A Dollar to Make A Difference

My kids were given a dollar with a challenge to make a difference with it. So they combined their dollar and had $2.00. Then they went around the house and collected loose change. They found my money-left-in-the-laundry stash, dug through drawers and couch cushions. With that they bought…

Two baby outfits. And with those two baby outfits they headed to a baby shower,

where their two outfits were added to other gifts—many of them handmade  or bought by kids. And each person’s one gift added up to many.

And these gifts will be used to stock a baby store for moms who might need a little help.

Two kids, two dollars, two outfits = made a difference.
