At the Plant Nursery

We went to a nursery to get some new trees and plants for our yard today. 

There were lots of taller pots that were blown down from the wind so we picked them up and set them back where they belong.

$25 Charity Hoops of Hope

Hoops of Hope is a charity that was started by a 13 year old boy named Austin . He raised money by having kids come to shoot basketball hoops .

He raised enough money to build a school and and then a medical center for the Zambians. The Zambians were very happy when Austin changed their lives. They had never seen someone so young.

Hoops of Hope can change the world. It's neat that a boy that young can raise that much money by kids having fun and shooting hoops.

$25 Charity The Care Bags Foundation

What Charity

The Care Bags Foundation

Helping disadvantaged children.

Why We Like It

I like it because Annie puts things like toothbrushes books and blankets in fabric bags and gives them to poor kids all over the U.S. She gets donations of things from lots of people and organizations and companies.

Annie started her foundation ten years ago when she was eleven years old and saw that their were kids in bad situations who didn't have many things of their own.

$25 Charity Little Red Wagon

This is the first of our $25 a Week Charities.

What Charity

Little Red Wagon Foundation

Why We Like It

It was started by a kid, Zach, who is our age (8) to help kids who are homeless.

He does fun things like walking across America to teach more people about homeless kids in America, and to raise money to help kids.

He collected things from other people and gave them to other poor people. He got three truck loads of stuff . He gets things kids need and puts it in backpacks and then gives the backpacks away to kids in different towns.
It's pretty neat.

We gave a twenty five dollar donation to a charity that we liked. Some of the money was ours and some was mom's. We want to choose a different one each week.


Because we always look up different charities to get ideas of what we can do to help others and then we thought it would be neat to give money to some of our favorites.

Amount of Time

1-2 hours

Fun Factor

4 stars. Because we like searching online to look for stuff to do and seeing neat stuff.
