Feeding 2000 hungry children by Living with Grace

I am so excited to announce the results for our first fundraiser for Live With Grace! We had a group of approximately 20 children that ranged in age from 4-6 years old. They did a variety of activities from selling jewelry to having lemonade stands with all of the profits benefiting The World Food Program's Fill the Cup Program. They raised money little by little, with donations as small as a penny at times. They learned about children who live every day hungry... live every day without toys or beds or homes.

I am proud to announce that these children raised over $475!!! At a quarter a day, this money will feed more than 1900 children! The lessons that the children learned, and the conversations that this project started between the children and their parents are just as valuable as the dollars raised. What a great success! Thank you to everyone who participated and thank you to everyone who donated!

Livi, Ava, Zach and I are all now talking about what is next for Live With Grace. We have had many requests for jars. I have some on order, and as soon as they are in, I will be sending them your way. If you would like to request a jar for your family or children, please email me at and I will get you on our list. We are excited to now have certificates for children who participate in the Live With Grace program. Please let me know if that is something that you are interested in.

Stay tuned for more exciting information on Live With Grace and our newest project! Congratulations again and thank you to all of you for your participation in the Fill the Cup project!
