Heartwarming story coming out of the initiative

I received a call the other day from a mother of a 14 year old girl in Medfield. She had read the article in last Sunday's Globe and was discussing it with her daughter and two friends, who were planning to have a "triple" 14th birthday party this past Saturday. As a result of their discussion, the girls called all of their invited guests (114 in total) and asked them not to bring gifts, but rather to bring the money they would have spent instead, which would then be sent to a humanitarian aid organization to benefit the children of Darfur.
