Every Little Bit Helps
There have been a lot of kind people who've donated time and money to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
I want to share a story about my kids Celine who turns 6 in two weeks and Little B who is 3. They were watching the news about the victims and said they wanted to help the people and wanted to give money.
I said the family was making a donation and daddy had it covered. But they insisted in making their own donation. They have dimes and quarters and pennies in their little piggy banks and they disappeared for a while and returned with a jar of money.
They wanted to donate so we counted their money and put $3.23 in an envelope and turned it in with the other family donation to the American Red Cross.
Now they feel as if they are helping. They are happy when they see people eating and drinking and they believe they are partly responsible.
Of course their little money won't go far. But I am happy to see my kids want to help others and I tell them that every little bit helps.
