Long story short, I volunteer at a center for low-income families. Well, 2 weeks ago, a girl at my church asked if, in lieu of gifts, she could request her 25 Sweet 16 party guests to donate supplies for the kids' art classes at the center. How kind and selfless is she?!!!!!
So, I, in return, asked her if I could make her birthday cake. They wanted to pay, at least for ingredients, but I said no. Well, I dropped it off at her house yesterday, and this morning, her mom told me that they had made a $100 donation to our church in my honor!!!!!
That, on top of all of the wonderful art supplies that the partygoers gave, will have me smiling all week!
