Kindy supports Nepal with market stand

 

kindy nepal 1-855Following the earthquake in Nepal the children of Mangawhai Kindergarten last week decided they could do something to help.

Supported by the kindergarten leaders, Orphan Aid International and Zoey Gruener, mother of Hope (aged 4), a market stand was organised last week with all profits going to earthquake relief efforts.

Kindy kids donated unwanted toys and there were plenty of homemade cupcakes, biscuits and lemonade on sale to tempt market-goers.

The stand was very successful. In little over a week the children were able to raise more than $500.

Zoey credited the kindy teachers for the approach they took towards the fundraiser, teaching children the importance of helping others as well as the many skills involved in setting up the stand.

"The children were very involved, it was a learning experience that benefited everyone," she said.

The response on market day was overwhelming with the generosity from parents and the general public.

“It was fantastic for the children to see how an unwanted toy sitting in a box at home could benefit someone else,” added Zoey.
