At Purple Cake Day we love the knock-on effect.
That's essentially what 'kids helping kids' is all about. Sometimes we don't actually see the effect of acts of kindness or generosity (or the impact it may have on the givers!)
And other times we can see the trail, like in the photo above of Farlouna. The room & board they talk about comes from a knock-on. Remember when Bella, a (then)11 year old in Nelson, wanted to give up her Christmas presents for kids in Haiti? People got behind her initiative and there was money left over, so the school identified another need and set up the 8 dorm beds at the school. This means Farlouna, who was often unable to travel safely from her home in the notorious Cite Soleil, can keep attending the school.
We think of Havana, who bravely shaved her hair, and the Fa'avae kids and many others who have gone out of their way and given up a lot, for others. Who knows what knock-ons these acts of generosity might spark.
We're so proud of all of our Purple Cake Day people. The collage photo above doesn't even scratch the surface. You are awesome.
