Pennies for Patients

Each year at Tyler's elementary school they have a fundraiser called Pennies for Patients.  The kids are to empty their piggy banks (if they want) or ask family, friends, and strangers (not really) for change for their bucket.  Tyler wanted to earn a TON of money for the cause, so we came up with the idea of making cards and selling them for whatever price people wanted to pay. 

He's a pretty creative little dude, so he took some of the ideas that people gave him and made cards or he made up some ideas of his own.  He ended up earning $125 in donations on his own.  Pretty awesome!

The principal, Mr. Stewart, made an announcement to the whole school that he would shave his head and dye his hair blue if each class raised $100.  Well, the whole school did do that and Tyler was able to help with the dyeing process since he did such a cool thing and earned so much money.  Pretty proud Mommy moment.
