My parents asked me to think about asking for donations for a charity for my birthday instead of getting presents. Right away I thought about giving money to Guatemala because our church has been talking a lot about a school down there. I wanted to help out the school. I invited my basketball team to my party and told them that I did not want presents, but that they could donate money to a school in Guatemala. At my party, we did an obstacle course and my friends brought money to donate. My mom told my friends about the school and we raised $170. I am happy that I could help the school.
