My goal for this summer is to create opportunities for my children to recognize needs beyond their own selfish and entitled world. I have put together a group of moms to help me in this goal and together we are planning a Summer of Service. Each mom will plan one service project this summer. I was in charge of the first one of the year. We sold cotton candy and popcorn in our neighborhood and near Walmart to raise money for hygiene kits that will go to girls in developing countries with the organization Days for Girls. We raise $160 and the kids all had a wonderful time. In return for their efforts they not only have the good feeling of helping others, but they got a whole lot of cotton candy!!
