We raise money for autism by selling ice pops

In the summer my friend and I sell ice pops for autism. We do it every year and we raise about $100 for our school’s autism program.

We buy our ice pops and put them into a cooler and we go straight down the block, and we are off selling them! Our ice pops aren’t expensive. They are only $1 each.

We ring doorbells to sell the ice pops. My friend Taylor has her mom come along with us, too. If the neighbor isn’t home, we put a flyer in their mailbox, so they can call us if they are interested. We are glad to do this for our friends at John Street School. It’s for a good cause.
