9 Year Old Daughter of Former Mercy Girl Raises Hundreds of Dollars for Mercy!!!

Today in the mail I received these pictures along with a check from 9 year old Brittney who is the daughter of one of our former residents, Kristy (pictured left), from years ago. Brittney got it in her heart that she wanted to help raise money for Mercy because she knows that we have a lot of needs at the moment, and she decided that she wanted to do her part. Brittney (pictured right) made a decision to make the bracelets (pictured below) and sell them for $1 apiece. She made and sold 503 of these bracelets and sent us a check today for the entire amount!!! I thought it was one of the most awesome things I have heard straight from the heart of a child who cares about others. I hope it touches your heart as much as it did mine. We can all do our part, and together we can make a great difference!
