Ingrid's Perler Bead Jewelery



Dear Monk Seal Foundation,

My name is Ingrid. I am 10 years old and live in D.C. I love animals. I had heard about monk seals in books and movies. But one morning I was reading a National Geographic magazine and there was an article on monk seals. I read it and I was surprised at the number of monk seals left. I decided to try and raise some money for a charity for monk seals. I searched the Internet and came up your organization, Monk Seal Foundation. I thought of a lemonade and cookie stand. But then I decided that would not make enough money so I thought of making perler beads to sell. My brother and I made tons of different perler bead creations until finally we had around 30 different creations.

One Friday my friend Cooper came over for a sleepover. After we stopped by a grocery store for the lemonade and cookies for the stand. After that Cooper and I made a poster with a picture of a monk seal on it. The next morning, we held the stand in front of my house. My mom thought we were doing a good thing so she told us that she would match the money we made at the stand.

Well, we made around $50 at the stand. Along with the $50 in matching funds, $50 from my dad and grandmother, and $104 from my own savings, I am sending a check for $204 along with this letter.

 

Ingrid

I wanted to share a bit of history with you regarding the donation for your organization from Campbell. All summer, she has worked to raise funds for your cause. She has held lemonade stands, solicited donations and most notably, she asked all of her friends to bring donations to your foundation in lieu of presents to her 7th birthday party.

We are so proud of her tireless efforts and her determination to help the Hawaiian monk seals and hope that you are too.
