The duct tape (Make sure things aren't sloppy before you try to sell them).
Organizational and COMMUNICATION skills: it took us a while to learn how to organize our meetings, and plan for projects, which made everything less stressful. It took even LONGER to learn how to discuss things without talking over each other, repeating things we had already said, going off topic, or yelling at each other to be quiet...
Our goal is to make the world a better place through fundraising, volunteering, & raising awareness.

How We Began...
The idea for our organization began with four girls from Valle Crucis Elementary wanting to make a "club". Inspired by the book
A Kids Guide to Giving by Freddi Zeiler
, Cami had the idea of a philanthropy group (we learned that word later...) We couldn't decide on a cause to serve, so we chose them all, hence the name APE. Our first four members were Cami, Barbara, Olivia W, Olivia H. We started by selling baked goods and glow sticks at Music in the Park, in Valle Crucis. That year we raised around $200 for the Watauga Humane Society, and we have kept selling at the park ever since.
In 2011 one of our members, Barbara Ramsdell, went with her family on a six month trip to South Africa. When she can back, Barbara told us about the orphanage they had visited. Labone Land is an orphanage for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS. Last Christmas we decided to send presents to the 42 children in Labone. They asked for shoes so we sent a large box with a pair of shoes, socks and some little doodads for each. This Christmas we will be sending T-shirts, socks, bord games, Legos, and books. Labone has become our first long term project, and we plan on continuing communication with them.
