Under the guidance of Mrs. Robin Siegel, a dedicated group of 2nd and 3rd graders at Barton Elementary School got together after school to raise money to help Saline get her surgery.
The children had the fantastic idea to sell bracelets throughout the school at $1 each. Engraved on each bracelet were the words “Kids Working for Kids.” I visited the school to talk about Saline and the Smile Rescue Fund for Kids. The children were very curious about the details of my missions and asked many questions. I asked them how they felt about participating in the project. The consensus was that it “felt good inside to help someone else.”
I couldn’t agree more.
We congratulate Mrs. Siegel and the students at Barton Elementary School and hope that this will be a model for other schools.
