Today was a great day! The sun was shining and thanks to Ms. Winter, I was able to hold my first ever after-school club meeting with my classmates at Summit Cove Elementary. I was so surprised and thankful that so many of friends and even some kids I had never met before showed up and wanted to help support the effortsof Heaven Sent It. Everyone that came received a journal so that they can draft their own letters to organizations and to the families we reach out to.
I couldn't believe how much we were able to get so much accomplished in one short hour. We selected a name for our group, Heavenly Helpers. Next we worked together to think of new ideas for getting additional support for Heaven Sent It. And we tripled the number of packages I normally send in a week, in just one hour!
I can't wait to see how many children we are able to reach and where my organization goes from here now that we have so many people chipping in to make a difference. And, I can't lie, I'm pretty excited to spend time with my friends working together for a good cause. Hopefully, I'll make some new friends as well along the way.
Thanks again to everyone that came to support my cause. It really means the world to me!
