My 1st grader will be jumping rope in school tomorrow to help raise funds for Jump Rope for Heart. This is his first official fundraiser and I’m so proud of him – he was quite motivated by the idea of getting cool prizes for the amounts he could raise (he had his eye on a scooter), but after explaining to him that he could forgo the fundraising gift to help give more money to the children with special hearts, he happily agreed (and that was my proud mommy moment). So, today I congratulated him on the amount he has already collected and he said, “Well, I didn’t have to do anything.” Guess I’ll check back in after tomorrow 🙂
