    Duckie asked me if our Sunday School could do a fundraiser for the people of Haiti. We did fundraising each year when I taught that went to Episcopal Relief & Development, but we never specified where... just wherever it was needed most. So I talked to one of the current teachers and emailed our priest. Monetary donations will start to be collected this week and there will be a Sunday School sponsored bake sale on 1/24.

    It really doesn't seem like a lot in the face of such destruction but I am proud of my daughter for wanting to reach out and help.

    She is amazing! It is so cool to hear when our kids want to help out. For her to recognize that there is a way for her to help Haiti is so amazing.

    My difficult child's class sewed wheelchair bags for a local nursing home. A representative came to school yesterday to thank them and invite them to come help out whenever they want. difficult child asked if we could contact them and set up some ways that he could help.

    What is the most awesome is that growing up, he has always been uncomfortable visiting nursing homes. Some kids just can't handle being around fragile adults. Then, two years ago when his anxiety was in control, there would have been no way he could handle visits.

    Now, he wants to help. He mentioned even going up and watching a football game with the residents. So, I better get this lined up while we still do have games to watch.

    I told his "Make A Diffence" club leader that I want him to find ways around town to help people. He just found one on his own!
