We have returned from Belarus but there are still a few things to report so there will be another blog or two over the next week. This past spring while we were in Belarus I reported on the purchase of books for the Chausy Orphanage through a program we call “Reading for Excellence“. Back here in Canada two young girls read this blog and decided that they wanted to help, so they started their own “Reading for Excellence” program, they rounded up sponsors, read books and between the two of them raised over $150! Here is a picture of Kathryn and Emily the two 11 year old grade 5 students:
Here are 3 appreciative children from the Chausy Orphanage looking at the girls picture on my cell phone:
Children helping children … this is what really makes the world a better place!
i love to read and to see others, especially when kids help kids.
Great work girls!
