The other day we noticed four young boys who were holding a fundraiser for a great cause. Liam, Asher, Kaden, and Cyrus made and sold cookies, along with other items, from a wagon at Jubilee Park.
Their little gang did this as a fundraiser for the Weyburn Humane Society, as a project for their science class at St. Michael School.
"We just thought it was the right thing to do," they shared. "We did it for a project for school and we did it like that."
"It was my dad's recipe and Kaden's grandma's recipe," Asher explained. "We also had brownies, chips, juice boxes, candy bags, suckers, and two different kinds of cookies. We walked around the park with a wagon with lots of stuff and sold stuff from our wagon, we had lots of people come to the stand, too."
The four boys were out there from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Liam even missed soccer in order to be there, even though he wasn't too upset about that. They made around 50 cookies altogether and had a few other items up for sale which left them with a pretty good number.
In all, they raised $235.
"We were raising money for the Humane Society because we want to help the shelter animals have a safe and healthy environment until they're in their forever homes."
The boys said this wasn't the only group of kids doing something amazing in class and making a difference in their community. Another group is doing something called Change Wars, collecting spare change in jars in their classrooms. Their goal is to help work toward making an accessible playground for children with different abilities.
