For my first act of kindness, I wrote positive notes on 280 pencils. I gave the pencils to all the teachers at Mason Elementary for students who need a pencil. Every teacher will get a group of pencils to pass out to kids who ask for a pencil. I was inspired by doing this because I noticed a lot of kids don’t have pencils and keep asking the teacher for one.

For my second act of kindness, I wanted to take my favorite book, The Night before Christmas, to the senior center and read it to them. I did it because I wanted to show the seniors that I was thinking of them on the holidays. We read a story in class about a girl who visited a nursing home, so that made me think about the idea. They were all very nice and smiling and telling me how well I read. They really enjoyed me reading to them and I think this will be a new tradition every year.

Last weekend, my neighbors had to go away and asked me to look after their dog. I have done this before. When they returned, they tried to pay me like usual, but I told them no and handed them my final Blueberry Card. I explained the Blueberry Ambassador program and how they have to do a kind act to pass it on. They smiled at me and thanked me for watching their dog.

On Friday, our class had their Student council elections in the morning. During the afternoon, our teacher called all the students who tried out into the hallway to tell them who won. One of the students who didn’t win looked very sad and was crying. I felt so bad that he lost. So, on Monday, I brought him a piece of candy with a note telling him he did a great job and to never give up. I also told him that everyone fails sometimes and to be thankful for the great friends he has.

When it was Saturday at noon, I was outside playing when my mom was drinking coffee. I thought about everything that she has done for us. The driveway was covered in snow and we were going to practice later that day, so I cleaned up the snow. When it was 1:30 she looked outside and she notice the snow was cleaned. She thought the neighbors did it and It was very hard to tell my mom the truth but I didn’t. Later when I went to bed I slipped the Blueberry Card on her pillow with a note.

Blueberry Moment 13872
This morning was another snow day and my mom wasn’t feeling very good. So, I decided to do things to help her. I shoveled in front of the house then I got her a muffin for breakfast with the Blueberry Card. She gave me a hug and thanked me. I couldn’t get a picture because she didn’t want me to.

I helped with “The Snuggle Is Real” Campaign. The Snuggle is Real provides snuggle sacks which are survival kits full of essentials to homeless shelters. I bought and collected basic essentials like food, toiletries and clothing items that homeless people desperately need, but don’t have the ability to supply themselves. Then I delivered these items to the Snuggle Is Real headquarters in Fenton, Michigan.Lastly, I helped pack these snuggle sacks at the warehouse. Each sack is then given to certain homeless shelters in our area to help people in need.The teenager and her family who founded The Snuggle Is Real were super thankful for my time and generosity. I feel happy and proud that I gave stuff to people who need help who don’t have homes to live in.

I wanted to spread some holiday joy to my neighbors and people who do services for my family. I wanted to make everyone happy for the holidays. I decided that making them cookies would be a good idea because everybody loves cookies! First, with the help of my mom, I baked homemade chocolate chip cookies. Then I wrapped them in tissue paper and placed them in decorative boxes. After that, I began to pass them out. I walked to my neighbors houses and told them to have a happy holiday and then I gave them the box of cookies. Many of them said they’d pay this kindness forward. People kept telling me thank you and how nice it was of me to do this. I even got a couple of hugs. The next morning, I woke up early to give the trash collectors and recycling collectors some cookies with the Blueberry Card. They were overjoyed and I bet they’ll have a great day now that they can eat my yummy cookies, especially since it was really cold and dark outside. Every time I handed someone the cookies, I felt good inside and they were really excited. It made me feel happy to make them happy and I want to do it again.

Blueberry Moment 13892 
With the help of my sister, we made cute, cozy blankets for the children like Charlie (a friends’ brother) who receive treatments and stay at Hurley Hospital. We made fleece blankets that are really soft and will make a child happy when they are sad at Hurley Hospital. I made these blankets because I love cuddling up with a soft blanket at home and these kids aren’t at home so this will make them feel better. I also donated a “poke prize”, which the kids can choose after they get a poke/needle because children like to have something to look forward to after getting poked. After leaving Hurley and talking to Amanda, the woman who accepted our donations, my sister and I have decided to continue making blankets to try and spread happiness throughout the hospital.​

My first Blueberry Moment was when I helped my dad put up Christmas lights on the whole house. I did that because there are a lot of lights and they are hard to get on the house. Also, my two sisters said they did not want to help. He was very happy that I helped him so he did not have to do it by himself, and we got it done a lot faster. I know it is a hard job and so I went outside for about two hours. One thing that really helped was putting lights around the pillars, along with holding the lights up. Sometimes they get tangled. Also, it was cold outside and I didn’t want my dad to freeze. I wanted to make easier for him, so that is why I helped him.

