Two girls in my neighborhood read about Eliza O'Neill, a little girl suffering from a big disease. They decided to go proactive and sell lemonade to raise funds for Eliza.
They enlisted their friends. They made flyers and walked up and down the block with their mother to distribute them.
Today, Sunday, I can hear the children outside as I type. John and I went out to get our lemonade and found the kids chanting, flagging down cars and passers-by, and enjoying every gleeful moment of their altruism. Their parents didn't tell them to do this, although there's a lot of parental support of this event. You can bet the kids learned charity at home.
You can go to Eliza's gofundme website and help. Or help someone else. If not for their sake, then for your own.
Being nice is good for everyone. Plus, it's fun.
