kids do This Weekend?
Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs on our planet. We make decisions every day that we sometimes question. Are we feeding them the right food? Am I sending them to the right school? Am I teaching them things that will make them grow into a good person. I met two Mom’s, two kids and a school that is teaching their kids just that – to care, to support and to give. Could we ask anything more than that of our children? This is how one well in Sudan came to be.
Day 235: Give 235
Watch this video featuring to young students and their lemonade stand. Then read this is a letter I received in my inbox two days ago. You decide if you can just stand back and do nothing or if you will step up and support a school of children trying to make a difference.Hello Friends, I wish to share with you the journey that my darling boy Kai is taking with a small group of committed, compassionate children. The students of Cypress Park Primary (in West Vancouver, BC) are on a mission to build a water well in Sudan. They are coming up with all sorts of creative ways to raise funds. Their goal is to raise $8000 to create safe drinking water in a village in Sudan. Kai and his buddy Jeremy are selling lemonade this Saturday in Dundarave village from 12-2pm.
If you are in the hood, please come enjoy a glass of lemonade by donation!If you would like to contribute further to the children’s efforts, please visit:www.obakkifoundation.org
