Trash Into Treasure
Marisa, age 11, Alana, age 8, Michael, age 6, Ontario, Canada
You know recycling helps the earth, but did you know it can also help children in poverty? That's what these siblings found out last year when they turned glass bottles into more than $1,000 to help children in Compassion's program. Every Thursday, the Kids With Compassion pull their wagon around town collecting empty bottles and cans, which stores buy and recycle. Their parents made a website that tracks the kids' progress on their next goal: raising $2,000 to help build a well in Tanzania.
