Helping kids help Haiti
Fundraiser: Hold a bake sale, set up a lemonade stand, or sell homemade chocolate cookies at your school. Put together a neighborhood yard sale, used book sale, or car wash to generate funds. Even setting up a simple donation box at school or a parent's workplace can help raise quite a bit of money.
Learn more: The more kids know, the more they will be able to empathize with their global neighbors in Haiti and understand the devastation caused there by recent earthquakes. For little kids, you can play Haitian music, read a folktale, or learn some geography. Older students might want to check out this New York Times website that shows satellite photos from Port-au-Prince before and after the Jan. 12 earthquake.
