Isn’t it so great to see young people reaching out and making an effort to improve the world around them?

Three young ladies (8th grade)  from North Dakota are participating in an extra-circular in their school called FCCLA (Family Career and Community Leaders of America). Their project this year was to put a change jar in each classroom of their school to raise money for Blessing the Children. We just love seeing schools encouraging their students to make an impact on the world around them.

These ladies went a step further though, and decided to make teddy bears and cards for the children. Since most children in Ethiopia don’t have a single toy or stuffed animal, this was a very special treat. Check out the pictures below…..

Just look at those smiles!!
