In May the girls were able to participate in giving away a bike to a boy named Sam. They raised the money for by selling lemonade and making loom bracelets. The best part was that the bike ended up costing less than was expected, and with just a few hundred more dollars, they'd be able to purchase a second bike for another child in need. They got to work right away and raised another $315.00 to make the full cost of the second bike! The generosity of family, friends and neighbors who want to help has been both overwhelming and heartwarming.
The other night the second bike was gifted to Daniel, before the Wilmington Blue Rocks took the field in a baseball game. It was a great night. The girls were excited to be on the field, and it turns out that Daniel had no idea he would be receiving a bike of his very own. There were smiles and happy tears all around!
