Project PUT at Indianapolis Children’s Museum and Tree of Promise

Spring Break 2014, Eloise went with me to visit family in Indianapolis.  We absolutely had to stop at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis because it is one of my favorite places in the world.  the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a wonderful, magical place.

We were excited to find there THE TREE OF PROMISE, supporting THE POWER OF CHILDREN to make a positive difference by serving their communities.

Eloise wrote a leaf and entered the PROJECT PUT message into the TREE OF PROMISE.
