Sisters Sell Hot Chocolate to Benefit Syrian Refugees

In Canada, Abigail MacDonald, 7, and her sister Mikayla were setting up a lemonade stand to raise money for a trip to Europe.

Instead, she decided to spend her birthday raising money for those less fortunate than her. In addition, she set up a hot chocolate stand. The girl from Paris, Ontario decided to raise money for her church that is actively helping Syrian refugees.

Abby, and her parents Megan and Alex, raised $2,000 for St. Paul's United, who intend to sponsor a Syrian family.

The idea first came about as the little girl wanted to raise money to help them afford a trip to Paris, France for their parents 10-year anniversary.

Her mom said the girls could come along if they paid for their own tickets. Yet, Mikayla and Abigail overheard their parents talking about Syrian refugees. That is when "Hot Chocolate for Hope" was created.

Abby's mom, Megan, said, "Abby came back to the table every time there was a new customer. My favorite part of the day was getting got sell the hot chocolate and making people happy and getting the donations."

When the community found out, they starting making donations that ranged from a quarter to $100.
