Today I got a package and an envelope from Operation Smile. I opened the package thinking that it was a t-shirt from Operation Smile, but to my surprise, it was "Luke"! Luke is my new teddy bear with a story. In the envelope there was a Certificate thanking me for my help in providing children new smiles and new lives. I feel so happy!



Lemonade Stand at Bryn Mawr Farmer's Market

Posted by Mariana on July 28, 2012 at 2:45 PM Comments comments (0)

On July 28th, I did a lemonade stand in the Bryn Mawr's Farmers' Market.  At first there were not many people who wanted lemonade, but then, lots of people started coming to have some lemonade because it was getting really hot! I raised $358.00 in the lemonade stand process.  With my other money, I raised a total of $535.00  This means that I get to transform the life of two children!  I feel very proud of myself and I was very happy because my friend Sarah helped, and then all my friends started coming and I gave them jobs for them to help too.  Please see more photos on my "Photos" tab. :)

I told my Mommy and Daddy I wanted to help transform the life of a child. They told me I had to work very hard. They said I needed a Script and a Blog. A Script and Blog would help me insipire people to want to help me transform lives.


I asked my Mommy to take me to Staples for stickies, a board and "'chinchetas" (Spanish word for pushing pins). I wanted to work right away but Mommy said no, because we had to wait for Daddy to come and help us. Then one day, when Emilio was sleeping, my Mommy and I finally open the board and I started writing. First I wrote about who I am, next I wrote about my mission and last I wrote about my goal. It was a lot of hard work but I did not stop until I finished. I felt proud about my work
