The Millionaire Kids Club: Putting The Do In Donate


Published on

Dennis can't wait to get to school on Monday to tell his friends about the amazing event that happened at church. On Sunday, Dennis was one of 50 people at church who received $100 from his pastor. But there's a catch: Dennis has to use the money to help someone less fortunate. With advice from his friends, Isaiah, Stephanie and Sandy, Dennis is sure to think of someone in need. With a little creativity and hard work, the four pals might even figure out a way to turn Dennis' $100 into an even bigger donation.

  4. 4. Stephanie, Isaiah and Sandy were waiting for the morning bell to ring as their friend, Dennis, raced up to them. “The coolest thing happened at my grandparents’ house this weekend,” Dennis said excitedly. 2
  5. 5. “My whole family was at their house to celebrate my grandpa’s 80th birthday. Right after the best chocolate cake ever, he asked all the kids to help him with a special birthday project. I didn’t know what the special project was yet, but I know my grandpa and this was going to be fun!” 3
  6. 6. “You mean you were ready to do something you knew nothing about?” Stephanie asked. “You bet,” said Dennis, “and you’ll never believe what happened next. On his own birthday, Grandpa George gave each one of us a $100 bill!” 4
  7. 7. “That’s a totally huge amount of money!” Stephanie exclaimed, wishing someone had given her $100. “I know,” Dennis said. “But why would your grandpa give each of you $100?” asked Stephanie. “Grandpa George said it’s money he saves each year to give away to people or places that need the money. This year, he wanted to see what we would do with the money. There are only two rules. We can’t spend it on ourselves and we have to go out and do something good with it.” 5
  8. 8. “That’s all Grandpa George said, that you should go out and do something good with it?” Isaiah asked as he pulled out his pencil and notebook. “And not spend it on yourself,” Stephanie sighed. “That’s it,” Dennis answered. “Now, I need to figure out what to do with the money.” The friends agreed to help Dennis figure out what to do with his $100 at their regular meeting of The Millionaire Kids Club after school. Last year, the four friends started The Millionaire Kids Club to help them decide what to do with the money they earned from a garage sale. The club was so much fun that they decided to meet once a week to learn about money and to handle the occasional money challenge like the one Dennis was working on right now. 6
  9. 9. When Mrs. Berry walked into the room, she was holding an empty grocery bag. “Good morning, class,” she said. “I had planned to teach you all about donating today, but first, I have a real problem and I need everyone’s help to solve it.” 7
