Good things come in small packages, and eight-year-old Kaela is certainly a treasure. Kaela heard about Giving Children Hope from her mom, who recently volunteered at Giving Children Hope’s warehouse with her co-workers from Equity Residential.
This Christmas, a family friend was hosting a LulaRoe party, a company that sells leggings, dresses, and more. Kaela had the bright idea to use this as her platform to give back to children in need. For three days Kaela baked up a storm, concocting delicious treats including apple pie cookies, chocolates, and other goodies to sell at the party. She also gave a raffle ticket to each attendee who brought a new toy to donate and ended up collecting 57 presents! Her bake sale was such a success that she collected $275 and chose to donate both the money and all the gifts to the children we serve at Giving Children Hope!
When asked what inspired her to host this bake sale/toy drive extravaganza, Kaela shared, “I feel bad there are kids that don’t have what I have.”
Giving Children Hope is thankful for the reminder that no matter how small a person is, they can make a HUGE impact!
