When I found out that some of my friends at school would not be able to go to Andrews Academy next year, I really wanted to do something to help. I really didn’t know what I could do, after all, I’m only a kid. Later, Ruth and I got together and decided that we could start our own business to earn some extra money this summer. I don’t remember who thought of it, but somehow, we came up with the idea that we might be able to earn enough money to help our friends got to Andrews Academy next year. At the time, it was a crazy idea, I know! I mean, like how in the world could we earn $16,000 + by just selling eggs, mowing lawns, doing house work, babysitting, etc? As crazy as it was, we tried it.
I contacted Principal Overstreet at the Academy, and told him about or plan. Two weeks later, we were in his office, talking to him about our idea. He thought it was a wonderful idea, and supported us completely. Since then, our goal has become more realistic, as people have started to learn about us, and become interested in our idea.
Please pray that God will bless our efforts, and help us succeed!
