On Saturday, my friends and I did something awesome! We raised $191.11. All of the money goes to Haiti. Wow! We had a garage sale with only a few people helping. We also asked people to donate their bottles and cans. I can't belive that we had only ten people come. We did pretty good.
We have decided after looking at all the organizations to choose the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. We wanted the Red Cross at first but we wanted all of the money to go to Haiti. But we still think that the Red Cross is a good organization.
Last night my mom and I read a timeline about the history of Haiti. It was cool but a complicated history. They have had many tragedies over the past hundreds of years. I am glad to be helping them.
My friends Sophie, Emily and I have been friends ever since our first year of preschool. We decided to do this together because we like being together and we really do want to support Haiti. We decided to do the porch sale to spend time together and to help Haiti (of course). We made a cheer. It went:
Give Me A
H - A - I - T - I
And then my friend Emily did a push-up hand stand while me and Sophie yelled "Haiti." It made me feel good although people rolled their eyes at us. We knew we were helping Haiti.
