Cuties Helping Kitties

Last week, I participated in the Tacoma is for Lovers artist craft sale at Kings Books.   It was organized by Jennifer, our friend Opal's mom.   (That's Opal the human, not Opal the kitten)

Opal's best friend is Lola, and as you may recall, Lola's family adopted Imogene and Marcel Bartlett.  Lola had the idea of having a little fundraiser for the kitties, so the girls, with the help of their moms, set up a little lemonade stand at the craft fair.  

This charming and adorable sales team took this task quite seriously and managed to collect a whopping $71.15 for the Humane Society!!!

No surprise, who could say no to these these cuties???!!!


Opal is in the middle, Lola on the right, and their buddy Po is on the left.



 It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but  their sign read " Lola and Opal Lemonade Stand".

 

Here are the pictures they drew on the front of the stand -  that's Charlene with a couple of kittens!

 

The whole scene was pretty dang cute!  

I'm so proud of Opal and Lola.    It's so lovely that  they care so much at this very young age and want to raise money to help animals.  It warms my heart.

Thank you sweet, special little girls.

  6. What sweet girls--a testament to parents who are raising great kids, but also a testament to sweet, loving hearts.

    I'll never forget Opal's five pennies for your annual fundraiser a couple of years ago. And their $71.15 will do a TON of good!
