A llama might be good for a family in Peru but there are needy families in the United States.
While I think it is very important to teach young children to do for others in need, I think maybe they could have helped out a needy family closer to home. There are a lot of families with small children living on the streets and thousands of our children go to bed hungry every night. I think this troop leader could have made a better decision as to what community to help. She should have looked around her own neighborhood because I’m sure she could have found someone there in need.