Blueberry Moment 13870
Today on our snow day, early this morning, my sister and I shoveled our neighbors sidewalk and driveway.  She is an older lady and cannot do it herself. She was SO happy for the help! I was glad I could help and very tired when I was done.

Blueberry Moment 13896
Since we have had so many snow days off, I went to my grandparents’ house and my Dzdiadz (grandpa) showed me how to make homemade bread. I asked if I could take a loaf to their neighbor who has been very sick. Once it was baked, I walked to her house to deliver it. She has been in the hospital and just got home. I thought she would like something homemade. She was so happy and was going to eat some right away. It was fun to learn how to bake the bread with my Dzdiadz and share it with the neighbor, Ms. Ruth!

When we had our first snow day in Grand Blanc, my neighbors had to get up early and go to work, so I went over and shoveled their sidewalk and porch steps. Doing this good act of kindness made me feel proud of myself. I also thought the UPS man won’t slip and fall now, so he will be happy too. When I gave my neighbors the Blueberry Card, they said, “thank you very much.” I think I will shovel their sidewalk again on the next snow day.

Blueberry Moment 13890
I baked brownies and did all the dishes by myself. Then, I walked a platter of warm brownies to my new neighbors to welcome them to our neighborhood. “Welcome to our neighborhood and I hope you love it as much as I do!” They smiled and said thank you. I found out they have kids about my age so that was exciting. They were very grateful and that made me feel happy inside.

Blueberry Moment 13891
I gave Mrs. Wheeler a hot chocolate with a Blueberry Card. Mrs. Wheeler helps us get out of the car for Mason and Cook morning drop off. It has been so cold out lately, I thought she would want something warm. She is out there, rain or shine. I said, “Thank you for always helping us get out of the car safely. Here is something warm for you to drink. I hope you like it.” Mrs. Wheeler smiled and said thank you. I think she really appreciated it. It made me feel happy making someone else happy.

I wanted to give toys to kids in the hospital because we had a lot to share. Also, kids in the hospital don’t have many toys or things to play with. I thought this would cheer them up. We drove to Genesys hospital. I was pushing a wheelchair full of toys to donate. Then, we asked a woman if we could give the toys to the kids. She said with a smile, “Oh sure!” Then, we went into a room that looked like a playroom. We sat down and we took some pictures and I gave her a Blueberry Card so she can spread the word.

Blueberry Moment 13855
My family and I had a snow day today so I decided to give our neighbor some banana bread.  My mom and I made her some banana bread because her mom passed away and she’s always nice to us. When I gave her the Blueberry Card she was so happy and hugged me.

Blueberry Moment 13854
I was having dinner with my family at Big Boy in Grand Blanc. I remember reading about someone having their dinner secretly paid for, so I decided to buy a random man’s dinner. There was a man sitting by himself so I gave $10 and the Blueberry Card to the waitress to give to him for his dinner. He was so excited when she gave it to him. I didn’t take a picture because I wanted it to be a secret.

Blueberry Moment 13896
For my first Blueberry Moment, I shoveled my neighbors front step. They were at work. They don’t have a lot of time because they have little kids to take care of. I thought I would help them because I didn’t have any homework that day.

Blueberry Moment 13895 
When I was in New York City during our three-day weekend, I noticed people sitting around on the sidewalks. I asked my mom why they were just sitting there in the cold. She explained that they were homeless. I thought that was very sad. I was inspired to help the homeless because they don’t have any money for food, water, or shelter. They get really sick and cold and it is very sad watching them during this time of year. I asked mom if I could have some money and I gave it to one of the homeless people. I hope he buys something to help him stay warm and pass kindness to others.

For my first Blueberry Moment, the week before our holiday vacation, I made a batch of cookies and gave them to our janitor at Mason Elementary. He is our new janitor because the other one retired from our school at the end of December. I wanted to show the new janitor that I appreciate him very much and to make him feel welcome. When I went to the back of the school to find him, he was surprised and happy.

