All for a Good Cause



Ingrid is a very sweet and caring child. Her love for others runs very deep, and she has great concern for the enviroment. She is absolutely devastated whenever someone litters. She cries, and says that people are "killing the polar bears." She has even convinced me to use reuseable bags at the market. She has made it her mission to save the polar bears.

She began saving capri sun pouches two months ago. She shared this with her teacher, and Ingrid was featured in the school newsletter, that she was saving the polar bears. Her classmates have decided to help and she has collected over 200 pouches and will now be recycling them. She will be making Capri Sun purses.

She and Grandma Tere will be sewing the pouches together and making gifts for friend and family. In the layout below, she is learning to sew with Grandma and will be ready to start her purses.

Through Ingrid I have learned that it is very simple to recycle and do our part to save the enviroment and the polarbears. I hope you will do the same.
