A couple of weeks ago, Macy announced she wanted to have a "fun"raiser to collect money for charity. She wanted to make cupcakes and sell them to our family. She then immediately started making posters of cupcakes.
A couple of days later the earthquake in Haiti hit. So when Macy brought up her fundraising project again, we knew what the fundraiser should be for. Macy was quite happy to raise money for Haiti and then we heard that her school was trying to raise enough money to buy a Shelter Box to send to Haiti. Perfect!
Today, Macy and Emmy [with help from Sean] made red velvet cupcakes. At Macy's request, the cupcakes had pale purple icing and a cherry on top. We then set out with fresh baked cupcakes to sell cupcakes to our families.
Thanks to our family for their generous donations. We haven't counted it all yet as we got bags full of coins. But the girls were pleased with the yogurt container full of money that they brought home. It was a very successful fun-raising project.
Have a great week.
