A Little Money Goes a Long Way


Written by Plant With Purpose on March 28, 2013 in General

Talk about inspirational! The children at Mt. Soledad Presbyterian Church—a long-time partner of Plant With Purpose—engaged in a heated competition this month to raise funds for Plant With Purpose’s communities in need. 

“The kids are overflowing with joy to give the $50 they raised to Plant With Purpose,” says MSPC’s Children’s Director, Sarah Johnson. The girls of Mt. Soledad’s children’s program exceeded their fundraising goal (though the boys weren’t trailing too far behind) and thus had first pick of where their hard-earned dollars would go.

With help from Plant With Purpose, Ms. Johnson presented a breakdown of how the kids could distribute their funds: $10 for a clutch of chicks, $20 for a pair of bunnies, $30 for a fuel-efficient stove, $50 for a family garden, or $10 for an orchard of trees. 

Excited and full of spirit, the girls (and the boys) collaboratively decided to spread the grand total towards purchasing a clutch of chicks, a fuel-efficient stove, and an orchard of trees.

We at Plant With Purpose could not be more thrilled to bring hope to families in need with MSPC’s gifts of hope, just in time for Easter! May the energy and passion of Mt. Soledad Presbyterian Church’s children be an inspiration to us all during this Easter season.
