Guest post by Hamlin parents, Wayne and Marina.
When the various hurricanes hit over the past few weeks, the devastation they had on those regions did not go unnoticed in our household. Ella, our 6-year-old, was especially affected by what happened — saddened by the sight of homes under water and the thought of people losing everything they have (including their pets!).
A few days ago she approached us and asked, “Can we do something to help the people hurt by the hurricanes?” So we talked about the various things we could do to show our support and agreed to host a bake sale and donate all proceeds to hurricane relief.
Thank you again to everyone who helped bake goodies, and a HUGE thanks to Hamlin for creating such an extraordinary environment that fosters strength, courage, independence, compassion, and responsibility in all of our wonderful girls.
