Kids Helping Haiti

All of us here at Hillwood Academic Day School have been doing bake sales all week to raise money for local dog shelters and Haiti relief.

Charlie, a 7-year-old in West London, rode five miles to raise money for the Unicef childrens' appeal to give food, water, and shelter for the people in Haiti. He was aiming to raise £500 ($1,000) but raised £110,00 ($220,000). He got sponsors from all over the world. To get all of these sponsors, he posted a blog on the Internet. (Charlie is shown in this picture from the BBC.)

Charlie isn't the only person who is trying to help Haiti, many kids around the world are and you can help, too.
