My dilemma: I have a friend who is going through a terrible tragedy with her daughter. You can read about it here. We decided after Laila died to do a family service project once a month (we try to write down all the service we do throughout the month but want to do at least one family one). Anyway, I thought we should do one as a family for my friend. I thought perhaps a hot chocolate stand or something along those lines and all the proceeds would go towards the expense for the surgery or whatever. But Mike doesn't feel comfortable trying to sell something to earn money. So, any ideas? He thought perhaps we just have the boys do service around the neighborhood and then we pay them from our own pocket for what they do and that money goes to my friend. But I feel like it might mean more if we involve the community in a way that we do service and they have a chance to contribute to that service. Thoughts? Ideas on something we could do that is a nice compromise?
