Diana Freedman started Diana's Fresh Baked to raise money needed for dinners at Ronald McDonald House in New Brunswick.
The Ronald McDonald House on Somerset Avenue in New Brunswick has between five and six families staying at it at any given time, and for at least one day a month, it is Diana Freedman’s responsibility to give them a home cooked meal. “For my Bat Mitzvah project I cooked a meal for them and when I saw how much they enjoyed it when I brought it to them, I decided to make a business out of it because I enjoy cooking so much,” said the Churchill School eighth-grader.

Ultimate recycling event brought more than 700 people.
They carried in tables and chairs and bags of old clothes. Others maybe lugged in old computers or tools and maybe a bike. It didn’t matter what people brought, because it was all welcome Sunday during Freecycling, which invited people to bring their old, unwanted items, leave them, and pick and choose from something someone else brought to be discarded In other words, it was the ultimate recycling day. “The event was a huge success.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
Last week, my daughters’ elementary school sent home a note asking for donations to help the victims of the recent tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan.

I thought that my daughters’ wish to help was sweet and very touching. Kids across the U.S. are launching their own efforts to help families and children affected by the natural …
