If you read my parenting columns or my blog regularly you likely know that my oldest son, Joshua, has a big heart. He seeks to be righteous and to make things righteous and with a heart of passion and compassion. As soon as he heard that our city, Detroit, was broke he took it upon himself to pray that the City would have the money it needed to operate. He decided he wanted to go beyond his prayers and have a refreshment sale with proceeds going to the City. Please support him in his efforts this week July 30-August 3, 2012. He will be selling refreshments outside our from 5-8 p.m. If you live in the Detroit area, contact me for more details. If you can’t make it during those hours or live outside of Detroit, I’m sure Joshua would appreciate a monetary donation to help make his effort a success. Following are his words that appear on the attached flyer:
My name is Joshua Smith. I’m 9 years old. I wanted to raise money for the City because we’re broke and I felt like I wanted to do that. It came on my mind. May you please help support the City of Detroit. Please buy this popcorn and drinks. It’s not so expensive. I didn’t make it expensive so you would have to spend all your money. The money will help clean up trash on the ground and cut the grass in the parks.
Thank you in advance for your support.
