Election Day Craft

Week 3 of working with the young ladies of the weekend girl’s program, and I am so impressed by how talented these children are!
I planned an exciting Election Day themed treat…Cake in a jar! Because what can be better than angel food cake and patriotic cream? I also designed American flag tags which included a poem (written by an amazing coworker) describing what we learned about elections. The tags were tied on to the sealed jars with lovely red, white, and blue ribbon. I am so proud of the girls and how beautiful these cakes turned out!
Hope you all had yourselves a mighty fine Election Day!

Hurricane Sandy Volunteer and Fundraising

When people go through hardships, they really do appreciate when you’re standing by their side. Support means so much to people in need. Some individuals might not say “thank you” or realize how much effort you put into being there for them, but that shouldn’t discourage you from continuing to give to those around you. You are changing lives when you put others before you. Whether it’s charity or just telling someone you’re there for them – we have the power to make a positive impact on others.
I went shopping with a friend for candy and stickers today, and we traveled to a shelter in hopes of reaching out to at least one family. But it was more than that. Groups of people excitedly greeted us and graciously accepted the small gifts. I can’t even imagine what these people are going through right now, but something as small as lollipops made their day. The children lined up excitedly to receive stickers and thoughtfully requested extra stickers to share with their siblings or cousins who were staying in the shelter with them. Even the adults laughed as I walked around with Spiderman stickers on my face, and I stuck some on them, too.
This month, I will help create and distribute care packages to victims. As most of you know, I have opened commissions to help raise money to create the packages. 100% of the proceeds go toward this cause, and we have already raised $125!
It warms my heart how many of you reached out without hesitation to help the Northeast get back on its feet.
Let’s change the world together (one region at a time)!
(My fancy orange volunteer vest and lots of rolls of stickers!)