Blueberry Moment 13878 
My mom’s work is collecting items to make packages to send to soldiers who are in other countries. So, we went to many stores looking for stuff for the soldiers who are away from home because they can’t just go to Kroger and get food. We bought socks, gum, and other stuff and put it in a box with my Blueberry Card. My grandpa was in war for some time so I wanted to help other soldiers.

Blueberry Moment 13877
Over the weekend, my family and I went to Great Wolf Lodge. We were in the swimming area but also spent lots of time at the arcade. My mom and I won many prizes and one of those prizes was a stuffed Pikachu. My little cousin, Brett, was really trying to win it but he is so little. So, I decided to give him the Pikachu. He was so happy and it made me feel glad inside too! The next day, a little boy and his mom saw me win a stuffed s’more. His mom said she could not win, so I gave it to them and they were happy and grateful.

One day, I came in early and I helped my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Briggs, put ornaments in bags and tied bows for each bag. I wrote Mrs. Briggs a letter telling her that I wanted to help her and what time I could come. The next day, she wrote me back a letter telling me what times I could come in. Mrs. Briggs was really honored that I chose to do my first Blueberry Moment for her. While I was there, we talked about when I was in her class and I told her how I still had all of the stuff that we made and took home. We also talked about how my hockey was going and how her class has the same science unit as us. I chose Mrs. Briggs because she always has a lot of work to do before school and I wanted to make it so she did not have stress that she needed to get something done. For the rest of the day, I felt like I did something right and I wanted to do it again.

Blueberry Moment 13851
For my second Blueberry Moment, I wrote a get well soon card with positive notes on it and taped a pixie stick and a Blue​berry Card to it and took it to William Beaumont Hospital. It was given to a patient on the Intensive Care floor where my cousin was staying. There was a big cafeteria with lots of food and a gift shop. It was a very big hospital. All the doors in the hospital had drawings on the glass of princesses and cartoon characters. There was a big play room that they called the play garden where the sick kids went to play. It had books, toys, video games, and a life-size operation game. When I was there I felt confident because I was doing something nice for someone, but I also felt bad because people were getting big surgeries and had to lay in bed for a long time. It was the nicest hospital I have ever seen in my life and if I got sick it is the hospital I would want to go to. I think the person that got my card will think that someone cares about them. I chose the pixie stick to give to the patient because it was big and sugary and people aren’t allergic to sugar. 

​Blueberry Moment 13852
For my last Blueberry Moment, I made cards for Ms. Kelley´s whole class. Ms. Kelley’s class is a special needs class at Mason Elementary. On the front of the card I wrote the student’s name and traced a stencil of a shape. Inside the card, I wrote a positive note like ¨you are amazing¨ and also traced a stencil of different designs. On the back of the card, I wrote From a Blueberry Ambassador in blue colored pencil.I did this because special needs students need something to encourage them. I also did it because I don’t think they get a lot of notes from other students at school. I hope that it makes them know someone is looking out for them.The day after I made the cards, when I got to school I put the baggie of cards with the Blueberry Card taped on it and went in the office and put it in Ms. Kelley’s mailbox before heading to my locker.

I bought a card for my teacher, Mrs. Putnam and also a $15 gift card for Panera Bread.She is a great teacher and I thought this would be a nice act of kindness to show her how much I appreciate her being my teacher.I know that that card made her day! She even said that she would like to paint the cover!

Blueberry Moment 13886
For my final Blueberry Moment, I donated some books off my shelf (that I don’t read anymore) to my first/second grade teacher named Ms. Warchuck. I figured that since I don´t read them anymore, it would be perfect to donate! They are a perfect level for those students.When I was a student in Ms. Warchuck´s class, she was a very kind and helpful to us, and that’s why she’s a special teacher to me.I hope that the kids will enjoy reading the books and love Ms. Warchuck´s class as much as I did!

Right before we returned to school from vacation, I made New Year’s Eve bookmarks for Mrs. Chappell-Kish’s students to make them cheer up for the new year. Also, because a lot of the kids are always asking for bookmarks from their teachers, so I thought it would be a nice thing to do. While the class was at gym, I went into their room and put a bookmark with a message on it I wrote so that when they returned from gym they all had a new bookmark I made for them.

