“Honestly I teared up a little bit because it’s always amazing to see how and what deep thinkers children are. And how much thought and effort they put into everything they do. Oh my gosh, I actually had to excuse myself for a minute and grab a Kleenex because it was touching,” Nelson admitted.

Habitat for Humanity was really gracious for Trinity’s efforts to help them and the children’s kind hearts. The organization is still taking donations for lumber pieces which can cost up to $100 dollars per piece. In addition, they are still having their Giving Tuesday fundraiser event that’s coming up soon and are accepting online donations.
