Lily Raises $135 for the Giant Pandas

Lilly is a very gifted and bright little girl.  Lilly is one of those children that wants to make a difference in the world.  While Lilly and I were brainstorming what special project she could work on this year, the first thing she said was, “Well, I do really love pandas!”  I immediately told her that I had heard of an organization called “Pennies for Pandas”.  We went to the computer and found the website.  Lilly was so excited when I told her we could create a “Pennies for Pandas” collection jar.  That night Lilly created the sign for the container and the next day told the class about her project and her passion for pandas.  Her goal was to raise $50.00 so that she could receive a panda t-shirt.  With the help of her classmates and a great faculty and staff at our school, Lilly exceeded her goal and raised $135.00!  We are all so proud of Lilly and what she has accomplished at such a young age!!
