My kids are rad.
They have giant hearts.
They love Jesus.
They want to learn about the world around them.
During VBS this week they also want to beat the boys in fundraising.
Do you blame them?
There was talk of a lemonade stand, which quickly turned into a cupcake stand.
They decided to give half of the sales to VBS which is raising money to purchase Memory Bags for Royal Family Kids Camps, and half to our friends from Hope For Sudan, who are mobilizing a massive feeding program.
We iced water bottles.
Halley made signs.
We gathered cute decorations for our table.
We talked about location, location, location (Our street has virtually no traffic. No traffic = no sales.)
Hungry teenagers cannot resist the cupcake slinging of little faces.
The cupcakes went like hotcakes. If hotcakes were cupcakes.
In one little evening, the girls raised way more money than they ever hoped.
Enough money for over a thousand meals in Sudan, and quite a few Memory Bags.
All because they wanted to bake cupcakes.
In this season we cannot give much financially.
We cannot go to Africa.
But we can bake cupcakes.
I can make some printables.
We can use our small things for the work of a very big God.
I love how Jess put it:
"We’re not all called to go to Africa.
But we’re all called to do something."
What is your something?
(100% of sales will be donated to Hope for Sudan.)
