A child's birthday celebration helps children in need

Mercedes chose to celebrate her 8th birthday with friends at the Feed My Starving Children site in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

Mercedes chose to celebrate her 8th birthday with friends at the Feed My Starving Children site in Chanhassen, Minnesota.

From an exhaustive list of birthday party options, we are so proud that our daughter Mercedes chose to celebrate by packing food with friends at Feed My Starving Children. What was even greater was hearing all of the kids and parents say how much fun they had. It's so nice to see these kids rocking the hairnets and enjoying helping others. (All food packed that night went to help feed families in Haiti.)
