Please Help Them Help! There Is A Picture To Click On At The Bottom : )

Hi everyone,

Today's post is about my daughter, Sarah, and her son, Davey.  Davey has followed in his mom's footsteps, and has a love of and desire to help people through volunteering. 

At nine years old, Davey has already done a lot of volunteering.  For example...
Ushering at the Steppingstone Theater in St. Paul, MN
Participated in the Feed My Starving Children program on two occasions.
Participated in Meals on Wheels three times.
Volunteered three days for the Breast Cancer Ride in 2012.
Training with his mom, Sarah, in 2011, for the  60 miles in three days, 3 Day for the Cure walk.  He walked at least 50 miles over the course of Sarah's training simply to support her.
He and his family mentor a child one + days a week.
He colors pictures through a site called Create A Smile and then sends them off so it might bring a smile to someone's face.
The most recent volunteer activity is the current one in which he and Sarah will be participating in a mission trip and spending a week at an Indian reservation in northern Minnesota. 
Please click on the picture below to see what this is all about and consider making a donation in support of Sarah and Davey. 

Davey is willing to work hard and do lots of things within his capabilities.  He even told Sarah he will gladly pick up dog poop in people's yards.  He has already been out chipping ice off someone's driveway.  Davey  is 9 years old.....his heart is big....and he just wants to help people....please help him help : )

When you click on the picture below it will take you to Sarah and Davey's page explaining everything and if you would be willing to consider making a donation, that would be so wonderful!

I am so proud of my family.  As my mom and dad would say...."All of them!"  For those of you who know me, you know there is a story in my last sentence.  For those of you who don't know me that well,  you will soon learn that I come to life with stories.  It is how I grew up. 

So, here is the story.

When my dad was young, he used to be a boxer.  Well, he won a match that was a pretty big match, but doggone, when people came up to his dad, my grandpa, to congratulate him on my dad's win, my grandpa said, "All my boy's are great.  They all do a good job!"

And, that is how I feel too.  I love all my family and they all do good things. 

On this occasion, Sarah and Davey, would love for you to visit their page so you can learn what this is all about.  Please click on the picture below and once again, if you can consider making a donation, big or small, it would be so wonderful!  Thanks : )  Love, Judy

Loved your blog. Your grandson is a remarkable little lad...a lot like his grandparents for sure.

Hi Judy...

Loved your story about how your grandpa thought all of his sons were remarkable. That attitude had to have shaped your dad, and in turn you, and in turn Sarah, and now Master Davey as well. It is always wonderful to be thought remarkable.

I thank you for keeping me updated a bit on Miss Sarah. I have missed our conversations. I find it coincidental that once again we have a shared interest...the Native American and how we can help them.
