And if the efforts of these inspiring members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America save one life, their hard work is worth every single jar that’s ever been filled.
Yet, somehow, I know it won't end here. Others will start jars and other schools will follow Westlake's example and launch their own similar fundraisers.
This Christmas, I am grateful to the students and faculty of Westlake High School for teaching me one of the most valuable lessons of the year.
Making a difference is all about “the one” we love, “the one” we serve and “the one” we just might save.
