My 9-year-old found out about a little girl who needs to go to America to have a life-changing operation. My little girl asked the head teacher at school if she could have a stand at the school fair to sell loom bands. The head flat out refused so I went to the school and basically told the head I was disappointed that my 9-year-old can show more compassion and empathy towards a stranger then the school can! (The poor little girl’s brother attends the school).
Anyway, the head teacher arranged a sponsored walk for the kids to raise money for the little girl. They raised £1000! All off the back of my daughters. I’m very proud. – Stacey
