Payson’s crafty kid Alaina Belk is holding a to help orphans in Ghana. Here’s the story in Alaina’s own words.
Help Me Feed the Orphans of Ghana
My name is Alaina Belk. I am 10 years old. My family is adopting a little girl from Africa. I am worried about the other children in the orphanage. They need medicine, food and clothes. I had the idea of gathering for Ghana. I started going through my toys and clothes to see what I could sell to make money to help the children in my little sister’s orphanage. Maybe you have toys, clothing and other things that you don’t need that we might be able to sell. Please help me help the poor children in Ghana who don’t have a family to take care of them. We are so blessed and have so much. If we all give a little bit we can make a big difference.
