Since I won't be home to celebrate Earth Day at my school, I arranged to have a bake sale in advance of April 22.
On April 15, I held a bake sale at my school with all proceeds going to AfriOceans Conservation Alliance. I had help from some amazing friends in my Grade 5 class. Together, we sold cookies, cupcakes, licorice, pencils, Rainbow Loom jewelry and dolls and raised over $400! I'm so excited about the success of this event.
It is just another reminder of what can happen when you have an idea and share it with friends who support and believe in you and things that are important to you.
Most people know how much I care about protecting our oceans and the animals that live in it. With the education we share during the bake sale and all other times too, I feel every little thing we do makes a difference.
I love talking to people about the positive changes we can make and I'm always so happy for any and all support.
Our planet is so beautiful. We need to protect it and I'm so grateful that so many people understand that they can make a difference even by just making one small positive change each day.