Blueberry Moment 13859
For my last Blueberry Moment, my family and I went to the memory care home and we made snowmen outside of the windows of the residents. I chose this place because my great grandpa is there. It made him feel really loved. He was so excited and he was pounding on the window and desk trying to get our attention. The other people were inside their rooms staring out the window at us. It made him think of his old chalet because when he sold the chalet, a lot of people made a giant snowman and it made him think of that day.

The day we returned from Christmas vacation, I made chocolate chip cookies and brought them in for Mr. Dave, our school custodian. I put them on a paper plate with a card that said, “Mr. Dave, you are very kind and I wanted to do something for you. He is very kind because he always says kind things to us and he always offers to help when we need it. Then, I told him what the Blueberries are about and gave him a Blueberry Card. He looked at me and was crying. I felt amazing because I did something good and made someone happy. I told him that he could pass along an act of kindness and I know he will because he is always so nice.

Blueberry Moment 13876
For my second Blueberry Moment, I decided to help the Hurley Pediatric Center in Flint. I wanted to help Hurley because my friend, Sam, has a brother, Charlie, who has cancer and is receiving help from Hurley. He spends a lot of time there and that made me sad. He and other kids don’t have the time to do fun things because of treatments. I feel bad that they can’t be out, doing fun things and they are away from home and family, so I decided to help. First, my mom and I bought lots of fleece material. We thought it would help the kids to feel comfortable if they had a nice cozy blanket. I know I love anything cozy and warm. I made two fleece blankets and I hope it will help two kids feel comfortable away from home. Next, Charlie’s mom told us about poke boxes with prizes in them. The poke boxes are when kids have to get poked and when they have to get tested. The boxes have prizes in them which give the kids something to look forward to after being poked. So I picked out small puzzles, silly putty, little paint projects, and Starbucks gift cards. I know when I’m sick, art projects help me feel better. I hope it helps children at Hurley feel better. This project made me feel fortunate to be helping other kids who are hurting. I was proud when I made the blankets, they were a tough project! I was also proud when I gave allowance money for the poke box toys. I am thankful to be able to help kids feel better and be happy.

Blueberry Moment 13875
For my third Blueberry Moment, I decided to help kids who might feel anxious at school. I have felt anxious at school when I am stuck on something or can’t figure something out. When I am anxious I want something to squeeze or help me calm down. Something to help me relax. So that’s what I decided to make for Cook and Mason Elementary.I made a basket that has many different calming activities. In the basket, I put books about being present, a non-flame candle, stress ball, calming jar, paint bags, coloring books, a gratitude journal and a deck of yoga and calming card exercises. I picked these things because they help me relax, feel calm and know that everything will be ok.Putting this basket together made me feel good because I knew it would help kids relax and find help when they need it. Sometimes a calming activity is all someone needs to feel better. Sometimes kids have a lot of things they worry about. Sometimes we need help dealing with those feelings.Both principals were impressed and thankful. They were excited that they have something in their office to help kids who feel anxious or nervous. I am excited too. Knowing kids can have those feelings and learn how to deal with them.What I like best is knowing kids they will use these items even when I am no longer at Mason. I hope it helps kids relax, feel better, and know its ok to feel anxious… and know they are not in trouble if they do.

I made my teacher a card saying how much we appreciate her and love her as a friend. I was inspired because when we were wrapping up the school day doing our Positivity Project talking about this week’s positivity trait (gratitude), we connected it with the Blueberry Ambassador program. We talked about both projects, the cards that Blueberries give and pass on, and she told the class that she has given her students, parents, other teachers, strangers, and family members cards for a few years. What inspired me was when she said that in all the years of doing that, she hasn’t received even one Blueberry Card from her students. That inspired me to be the first. She definitely deserves it!​

Blueberry Moment 13842
I helped a kindergartner who was struggling with math. For about one and a half hours we sat down and did addition and subtraction. What inspired me is I love math. Another thing that inspired me is I’ve known him his whole life and he feels like my little cousin. We used flashcards, used money and Legos to count, and we did workbooks, and at the end he was rewarded with one of my Oreo candy canes.

Blueberry Moment 13840
During my recess time, I helped Mrs. Baker, our new librarian, set up the book fair for her first time at Mason Elementary. I was inspired when I heard Mrs. Baker say, “I don’t know how I’m going to do all this.” I love helping people and I love to read. I love libraries so much and they encourage me to keep reading, and I have attended many book fairs at school.

