Project - Kids Helping Kids - Haiti Jars

This layout is about a fundraiser my kids participated in at their school, to raise money for the Red Cross fund in Haiti. The fundraiser was initiated by the older kids in the school, but everyone participated. The idea behind it was that the kids would earn money for doing their chores, and then donate that money to Haiti. My kids were both very eager to participate. Molly would tell me in the morning, “Mommy, I put my nightly away for the kids in Haiti” (I think the concept of what had happened was over her head, but she wanted to help), while Rowan would clear the table, clean up clothes etc, but ask questions like “where are they sleeping? I'm worried that people are cold.” It was a good exercise. They raised about five or so dollars each, a small amount compared to what we had given as a family, but this was from them. It was a very good exercise in developing compassion.

Check out the QuicKutz blog this week for their fundraiser for Haiti. Basically they are auctioning off some their most popular and rarest dies this week in an effort to raise money for Haiti. I know I will be bidding!
