Jojo Girard, Sarah Jacobs and Me
2nd and 3rd Graders at RFE - Such BIG hearts!
Sarah Jacobs, Jojo Girard and Me with the wagon full of dough!!
So yesterday was the culmination of our "Change Bandits" fund raiser for Hopkins Children's Center. We were honored to have the local DJ's from the station organizing the Change Bandits - Jojo and Sarah - come to the Assembly. They came in the middle of their day to be a part of our celebration.
Now anyone who knows me, knows that I'm a very behind the scenes person. I don't like the limelight very much at all. This whole project put me smack in the middle of it! Standing in front of the entire school body and speaking was uncomfortable for me. HOWEVER, for a cause like this and to brag on these amazing kids I did it willingly.
As of today, the kids have raised over $1100! Jojo and Sarah mentioned our school and me by name on the air today. I missed it darn it all.. but the thought was there.
I'm so blessed to be a part of this "family" at RFE and to have these kids as my "mission field".
