Here's how we're taking action in our community:
Im taking action in my community by helping kids that are sick with cancer more.time to spend wit their families and helping raise money so they have more time to be just a kid and not worry about being sick. St. Judes childrens hospital makes it possible for kids to receive cancer treatment for free and for families to stay with them and not pay a dime.
Here's how we got the idea:
My mom named me after St. JUDE. He was such a giving and kind person, and I want kids that are sick to only focus on getting better and families not to worry about money and just focus on their child. St. JUDES hospital treats only children for their cancer and focuses all day on them get well.
These are the steps we took:
My sister is great at making crafts, so I asked her to help me figure out some to make to sell so we can raise money for the hospital. My mom purchased Duct tape and pens and my sister came up with making duct tape flowers pens, bow tie pens, and suct tape mustache pens.
Here are some of the results:
Everyone that passed our booth loved to ask about the flower pens and how they were made and how the hospital helps children. It was nice to answer all the questions. I also learned more about give correct change out. My sister helped me and we sold over 20 pens!
These are the people who volunteered with me:
One of the coolest things that happened during my project was:
Getting to answer all the questions with my family helping.
One of the most important things I learned was:
