Lemonade and Bracelets: Help for Hurricane Alex Relief

July 19, 2010

Abby, and her best friend, Annika love making friendship bracelets.  Yesterday, they decided to use their hobby to help a greater cause.  They hosted a bracelet and lemonade stand in front of their neighborhood pool to benefit Back2Back hurricane relief efforts in Monterrey, Mexico.  Excited about the opportunity to help victims of Hurricane Alex, Abby’s younger sisters, Grace & Rachel, jumped in, helping at the lemonade stand, and even buying some bracelets for themselves.  Later, Grace, Rachel, and Abby’s brother, Luke, also donated money they had already set-aside to tithe.  In the end, Abby & Annika also contributed their babysitting money, bringing the total amount raised to $100!

Back2Back thanks all those, like Abby and Annika, who give of their time and resources to enable us to continue to provide “care for today and hope for tomorrow” to orphans in need around the world!