For my first Blueberry Moment, I loaded up logs from my woods into my mom’s car and took them to my grandparent’s house. They are getting old and need fire wood. They normally pay for their firewood and the guy they buy it from was way behind all the way into January. This is the first year, we have a log splitter at our house, so I thought it would be nice to give some logs to my grandparents. It made me feel cold but really good inside. After I loaded up the back of my mom’s car, she drove me to their house. I ran up to the front door and rang their doorbell. My grandma was so happy and surprised! My sister and I carried the wood onto their wood stand. My grandma and grandpa really appreciated it and loved having a warm fire that night! I gave them the Blueberry Card to pass on. 

Blueberry Moment 13897
My second Blueberry Moment was when I went to the nursing home to see my great grandpa. I made him a Christmas card and spent some time visiting with both him and my great grandma. I wanted to do this because it was the first Christmas that he would spend at a nursing home. It was also very hard on my great grandma. He does not really know where he is at, or remembers me that well. I did this on Christmas Eve because I thought it would make them happy. My great grandpa was happy, but didn’t make sense talking to me. I think it made more of a difference to great grandma. She enjoyed my company and loved that I thought of both of them at Christmas. I put the Blueberry Card on the plate of cookies and hope she can pass it on. 

Blueberry Moment 13898
My third Blueberry Card was used when I donated some food to my Catholic church to help Family Promise. Family Promise is helping homeless families have a place to stay. They were going to stay at our church in Goodrich. This was the first time our church did this. I was sitting at church and Deacon Ron was talking about Family Promise and the help that they needed. I looked at my mom and she knew what I was thinking. At the end of mass, I walked in the back to sign up. I signed up for graham crackers and tangerines. I went to Kroger a few days later and bought the graham crackers and tangerines. I took them to church and dropped them off for the families that would be staying there.Deacon Ron was very happy that I decided to help out. He told me thank you. Next time, I want to try to help serve the families when they stay there.

I always wondered if the delivery people ever got hungry or thirsty when they work. During the holiday season, they seem to be working extra hard delivering all the packages to people. I wanted to put snacks and water bottles on my porch for them. I left a note thanking them for all their hard work and let them know that they could help themselves if they were hungry or thirsty. I never saw them take the snacks but when I got home from school every day there was some missing! One day, the Blueberry Card was missing so I hope whoever took it pays it forward. Putting the snacks outside made me feel happy especially when they took a water or a snack.  

Blueberry Moment 13883
I noticed that my bus drives doesn’t wear gloves when he opens the door so many times in the cold, so I asked him about it. This gave me an idea for my third blueberry moment. My mom called the bus garage and got the names of all of the bus drivers at my school. We put together gloves and I wrote each of them a note. On Friday I asked my principal if I could leave a few minutes before the rest of the students to give the drivers their gloves while my mom took the pictures. 

​Blueberry Moment 13885
It was a cold Wednesday morning and I noticed that the garbage truck came by and I  saw thatmy neighbor’s garbage cans were still out so I wondered if I could bring them in. So I got my Blueberry Ambassador card and went to go bring my neighbors garbage cans up to his house. I rang the doorbell. I explained that I was a Blueberry Ambassador and all about what I was doing. He said it made his day. He shook my hand and we both said to each to have a nice day. I will do it again because it made me feel good and I was being helpful.

For my first Blueberry Moment, I decided to help my neighbor shovel his driveway. Last year, my mom was sick in the hospital and he helped us, so I decided that I must repay the deed. I think that he felt very appreciated and happy because of what I did for him because he usually
helps others all the time. It made me feel great to know that I helped him the way he helped us.​

Blueberry Moment 13865
For my second Blueberry Moment, I decided to give a Valentine’s gift to Mrs. Parks’ class. Mrs. Parks teaches students in the GISD program who are students around my age but have a difficult time doing simple tasks. They also have trouble talking. My teacher and Mrs. Parks have teamed up and every Friday some of us get to go to her class to help out. I visit them every Friday, and I like helping them learn their letter sounds, addition facts, reading with them, and some science activities.So, I decided that I should give them something back in return. I think it made them feel happy and appreciated. It made me feel happy inside to know that I had succeeded in making them happy. After I gave the card and treat to them, their teacher explained what kindness was and showed them the Blueberry Card. They decided that they could do something nice for somebody else, and they got to work right away.

