Shout-out from the Author of Love, Ruby Valentine

  • ​​Laurie Friedman, the author of the book that inspired my project (Love, Ruby Valentine), was inspired by me and she posted a Valentine contest on her website! 

Helping Hands

  • ​All of the Kindergartners at my school and also the girls in my brownie troop helped stuff some goody bags -- so fun!
  • The youth group at Our Fathers Lutheran Church in Rockford was also a really big help with the goody bags.  I read the story to them and told them about my project. They decided that they wanted to also help raise money, and helped with the donations to Hope Lodge.
