Well if this isn’t the cutest little Badass Chick then I don’t know who is! 6-year-old Hannah Dragonetti of West Bridgewater celebrated her birthday by asking her friends to donate to Women’s Lunch Place instead of bringing her birthday presents…and I totally love her for it!
Hannah turned six on August 19th and she asked her mom if she could invite not just her Girl Scout troop to her birthday party, but her whole class as well. Knowing full well that Hannah didn’t need any more gifts in the house, her mom Robyn thought this might be a good opportunity to immerse Hannah in philanthropy. Hannah had been learning about philanthropy through the Girls Scouts (they have done Christmas toy drives and most recently “adopted” a classroom in Texas affected by Hurricane Harvey), so the two did some research together to find an organization that Hannah would be interested in. As soon as Robyn explained to Hannah that some people in the community don’t have a place to live, it was settled: they would use Hannah’s birthday to donate to Women’s Lunch Place, which provides food and basic necessities to women in need.
Hannah’s friends showed up to her party with wonderful donations of makeup, perfume and nail polish. Hannah, her sister Ava and Robyn went to Women’s Lunch Place this week and dropped off the donations, which will be given to Women’s Lunch Place guests on their birthdays.
Can you think of a better way to be a Badass Chick?? Hannah’s the best and I am so happy there are kids like her out there!
Instead of asking for toys and games like most six-year-olds would, Hannah asked her friends and family to bring her birthday gifts that she could donate as birthday gifts to the ladies at Women’s Lunch Place. Hannah, her mom Robyn, and her two-year-old sister Ava came in to deliver the gifts– make up, nail polish, slippers, perfume and other fun items for our guests. They also brought along 30 bags with lip balm, tweezers, hair ties, and nail files. Thank you Hannah!! #mondaymotivation #giftsthatgiveback #sharingiscaring #love #service #birthdaycelebrations #happybirthday #blessed
