Let age stop them?
Read how these kids impact the world.
1. Cool Kid, Railey. Railey's grandparents are missionaries for a non-profit medical mission in Kijabe, Kenya. Recently, six-year-old Railey hosted a lemonade stand and toy sale. He began at 7:00 am and by 2:00 pm Riley only made $1.00, but do you think the lack of customers and the Georgia heat got this boy down? Nope. He was happy with the small amount he earned to send to his "friends" in Kenya. Disappointed you didn't drive by Railey's stand? Railey's aunt set-up a virtual lemonade stand to help her nephew and his "friends" in Kenya out. Buy a glass for $1.00 or click here for the full story.
2. Cool sisters, Delaney and Addie Kenney. On Make a Difference Day 2010, these sisters had an idea, a party with a purpose. What started out as forty young friends collaborating to support a local shelter for pregnant women turned into girls from all over the nation holding simultaneous almost-sleepover celebrations to make a difference in their communities. It's not too late to get involved. Click here for more info.
3. Cool sisters, Ruby and Amelia Sullivan (come on now, you know my kids are making the list). Inspired by those sweet Delaney girls, we are holding our own almost-sleepover on October 22, 2011. We attempted to include both sisters in this video, but it turned out to be Amelia discussing the almost-sleepover and Ruby singing "Mary Had a Little Lamb". So, here's just one Sullivan girl giving you the low down on the sleepoever and discussing the Flat Stanley activity that almost-sleepoever host girls are participating in.
*To clarify, our almost-sleepover is being held for the Rathbun Center in Asheville, NC.
