Maybe there’s a time in your life that you got “a case of the justa’s”…for example…I’m just a kid…or I’m just a mom…what difference can I make.
Saw this story about Rachel. She went to a meeting about Haiti…and found out that children there were so hungry that they ate cookies made of mud and so poor that they slept in houses made of cardboard.
After hearing that she didn’t just want to help, she HAD to help. She didn’t let all the other things she had to do, or any limitations in her life stop her from having bake sales, asking for donations at homecoming, and selling her own homemade potholders. She talked about it on her Facebook page and through word of mouth a cherry farm in Washington sent her their proceeds from a harvest.
In 3 years she collected more than $250,000 and has built 27 homes in Haiti.
Rachel is 12 years old. She started this when she was 9 after her mom, took her to the meeting.
You’re not just a kid…or just a mom…you’re a human being that can make a difference.
