BLUEBERRY AMBASSADOR MOMENTS
Flint Neithercut Elementary, coordinator Paula Gibson
Me and my classroom had delivered flowers from Walmart. We went to three random houses and sang a song to all of them. We chose to do this to bring joy to them because some people go through stress in the holidays. We wanted to be kind to others. The second person was so happy and joyful everyone gave her a hug. The first person was surprised. It was amazing. The other person put it on Facebook. I felt happy that I did something kind. It was a fun experience. That field trip was amazing.
I gave a homeless man some money so he can eat some food from somewhere. I feel bad for people who don’t have a house and that’s why I did it. I didn’t get that much of a reaction. He said thank you and he was happy. After I started walking away it felt good.
I gave a card to a little boy with cancer and he was dying so me and my classroom were making letters for the boy with penguins on them. I decided to do this so I can give him some joy before he passes away to give the world a little joy. The little boy’s reaction was happy. That’s all I heard from the teacher. It made me have some happiness and joy in my heart. It was amazing.
My classroom and I went to houses and I gave the people their flowers and sang Jingle Bells for them. It was the right thing to do, that’s why we were spreading Christmas cheer to everyone. The people reacted the same, shocked that we gave cheer to them. That’s how they felt. I felt happy for them because they were so nice.
We sent a boy penguin cards. We wanted to be kind because he was dying. I think he felt happy because his wish was to get early Christmas presents before he died. It made me feel good on the inside because I wanted him to be happy before he passed.
I walked my neighbor, Drew’s dog. I did this because his legs were sore and he couldn’t do it. He felt good and said thank you and then he might need me to do it again sometime. It made me feel good on the inside and on the outside because I like helping people.
We went to people’s houses and gave them a bouquet of poinsettias. We sang a carol and said a slogan “We are Blueberry Ambassadors and we’re performing Random Acts of Kindness. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.” I decided to do this for my school, my community, and other people. I also did it for lonely people who have nobody and need some cheer in their life! People are not like flowers in a garden and always bloom. Some people are dull like a flower with no sunlight. The first person came outside when the carol was over and said thanks, took pictures and asked about the Blueberries. The second person was a woman and said thanks and took the flowers and gave us hugs and took a picture as we said our slogan. The last person we encountered was getting out of the car and took them and told us say hi to Facebook. I felt good because I did something good and I’m glad I made somebody feel great and finish their day and it almost made me cry. We’re changing lives every day we get a chance!
I gave an old lady a hand with her bags from the store because she was struggling to lift two milk jugs and the cases of water. She gave me $20 and I said thank you I really don’t want your money and she said take it you earned it. I said thanks again. I didn’t do it for money. I did it because I like to help people in need. I didn’t do it to be awarded of some sort, I just to see someone happy once in a while. She said thanks for helping me and she gave me a hug and kiss on my cheek. I felt really good about it. It made my day that was amazing to see her be helped and be able to be cared for.
I helped my dad clean the gutters out yesterday. I had to get on the ladder because he very scared of heights so I said I’ll do it. I got up there, broke the rest off and he handed me the new one and I nailed it on with a nail gun. I did it because it’s helpful and because we really need to fix up our house because in four years we are moving to California so we were trying to fix it up and sell it. So that was a milestone for us. My dad said thanks and he gave me a $100 and we went out to eat at Olive Garden and he took me home after my meal and a movie. I felt good to help my dad because he really needed to get to that because me and my dad forget a lot of it we don’t get to it right away.
We sang Jingle Bells to cheer people and we spoke to each of them. We said we are trying to spread kindness like Blueberry Ambassadors. Merry Christmas! We wanted to be a class and spread holiday cheer. The first person reacted like she like it never happened before and the second person took pictures. I feel I want to do it for more people.
When it was winter, my next door neighbor was getting stuck in his driveway every time he left. The fifth time he got stuck I grabbed a shovel when he pulled out and I decided to shovel his driveway to help him out. When I was halfway done, he came home. He said thank you and gave me $50 but I gave it back. I felt great because that was actually my third time doing that for somebody. It gets better each time.
There was a little boy fighting cancer and my teacher said we were going to make cards for him. I made a card with a penguin on it because penguins are his favorite animal. And on the picture, I made a bubble coming from his mouth and in the bubble I said, “live like a penguin.” Then I colored it and inside I wrote, “I hope you have a last good Christmas. I really wish this didn’t happen to you.” I think he liked it. I felt good because it was my first time doing something for someone going through cancer.
We sang to three people and gave them flowers. The first person was so surprised. The second person was happy! I’m so happy! The last person didn’t think it was for her. She even put us on Facebook.
I helped a kid make a game. The game is called the man and the woman in Minecraft. I love helping the man. He plays Minecraft, WWE and Lego game. He is so happy he made me food. We help one man. It makes me happy.

When my mom was asleep, I put on my clothes and went outside. When I got outside, I started to shovel the driveway and the walkway. It was a lot of snow and my mom had to go places when she woke up. When she woke, she kept saying thank you until she left. I felt loved and happy knowing that I made my mom happy.

I cut the grass for an old person and we whacked the old person’s weeds. I did it because she was old and she could have hurt herself with the lawn mower. The old person was happy and thankful for what I did for her. I was proud of what I did for someone that was not able to do it.

I made a Christmas card for a boy named Jacob who was dying from cancer. I did it because I thought the boy should see some nice Christmas cards before he passes on. I bet he reacted so happy that he probably lived for a couple more minutes. I felt really good to try to brighten up his days a little bit.
I shoveled the neighbors snow. I thought it was nice since it was the snowy season, it would be easier for them to get around and do stuff. They felt really happy because they were about to do it but I offered to help. I felt really good because seeing them happy made me happy and want to do it again.
I took the trash out for my dad. I decided to do that since he was at work for eight hours. So, he could relax. He said thank you very much. He also said that doing work like that will give you more privileges. I felt great because I like getting privileges.
I helped a friend complete his work without him asking. I saw that he was struggling. He was thankful for me helping him when he didn’t ask. I felt like I could do something nice for everyone.

He’s the best grandpa I could ask for! He was happy because he hadn’t been feeling good that whole day and I helped him get through the sickness.

We went to three people’s houses and gave them flowers. It made me feel like a Blueberry Ambassador. It was great to help people. I decided to do this because if you give, you get back. I felt so happy because people really care about holiday cheer. The first person was very happy and loved it. The second person also loved it and she couldn’t believe it. The last was so positive and she put it on Facebook.
I helped my grandma pack to get to her brand new house and I helped her decorate her whole house even her bathroom. I decided to help her because I love her and I really love to help or decorate. When I asked her if I could help, she was surprised and asked what I wanted to help with. I really felt like I could help for my Blueberry Ambassadors. I felt like maybe I should do this more often it helps you when you see other people’s hearts warmed it warm your own heart.
I helped my mom cook and clean when she got back from her job. I decide to help her because she’s always on her feet and never really gets to lay down and rest for a few minutes. My mom was really surprised that I wanted to help her. I really love her so much, I had to help her since she had a long day. This made me feel like I was a superhero or something because I saved the house and it made me feel wonderful except when we had to cook the baked greens.

I felt good about it because he was going to do it but I did for him and he always lets me borrow his snow blower.
We made cards for a little boy because he had cancer and he was about to lose his life.
