Giving Tuesday: Week 4

Last week on our Facebook page, we asked the question, "besides crafting for Craft 4 Change, in what ways do you give back?"...no reply.  Bummer. 

THIS week...we are featuring another young person that we think is doing an awesome job of giving back.  Let us introduce:

Justine Wood

of Modesto, California.  Oh, and she is only ten years old!  She was looking for ways to volunteer for a school project, when she contacted the Society for Handicapped Children and Adults.  She helped out with a bowling event but wanted to do more.  Then, she heard about the Special Needs Ball.  So, she set out to collect 30 or so prom-type dresses for this fancy event (and boys suits too)...collecting over 45 and counting!  Now, she is trying to raise money to help fund this very special event and we have no doubt that she will do just that. 

You can read all about it in the Modesto Bee's article on her service to others.  And, if you feel like helping her out, you can contact the SFHCAA's Facebook page.

Great job Justine!
