Frequently kids from around the country contact Angel Covers about how they can help others. Donations of clothing, vitamins, school supplies, blankets, and many other items have been sent to us from children trying to make a difference. More than $400 was recently sent by a school after they held a bake sale to raise money for Angel Cottage. Each of the children who worked on this fund raiser will have his or her name on a brick at Angel Cottage.
Another great example of a generous child helping orphans was seen this week. Melanie is a 5 year old little girl who was adopted from China when she was 10 months old. Rather than asking for toys for her birthday, Melanie asked her friends to donate towards baby bouncers. Because of her selflessness, two more bouncers will be purchased and given to orphans in China. Melanie put aside her own wants and asked that needy children be helped instead.
We can all learn from Melanie's example and the example of children around the world. Are you willing to follow their lead?
