Helping Others

By Alisa K. Rudnick, age 10

Every first Sunday of the month we have a kids' lecture at Green Gulch Farm where I live. After the lecture, the kids go to the garden, have tea and cookies and talk about the lecture. Sometimes we do special projects and tell Zenny stories.

I read in my weekly "Time for Kids" news review that the kids in Central America were hit by a huge hurricane and a twenty foot wall of mud came crashing down on their houses. The kids at Green Gulch decided to raise money to help them. We made wreaths and cookies to sell after the grown-up lectures on Sunday. We did this for six weeks. We made almost a thousand dollars. We sent the money to the American Red Cross. We were happy to make so much money to help people who needed it.
