-Ripple Kids Taking the Challenge-
Kaylee, 11, from California is helping animals. She and her Girl Scout Troop (95) made fleece blankets for people who are sick, and used the scraps to make dog toys which they sold to raise money for The Joyful Foundation to buy more fleece!
from California raised money for a local animal shelter by coming up with the campaign 'lemonade or the money you made'. Kids could buy lemonade or Otter Pops during school, or donate money they earned!Learn More
Cause: The Hungry
Project: Hold a Bake Sale
Hunger is a problem year 'round, and summer is often the slowest time of year for donations to homeless shelters and organizations that help feed the hungry. Here are a couple of ideas - one we borrowed from last month but it's such a great cause it deserves a second shout out!
One in 5 kids struggles with hunger. Hold a bake sale to support Share Our Strength's 'No Kid Hungry' campaign, a national effort to end childhood hunger in this country. You can even register your bake sale on their web site so other people can find you and help you out! Learn More
Ripple Kids Tip: rather than pricing the items individually, simply ask for a donation in any amount. You'll find you'll make more money, and it simplifies the process! Make sure people know about the cause you're supporting!
