Day 4 of Service was done by my sister Natalie (and her husband, Steve, even helped out too)! As you may recall, Steve's mother passed away less than a week ago. I told Natalie that she was not at all obligated to do a day of service, given their situation. (Shouldn't I be doing service for them right now?!) But she insisted that she still wanted to. The following is the email she sent me about her day-
A fundraiser guy from smartraiser.com came to my door asking for donations for the Care Package Campaign http://wn.com/Troop_Care_Pkg . I donated to it just because it went towards my day of charity for your 31 days of charity. ( I am actually very worried now that it was a scam.)I donated some clothes to the Boys and Girls Club.While my family was in deep sadness, Steve's coworkers generously organized several nights of dinners for us. They also helped me with my babysitting needs. These people went above and beyond with showing their love and concern for our family. I thanked them today by baking a cookie sheet full of homemade cinnamon rolls. Good karma all around.
If anyone else is interested in doing a day, just look at the sidebar and pick a day. Leave a comment below telling me which day you want to do!
Thank you Natalie and Steve!
