Blog Post 4: My First After-School Club Meeting

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!

Love,

Sophie
