By making popsicles out of lemons, eight-year-old Kate Kilpatrick was able to change the life of a child.
On a warm Southern California day, Kate decided to set up a stand and sell lemon popsicles in her front yard. After two weekends of sales, she made $27.00 and donated half of her proceeds to Convoy of Hope to help those in need.
“It is better for other people to have food and clothes who don’t have any, than to keep more for ourselves,” says Kate.
The $13.50 Kate sent to Convoy of Hope is enough money to feed a child for almost a month.
“Not only will Kate’s donation help feed a child, it will also allow for a more healthy environment,” says Kevin Rose, children’s feeding programs director for Convoy of Hope. “It will help provide safe, clean water to drink and a better chance for a good education. We can all learn from Kate’s compassion.”
Kate’s mom, Ana Maria, says her daughter is always thinking about how she can help others. “We were thrilled that she had the generosity in her heart to give,” she says.
