We received a thank you earlier in the week from the Jessie Rees Foundation, which you can read below:
Laurel United Methodist Church (Sunday School Kids),
You'll recall that the proceeds from our 2013 Bake Sale went to the Jessie Rees Foundation to create more JoyJars. By taking the time to bake goodies with your family and putting forth your most charming faces, you (along with our generous congregation) were able to raise money for such an important cause! Jessie was and is an excellent example of just how much a single individual with an idea can do for a whole lot of people. Her motto was that saying from the thank you note: "NEGU: Never Ever Give Up!" It doesn't matter how small or young you are, inside is an incredible person who is capable of great and amazing things - you've just got to believe. Believe in you and believe your faith will bring you through! Let's adopt that mission: NEGU!
