A while ago, we were driving in Indianapolis and I saw a homeless guy holding a sign and then I got mad and sad. I got mad because everybody just drove by him, I got sad because I don't want anybody to have to go through that. So I went through and tried to find some things to raise money for things like that. One of the things we came up with was a bake sale or a bubble soccer. Then a little later our church gave us twenty dollars to do something to bless the world. We prayed about what to do with this money. I thought it would be great if there was a way to give left over food to homeless people, but I didn't know how to do that. Then my dad thought he remembered reading about a program like that, so he looked online and found Food Rescue. Now we're trying to start Food Rescue program at our school and I hope we can.
