Hello to the Charity Group members and any other kids or adults who are checking this page out. Yes, it is true, this lovely little group started only with 2 little girls who wanted to do something to help others. They came up with the idea, wrote a little speech and convinced some of their other neighborhood friends to join the cause.
Our first outing was collecting garbage through Cattail Creek. And collect garbage they did... 4 bags worth in fact! Who knew collecting garbage could be so much fun. After doing that we do seem to notice everywhere we go if it is clean or dirty. I noticed behind the swimming pool is especially dirty while I was waiting for the kids' swimming lessons to be over - maybe we will have to do there next or write the staff a letter, so they think to clean it every week or so?
Now we are on to even bigger things and that is a cure for Cancer. We know we can't cure it, although right now that is what my daughter hopes to do when she is older... make cures for sick people. We hope to raise some money and provide some awareness about how to prevent Cancer. At our last meeting we decided to hold a Carnival of sorts. 3 coupons for $5 with all money going to charity. Right now we are making posters, planning puppet shows, buying water balloons, and baking goodies to sell. It should be fun.
We hope if you live in our neighborhood of Brodeur/Beaufort in Kanata, Ontario, Canada, that you will come to the carnival later in August. And we hope, if you don't live here that we inspire you to start your own charity group. Please comment if you start a group and share with us what you are doing.
