While some people want to shield their children from the tragedies of the world, I feel it is so important to let them know what is happening (in an age appropriate way), teach compassion, then empower them to make difference.
When we heard the heartbreaking news of the destruction in Japan, the girls immediately remembered the Hot Chocolate for Haiti stand & started wracking their brains for something they could sell that started with the letter “J”. Jelly, Jell-o, Juice! Juice! Princess decided she wanted to call it “Hope Juice”. In just two hours, with the generous support of friends, neighbors and strangers driving, biking and walking down the street, we made $102.15 to donate to the American Red Cross.
