About a week ago, my daughter hosted a cookie swap for the holidays. We decided that she could ask everyone attending to simply bring in the spare change they had in their purses to donate to this same cause. Some of the ladies donated cash and others brought in quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies which we deposited into empty water bottles. In years past we have used the swap as a time to raise funds for other worthy causes and we've never been disappointed. With many folks feeling the pressure of our current economy, we thought everyone would be able to come up with a handful of change. We also hoped to make others aware of this beautiful organization and the great work it is doing.
Today I had the pleasure of counting and rolling all the change with the help of my two grandchildren. It was really fun to see how excited they were to help and also to discover how much they'd collected individually as well as the amount collected at the cookie swap. I am happy to report that through our small individual effort of collecting pennies and the change donated by a small group of women we have very close to one hundred dollars. I am so pumped to be able to write a check to Charity Water for this amount of money this Christmas.
