There are times that I am overwhelmed by the children's example of how things should be done. The boys who do their eagle scout projects to benefit Starfish. I had one child clean out his piggy back and send me US$12. I have not brought myself to use it because it seems so wrong. It is still on the back of the door with the card. It is a daily reminder to me to the power of one to make a difference.
Anyway here is another example of how it can be done. Mac had his 7th birthday party and instead of presents, asked for donations for Faith, our baby with the port wine stain on her face. Here is the note I got from Mac's mom.
