S.F. Foundation to Homeless: Let Them Eat Cake
|Actually, there's no evidence Marie Antoinette said "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche."|
According to the Marin IJ:
For several months 13-year-old Emily Villavicencio and 14-year-old Olivia Thomas, both eighth-graders at Marin Waldorf School, have been preparing the astonishingly professional-looking cakes for foster kids and children at Homeward Bound of Marin's Family Resource Center shelter.
"It was very focused on helping other children who were probably a similar age, who didn't have the love and support that they had. "They wrote about taking hours to make theses cakes. It's not like they went to Safeway and bought a cake. They really put in so much time and went to get flowers to put on them. Each cake is individualized for the child."
Before you know it they'll be giving them shoes, crutches, and winter coats.
