I chose to celebrate my 8th birthday with 100 at a Hundred because I heard that a girl at my church did that. Then I said “I want to do that too!” In February my dad had gone on a trip to the school in Guatemala. He had sent us lots of pictures of the children at the school and now I was very excited to help the school with my birthday money.
My friends said, “What do you want for your birthday?” I told them that instead of presents I wanted money for a school in Guatemala. And they said “Really?!?!” and I said “Yes!”
At my birthday party we played lots of games. One of the games was pin the school on the map of Guatemala. We also talked about helping the school and that giving money can change a lot in their lives.
At church the Sunday after my party, I hurried to my mom because she had all the money. I quickly got the money, went to Kat, and gave her the money. She counted it and said “Wow! You reached the goal!!” I felt so happy!!! Altogether we raised $155.00!!
