Thank you Leslie! From the mouths of babes, purely unscripted. They are very capable and eager to do for others. I can imagine the impact we would have if every grade level, every child school-wide took on a worthy cause!

Your students' pitch video is so thoughtful.... I enjoyed hearing them think about how others would feel receiving their gifts and how they might incorporate that into their adult lives. Thanks for sharing!
