Tyler, Texas (KETK) — The Jingle Club is a group of nine and ten-year-old girls.
"We mostly just make stuff, and then we sell it to people," said Rowan Reynolds, President of The Jingle Club.
They use the money to buy donations for foster kids.
"It kind of makes me feel sad, but it makes me feel good that we are doing something to help them," said Rowan.
Rowan started the club last spring.
"I knew my mom always worked with the foster kids, and I really wanted to help make a difference too," Rowan said.
"She and some friends got together, and they started off making bracelets. They'll sell different little candy baskets at school and to neighbors, and it was just their idea," said Rowan's mom, Jennifer Reynolds.
On Saturday afternoon, they set up a lemonade stand. The money raised will go toward school supplies for the foster kids.
"It's really fun just to know that you're making a difference, and I really like that," said Rowan.
"It feels really cool...just to know that we're raising money for them," said Jingle Club Director of Members, Caitlynn Cooper.
Rowan's mom said she was happy to help the girls.
"It actually makes me really proud as a mother. I love that all the girls get the opportunity to see that there is a greater need out there, and how fortunate they are, and they can try to make someone else's life brighter," said Reynolds.
"It feels good that you're giving back to people, and you're telling people about Jesus through the way you're giving it to them," said Jingle Club Secretary, Quaid Patrick.
Rowan said working in the heat has been worth it. She truly has a passion for helping kids in need.
"[It's] really, really, really great...I just want them to know they are loved by someone," said Rowan.
They raised over $300 today. You can contact and donate to the club on their Facebook page - The Jingle Club.
