HELLO FELLOW PHILANTHROPISTS!
We are the Heather Hills Philanthropists. We are a group of (7) 4th graders that attend Heather Hills Talented and Gifted Elementary School in Bowie, MD. We believe that giving brings us closer to creating a world that we want to live in. It starts with each one of us.
Every year we set out to help our community in some shape or form. Our goal this year is to raise $1,000. Wouldn't it be great if together we could do even more? Well we did and our new goal is 1500.00.
We won't just stop if we reach that goal. There is so much more we can do for the children. Help us to far exceed this goal!!!!
This year we are looking to make children who are dealing with "CANCER" smile. We wish there was a cure! In the mean time, if we come together as a community, we can help to make their situation a tad bit more manageable, while God works it all out!
The beneficiary this year will be the Children's National Foundation
Last year, we were so excited and grateful to be able to fill our neighboring food pantry with enough food to feed our community for one month. The Bowie Food Pantry said it was the largest donation ever given by kids our age! We could not have done it without your support!
