Motherlode has a post about ways to explain the Haiti situation to kids and ways that kids and families have helped. As it turns out, Geeky Girl came home yesterday excited about a bake sale she and her friends are organizing to benefit Haiti. I think it’s a fabulous idea, even if I’ll have to spend time Saturday baking something. They’re planning to station themselves at a busy but easily stopped at intersection in the neighborhood across from the school (the area is completely residential; lemonade stands and other things pop up here all the time). All the money will be sent to an organization to benefit Haiti. Should be an interesting enterprise.
