CONWAY, Ark. (News release) – Skylar Pitman, a sixth grader at Greenbrier Middle School, decided to make a difference in a big way. She told her mom that she wanted to use her money to help feed hungry kids.
She goes to school with some children who live at Soaring Wings Ranch (SWR), and through this relationship she discovered a way to meet the basic needs of the children who live there.
SWR is a Christian home that serves neglected, abandoned, and abused kids. They provide a loving and stable home where children can grow spiritually, emotionally, intellectually and socially. The ranch is very close to opening an infant and toddler home for the youngest children who are in need in our state.
When Skylar learned about the new home the ranch would have, she created a way to raise money to meet the needs of this home. After talking with her step-mom, Misty, she decided to make bracelets and created an online campaign to sell them. She named her campaign, “The Sky’s the Limit.” She instantly developed awareness and a large group of supporters.
In the course of her two-week bracelet campaign for Soaring Wings Ranch Skylar raised $972.00 to provide food and formula for the infants and toddlers who will arrive at the ranch soon. Skylar has proven that you can make a big difference in someone’s life even when you are young. She has plans to create new campaigns for other organizations who feed children in Arkansas. For this incredible girl, the sky really is the limit.
