CEO Mary Dailey Brown loves middle school students. “They get it,” she says. A recent opportunity to speak in a Michigan school resulted in a school-wide effort to raise funds for Syrian refugees – primarily because of the strong response from the 6th graders, who sold holiday crafts, raising over $600 dollars for SowHope. Shortly after this, another group of middle school students – across the world in another school – also raised money for the same purpose, $1,500 during a bake sale.
Students wrote of the inspiration Mary gave them to help others, and many expressed their understanding that they could make a difference in the lives of those who have few rights. One student’s response to Mary’s story of starting SowHope was: “She thought about what she wanted to do and actually did it!” Know some middle schoolers? Ask Mary to tell them about the plight of women and watch what happens!
