Hot Cocoa for Haiti

by This is Carrie on January 20, 2010

We didn’t let the torrential downpour on Monday keep us from our MLK Day of Service plan.  Who doesn’t want a cup of cocoa on a cold, rainy day?

Thanks to supportive neighbors, fabulous friends, and a few “virtual cups of cocoa” sold, we were able to make $51 with our little stand to donate to Save the Children an organization that has exceptional ratings and also has offices in Port-au-Prince with 100 staff already working to relieve the suffering of the Haitian children.

What a great idea! The best part is that your are teaching your kids how easy it is to contribute and help those in need.

You are amazing! What a great way to teach your children about service. If I ever move to Cali, can we be friends? ;0)

Thanks for doing what you can for Haiti. I’m so inspired when I see children being educated about Dr. King and the importance of helping others. Good job Mom!

I’ve finally got a minute to sit and look at all the awesome new blog posts you have linked to from twitter. Does that say Cookies $100? WOW….I think I need glasses :) What a great thing you did! My Jacob has raised about 20 dollars (mostly at crayon-point) with his Chores for Change. :) His class of 12 has raised almost 200 total. They’re donating it to RedCross

I am impressed you had raincoats at the ready, in their sizes. We wear rain coats on a regular basis and both my girls need to go up a size right now.

Great job with the service project….totally awesome.

I just realized your posts don’t come to my reader anymore! Sad I missed this; on that rainy day I would have totally stopped by for some Hot Cocoa.

Thanks for not letting me down, by the way. I knew you’d do something. :)
