Kisses for Kaeden
By Jody Williams
  

1     Kaeden Kulish was born with a hole in his heart. He had three heart surgeries before he was one year old. He has a sister. Her name is Kennedy. She was six years old when Kaeden had his surgeries. She spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms. She saw a lot of sick children. She also saw a lot of sad parents. She wanted to help them.
 
2     On Kaeden's first birthday, Kennedy wanted him to have a very special party. Kennedy and her mom made homemade invitations. They did not have a computer, so they used crayons and markers. They asked the guests to bring donations instead of gifts. They collected more than two thousand dollars. Kennedy hand delivered the money to the hospital where Kaeden was treated. The money went to help other kids like Kaeden.
 
3     Kennedy liked the way she felt knowing that she had helped other children. She knew that she could do more. She started her own group. It is called Kisses for Kaeden. Kennedy leads her group of friends. They raise money by having bake sales and lemonade stands. They hold auctions and garage sales. All of the money they collect is given to organizations that help sick children.
