BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (From Children’s Home Society) — Desiring to give back to their community, 10-year-old Hanbi and her friends Shelly, Roma, Richard and Ariel turned a fun craft into a fundraising tool for Children’s Home Society of Florida, serving children and families throughout Broward County.

The friends made charms from polymer clay and sold them for children and families in need. Selling more than 600 bracelets, the students presented a $320 donation to Children’s Home Society of Florida on June 2.

“Since learning about Children’s Home Society of Florida, my friends started to realize the craft we did for fun could actually help many kids our own age. We felt like we were helping the world,” said Hanbi, a 4th grader at Del Prado Elementary in Boca Raton.
