I was thinking about Blueberry Moments and I couldn’t think of anything, but mom said, “I could do a chore for free. So, that’s what I did. I dusted the house for free. My mom was happy. I liked helping her. I decided to dust the house, because that was the biggest chore. I liked making my mom feel happy.

Some of my clothes didn’t fit. I told my mom that we will donate them because my mom wanted to sell them in the summer at a garage sale. We ended up donating them to a church. I hope who picks them out is happy. Donating the clothes to a church made me feel good. Some kids will now have clothes to wear for school.

I volunteered for the North End Soup Kitchen (or N.E.S.K for short). This is a place where homeless people get a meal. I handed out apples to people for one hour. I also bagged doughnuts, croissants, and bagels. I was glad I helped someone get a meal. It made me feel good for the homeless people that come there.

My first Blueberry Moment was when I decided to pay for another student’s popcorn at my school on popcorn day. I don’t think it’s fair that people get to sit down without anything to eat for a snack. I brought in extra money to pay for people that don’t have money. I gave the money to the office and asked them to use it for someone who needed it. This made me feel happy.

On a cold rainy day, I took up a neighbor’s trash bin from the curb to their garage without them knowing. I did this because their mom wasn’t home and they couldn’t go outside to bring the bins in and I wanted to be nice.

I went to Tim Hortons with my mom and when we were inside I decided to pay for the person at the drive through with some of my own money. I decided I wanted to do this so they wouldn’t have to use their money. I could pay for two people with my money and the worker told me they said “thank you” and were very happy. This made me happy too!

My Aunt Suzanne works for a bank called, Fifth Third, and she told my Grandma, that her work adopted 2 families who were in need, to collect Christmas presents for. I thought it would helpful to do something nice for them. So, me and my Grandma Joyce, went to the store and bought stuff to make them blankets. We made 2 blankets, one for each family. My mom helped me make one, and my Grandma helped me make the other. They were easy and fun to make, and I think they will be very warm. I didn’t get to meet these families, but I hope they like their new blankets!

My Dad works for a company called Dee Cramer, and they were sponsoring the Coats for Kids Drive this year. My Dad and I thought it would be a great idea for us to help collect coats. Many kids can’t afford nice coats and we wanted to help keep them warm. We could collect 25 coats. We collected more coats than anyone my Dad works with collected! My Dad said everyone at work smiled and was very happy about every coat we collected. I think we will also make a lot of kids very happy. I’m glad they won’t have to be cold this winter.

I wanted to do something nice for someone I care very much about. My Great Uncle, Bill Voakes, was a very nice and caring person. He came to my football games, always made me laugh, and was always very nice to me. A little over a year ago, my uncle had a bad heart attack, which caused him to suffer severe brain damage. Now he has to live in a place, where people have to take care of him. He cannot walk or talk very good. He also needs help eating and can’t do anything on his own. My uncle can still see and hear me so, I decided I was going to read him one of my favorite books about pirates. I think my Uncle Bill liked pirates. When I went to see him, he seemed very happy to see me. He also seemed to like the book I was reading and I think he listened to the whole thing, which made me feel good because I don’t think many people read to him.

I grabbed warm pants and a house coat for her to keep warm with. I turned on the television for her because I didn’t want her to get out of bed and get cold again. I did this because it makes me feel like I am helping and becoming a mini doctor.

It was popcorn Friday at school. I decided to buy an extra bag for someone else. I gave my teacher an extra 50 cents so I could randomly pick someone who wanted popcorn, but didn’t have money. I decided to give it to one of my best friends. This made me feel happy because I like making other people happy.

The people I read to were very grateful and excited to have me there, they asked me to come back again.

I decided to donate the kids’ coats to the charity; Coats for Kids, and the adult coats I donated to a church. I also asked the rest of my family to donate their old coats to this organization and church. I felt so happy to be helping those in need, especially around the holidays. The places I donated to were very happy and appreciative.

We went to the store and I picked out the yarn she was going to use.

We will be making more and dropping them off again.

This made me feel happy, because I always wanted to help and fed goats.

These students were unable to check out library books each week and it just broke my heart. The look on their faces after they found out was priceless.

My next random act of kindness was when I left a $5 Tim Horton card in the mailbox of one of our recess monitors. She is always going out of her way for others. She constantly brings in goodies for the staff, donates games for inside recess, and takes care of each child outside at recess. She is truly a special person and I wanted to do something small to show her how appreciated she is. Thank you, Mrs. Schlack, for all your hard work, it doesn’t go unnoticed.

My last random act of kindness was purchasing a hat, gloves, and clothing for a student in my classroom. I noticed that this student didn’t have warm clothing for winter. So, I decided to get him some warmer clothes. I love every single one of my students and will do anything to help in times of need. This small gesture made this child feel special and loved. I am so grateful to provide extra needs to my students.
