2012 April ~ It Only Takes One :-)
My husband told me a great uplifting story from his work yesterday and I have to share it. His co-worker's daughter over the weekend decided she was going to have a lemonade stand which quickly turned into a bottled water stand since that is what was in her parent's garage...giggling. So back to the great part of the story. The little girl decided she was going to donate all her earnings of $11.65 to a Children's Program that is located within where her Dad and my hubby's work. The program is for kid's who have people in their family dealing with addiction. Word got around at his work what this little girl did and it turned into people suggesting matching what she donated and challenging others. Today I found out her donation started a snowball effect and it has accumulated to over $350.00 for the Children's Program and there is an anonymous donor who is going to match what ever is earned! To me this is more proof that it takes just one to take action and then others will follow. It doesn't matter how small you are, you have a voice and it matters and can make a difference.
UPDATE: She ended up earning over $500 for the Children's Program!!!
