Look What I Found...

Kewaskum School Fund Raisers
 
I found these in the grocery store in Kewaskum, Wisconsin (where my friend, Wendi lives). I was killing a little time waiting for a break in her work schedule, so I stopped in the grocery store to see about picking up some things we needed back at home.

As I walked in the front door of the store, there was a big board filled with cards like these with various leaves and acorns on them. They're made of clay, by school kids from the Kewaskum School District, and they're being sold to support the local community food bank. 

This is a brilliant idea to teach the act of giving to the kids, and it benefits people in need. Of course, I didn't hesitate to get the acorn magnet, created by Hoyt (grade 4), and the oak leaf pin, made by Osmaror (no grade given).

I'm going to make cards (using single images of each of these pins) to send back to the school to let these kids know how much I love what they're doing, and how wonderful I think their creations are. I know, if I had made them, I'd love the feedback. In fact, I may have to go back to get a few more to give as gifts!

Dear Donna,
The acorn is just beautiful. I can hardly believe you found them at the grocery store. What a serendipitous stop!
