Look at the beautiful Buddy Bear Petra made in honor of the original "Teddy Bear" which has been around for over one hundred years.
Here's what Petra told us about her newest Buddy Bear:
Thank you to Petra for sharing her beautiful drawings with us here at the Kids Corner. Petra does all of our cartoons voluntarily and we really appreciate her!

A Note About Things You've Sent to the Kids Corner
Several people have sent in stories and photos for our Sharing Corner in the past few months. Please be assured that we have not forgotten about you! We have your photos and stories here and will post them as soon as possible.
We also have a few odds and ends to share with everyone and will continue to work hard to get everything up onto the website. So even if you sent something a few months ago, don't worry -- we'll get it posted.

We've prepared a web page at our Build a School helpers section for Dylan's Tennis Challenge (click on link, below). If you haven't read about what this little guy is doing, you should drop everything and read it now!

Seven Year-Old Helps Jackie Build a School
We were delighted to read some great news about a little boy in California who came up with a clever idea to raise money for Jackie's Build a School for a Dollar project. Dylan Stoutenburg is a seven year-old fan from Los Angeles, California who read about the project at our website and wanted to think of some way to help. He's an avid tennis player and has been involved in fundraising efforts before, and he came up with the idea of challenging himself to make 100 tennis serves at a local tennis court to raise money. He is recruiting sponsors to pay for each fair serve he makes. His personal goal is to get at least 50 of the serves in fair territory and his goal for the fundraiser is to raise over $1,000 for the Build a School program.
As soon as we read about Dylan we called his organization to encourage and thank him. We will keep you posted on the progress of Dylan's fundraising and hope that you will support him. You can read the whole story here.
We hope that Dylan's story will encourage other youngsters to get involved in our project. Dylan proves that you're never too young to make a difference. With a good idea and the support of the adults around them, kids of any age can help Jackie achieve his dream of an education for all children. Thank you Dylan!
Here is the email address where you can pledge money for Dylan's fundraiser.
