In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
By raising funds to support animals in crisis, participants act with kindness in caring for other living beings.
Explain to the children that you will host a bake sale to raise money to help animals. Tell them briefly about the different organizations you can support and have participants vote to select an organization. Or, tell the children about the organization you have selected.
Have participants help make signs to promote sales, put price labels on baked goods, and help sell items. Donate proceeds to the organization you have selected.
You might donate to:
At the end of the bake sale, gather as a group and process the activity with questions such as:
Say, in these words or your own:
As Unitarian Universalists we believe it is important to take care of all of the living beings in the web of life because we are all connected to each other.
End the activity by singing, "We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands," inviting the participants to add verses such as "dolphins and the whales (in our hands)" or "the cats and the dogs (in our hands)" with corresponding motions.
