One Proud Mama

Sometimes, I don't think I give Corrina the credit she deserves.  Aside from being a most frustrating child, she really is a most amazing child.

This month, she will turn 8.  EIGHT!

A couple nights ago, she told me that she wants to do more to help other people.  OK.  I almost suggested that she could start with the laundry or the dishes.  Instead, I suggested ways she could help people who really need it.  She loves to read and is amazing at it.  She decided that she wanted to raise money for kids who need books. 

For her birthday this year, she has asked her friends to make a donation to First Book instead of giving her a gift.  She has set her goal at $100.

First Book is an organization that provides new, age appropriate books to children in need.  If you're interested in learning more about First Book, you can read about it here.

Interested in helping Corrina reach her goal?  You can find her fundraising profile here.  Even if you can't give, go ahead and sign her guest book, wish her luck or happy birthday.  She is so excited about this.  I couldn't be more proud of her!
