Semiahmoo Peninsula sisters Sabine Lapointe, 11, and Violet, 8, are to host a bake sale Monday to raise money for the Black Lives Matter Foundation.
The sisters held a similar bake sale a few weeks ago in uptown White Rock and raised $700 in one day.
“I imagined it would make $50 but we ended up raising $700!” Sabine told Peace Arch News. “I feel this helped a lot so I wanted to do it again. This also made me realize no matter how old you are, you can make a difference in the world.”
The girls will be selling their homemade goods at Generations Playground (1450 Everall St.) in White Rock, starting at 1 p.m., July 6.
“We are doing this because the world is full of systemic racism, but it needs to change because Black Lives Matter too, and I feel like not enough people see that” Sabine said.
