Children Helping Children
That’s what the Cupcake Crusade in Canyon, Texas is all about.
Upon hearing the message of the hurting children around the world and the way Christian Relief Fund can help, Sandy Allison of the University Church of Christ in Canyon decided to tell the kids in her children’s ministry.Sandy explained how we often think that when children grow up they can help with the big problems of the world. But she believed that children don’t have to wait to be a part of the solution.
As Sandy was teaching the children at church and telling them about orphans who didn’t have food, money, clothing or even shoes—one of her kids got the point. He told her that his parents had just purchased him new shoes for school. “Can you give one of the children my shoes,” he said.
It didn’t stop there. The other children wanted to help the helpless.They planned a Cupcake Crusade. Their little hands helped bake cakes, set up a Cake Walk, and provided tunes of praise with their voices as church members walked around chairs hoping to win a cake.
After all was said and done, these children raised $812 to give to CRF to help needy children around the world!
