The Fruits of Labor are on the way to Haiti

Several months ago a group of students from three different schools scattered across the Twin City area came together to bag groceries on an afternoon for the kids and people of Haiti.  Most had never done this before and most had probably not worked all day at something for which they wouldn't receive any compensation.  All nine of them worked hard, laughed and felt good about what they had accomplished.  For they had raised over $700 and this money was used to buy over 40 pairs of leather  church/school shoes, backpacks, socks and playground shorts.  At the end of the day, they walked away with empty pockets but with full hearts.  One of the kids will be able to see the reaction of the Haitian kids when they receive these items and I hope that he will be able to express to his fellow baggers the gratitude and joy that will be shown on the day that they are delivered to those orphanage kids in Haiti.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.      Anne Frank
