For my Leadership project I went through a process that allowed me to donate Build-A-Bears to Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera, Agape Villages Foster Family Agency, and James Baldwin Academy a part of Seneca Family of Agencies in San Leandro. To raise money I made Rice Krispies Treats and sold them at Muirwood Park. After that I went door to door in my neighborhood to ask for donations. I also asked family and friends for donations. I raised almost $2,000 and donated about 140 bears. This experience has made me realize that these kids are real champions. They have fought through a lot throughout their lives. This is something that I will try to keep doing as my life goes on.
