How Kids Can Help No Kid Hungry
Jun 22, 2012: My mom is always asking me to clean out my room and get rid of anything I don’t play with anymore. I realized I wasn’t using my American Girl dolls so I decided to sell my American girl dolls and make money for the Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. I told my mom my plan and she was really happy to hear that I wanted to do this so we took pictures of everything and went online to Craig’s list . We posted the pictures and some information about the items and said the price was $500 and all of the money would be going to Share Our Strength. Within a few hours we got a phone call and before we knew it, we had sold the entire collection to a little girl on Long Island whose mom was also really happy to be helping us raise money for No Kid Hungry.
