Jonas' Ooey Gooey Cookies and Lemonade Are Saving Lives

“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” — Shel Silverstein

Our guest author Cara is a Volunteer Program Supervisor at Feed My Starving Children’s Schaumburg, Illinois site.

Jonas was so excited to turn 5 and finally be able to come in to our Schaumburg site to volunteer. But before he came to volunteer, he wanted to raise money for FMSC.

He set up a stand outside his house and sold lemonade and his special ooey gooey chocolate chip cookies.

He raised enough money to feed two children for an entire year!

Jonas is proof that you are never too young or have too little to make a difference. Thank you, Jonas!
