Sowing Seeds

I'm a gardener and in my garden blog you will see all the plants and flowers I grow in my garden. But I also have another garden that I tend....and this is even closer to my heart than the one in my own yard.
Our charity foundation has a little community library. 
On one side of  the wall you see a tree. This tree is a reminder that in our community service, we are growing trees. So it takes time to see the fruit of our labor but the result is long lasting and even beyond our lifetime. 
We also call this corner the friendship garden. For the children, this serves as a reminder that they are important to us and that they all belong to a community. 
The children we serve come from different background - Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus. In our library and in the classroom, they become one happy community. 
Would you like to help tend this garden? 

There are many ways you can do that would mean a lot to a life of a child and to the community he/she lives in but for now we would like to invite you to join us by putting one of these badges   on your blog. We need to spread the word for we can't do this alone. We need you to help us in making a difference in the lives of these children.
Copy and paste the picture in your blog linking to
Our special thanks to the Santos Family for hosting a penny auction and donated the proceeds  to Happy Community Foundation. Read the full story here and you will be blessed to see how children are helping children from across the continent.

Hi Ruth~ This is a great post and I am sending a copy to the children who were a part of the auction. They will be happy to see that they were mentioned. Love to you.