Blueberry Moment 13867
For my third Blueberry Moment, I decided that I could help my neighbor by babysitting her kids for two hours. There have been so many snow days she is not able to get anything done with the kids there that she normally can do. She was very happy when I told her I could stay with her 5 year old daughter, Maya, and her 7 year old son, Mohammed. It made me feel happy to know that I had made my neighbors day better.

On Monday, I passed out hand warmers and gloves at the soup kitchen to the homeless because it is getting cold outside and I did not want all those people to get cold. All the homeless people felt grateful for what I did and they thanked me. The local news even interviewed me. I enjoyed serving the homeless. I was inspired to do this because my teacher took the Blueberry Ambassadors to the soup kitchen in December and we helped by making soap and sorting clothes. It felt great helping others.

During a snow day I had last week, I decided to clean off my book shelf from the books I no longer read. Some of them are below my level or at my level but I already read them. Today after school, my mom drove to Cummings Elementary and donated them to their students. My school has over a thousand books, so I wanted to donate them to a school that doesn’t have as many. I am doing this because a lot of kids don’t have the opportunity to learn how to read and this gives them chance to take a book home and learn how to read.

Blueberry Moment 13863
This is my last Blueberry Card and I love this program. So, after school I gave my teacher, Mrs. Wendt, flowers and a thank you card. She is a wonderful teacher, super funny, very nice and has been the best teacher ever. Mrs. Wendt has shown me the wonders of giving back by helping at the soup kitchen and also helping others in the classroom who don’t learn very easy. It was fun and rewarding, and I am very thankful for my fourth grade teacher!

For my second Blueberry Moment, I shoveled the driveway for my grandad and grandma. They had a lot of snow in their driveway after the big snow storm that we had on Wednesday. I didn’t want them to get stuck in all the snow and their shoes wouldn’t get all snowy before they go into the house. It has been very windy and even I got cold so I didn’t want them to have to do it. It made my grandad and grandma very happy and made their day.

I am really lucky to have Miss. Melinda as my bus driver. I get on the bus at East Middle School everyday and Miss. Melinda is there every morning greeting me with a smile.  That got me thinking, the bus drivers in Grand Blanc do a great job of getting kids to school safely everyday. I decided that they deserved to have something nice done for them.  So, I had my dad go over to Dawn Donuts on the way to school to pick up some donuts for the bus drivers. When we got to East Middle School we went to the teachers’ lounge where the bus drivers hangout before they leave to pick up elementary kids.  We attached the Blueberry Ambassadors card to a note that basically said thanks for being great. We told the bus drivers to come and help themselves.

Blueberry Moment 13846
This random act of kindness happened unexpectedly in January, just after my birthday. I was having lunch with my dad at IHOP, which happens to be one of my favorite restaurants. Near the end of my meal, my dad and I saw two ladies, one wearing a red hat and the other wearing a white hat. They looked like they could use our help, so dad went over to the waitress and when they weren’t looking he paid for their meal. I wasn’t expecting to do a random act of kindness at the moment and I didn’t have my Blueberry Cards on me. So, I improvised and my dad helped me write this on a piece of paper to give to them: “From the Blueberry Ambassador Program: This is a random act of kindness. Pass it on.” I felt warm inside, like a nice hug. Even though my act of kindness was anonymous, it made it feel even better because knowing that you helped someone is better than fame or fortune.

Blueberry Moment 13845
I love books! Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. It keeps me busy. It keeps me from getting bored, and it’s fun. So, in this act of kindness I decided that other people should have the privilege to love reading as much as I do. Today, my mom and I were at Target. So, I put a five dollar bill in Dog Man: Brawl of the Wildand a two dollar bill in a book called Captain Underpants and thePerilous Plot of Professor Poopypants.I put a Blueberry Card in each book too. This way, some kids will buy these books and when they get home and open them up it will make their reading experience that much more special. Also, because it’s not every day that you get your book paid for by someone you don’t even know.

Blueberry Moment13894 In December, my Blueberry Ambassador group went to the Soup kitchen to help out. I noticed there were many people who needed help with getting clothes and food. Since the weather has been getting colder, I decided to donate my coat and some shoes that I don’t use any more to the soup kitchen. I wanted other kids who went their my age to have what they needed.
