Last weekend, the children got to meet up with young Tilly and her family (Dad Ian, Mom Vicky and little brother Oli’) at the Revelation Centre, Chichester. We received an email today saying they had a fantastic time and it was lovely to meet and have dinner together. “Tilly is so excited to share her experience with the rest of her school tomorrow.”
As someone experiencing this moment via this post, you must be wondering, “Who is Tilly and why is she so special to us?” Tilly is the little eight year old girl who sold her toys to buy oranges. And sold those oranges at a profit in order to raise money for Watoto. Now isn’t she industrious? Such an inspirational story… a little girl lifts her toy to her mother and says, “What if i could sell this to help another child?” Hmmm… Amazing. May God bless you Tilly.
