BLUEBERRY AMBASSADOR MOMENTS
Grand Blanc Perry Innovation Center, coordinators Melanie Brock and Kendall Gaskins
So I went over to my aunt’s house to babysit for her because she just had a baby. Well I was there I watched my younger cousin who is five so she could take care of the baby. I played with him like catching football. I was there for about an hour before I had to go.
My second deed was I heard that my mom was talking about the car being dirty. So, the next day I got the vacuum and my sister helped me find the extension cord to plug in the vacuum my mom was surprised I gave her a Blueberry Card and I was happy.
I was making a snow fort and I saw my elderly neighbor Mr. Bill shoveling the snow so I went over and asked Mr. Bill if I could shovel the driveway for him. He told me yes and I was shivering when I started because it was so cold out. But when I was done, I gave him the Blueberry Card.
For my first Blueberry Card, I helped my mom friend’s mom walk across the road. I gave her the Blueberry Card after we got to the other side.
When I was walking to the park, I saw lots of bottles on the grass. So, I picked them up and found a recycling bin and set my second Blueberry Card on top of the recycling bin.
I thought for my last Blueberry Card that I would do something for my dad because he was working so hard and he got into a car crash and hurt his arm a little. So, I did was got some chocolates and placed them where my dad was sleeping and taped my last Blueberry Card on top of the chocolates boxes.
My mom and I went to Sam’s club, and were looking for a Blueberry Moment to do. We had brought some chocolate with us. That is when we decided that we would give the chocolate to a worker at Sam’s. So, we gave the chocolate to a worker and she was very happy.
My family and I were hunting for somebody to give a Christmas present to. So, when we went to Olive Garden, we brought a brand new book along with us. Then, we gave the book to our waitress!
For Christmas, my family and I were looking for more people to give Christmas presents to, so we decided on our bus driver! We surprised him the next morning with a well-thought out Christmas present gift!
I went to target to buy stuff for the kids in the hospital with my hockey teammates. It was for University of Michigan hospital. We would buy things that they could play in the bed. I stuck a Blueberry Card in one of the gifts.
I helped my youngest brother who has down syndrome with his therapy. He always does better when I am there to help. We went through his flashcards, and played hockey in the basement with him.
I was at hockey tryouts and a boy came in crying. He was very nervous to tryout because he didn’t know anyone. He told his mom he wanted to leave and I went over and started talking to him. I took him into the locker room where my spot was and waited with him as he got dressed and ready. He made it all the way through tryouts and out of six goalies there, he was the best one. He ended up making our team.
For my first Blueberry Card, I went bell ringing. I went to Kroger to do it I got a card put my Blueberry Card in it and some money in it. I was sure that they were going to love it. And I wondered what good deed they were going to pass it on to.
One day, my mom and I were out shopping at Walmart. There was an old lady in front of us in line and she was checking out and she asked how much it was for the grapes and apples. The cashier gave her the price and she said that she could not afford it and to put them back on the shelf. So, my mom and I were next the lady left and my mom said we will pay for the grapes and apples. We had the cashier bag them separately. We finished checking out. My mom had me go give the bag to the lady. She was so happy that she had tears in her eyes and hugged me. It made me feel good inside.
I brought in canned food items to donate to help families that are in need. I put a Blueberry Card in the bag to give them and to pass it on I wonder the look that will be on their faces. I felt good to do that and to be a Blueberry Ambassador.
For my first deed, I went through some toys that I didn’t want and put them in a bag. And put them in a American Red Cross bin.
For my second deed, I emailed my mom how special she was and why I love her. When I got home I gave her the Blueberry Card.
For my third deed, my grandma and I made blankets. My mom and I tied the extra fabric to make little toys. We gave the blankets and toys to the humane society we
gave the blankets/mats to the dogs and the toys to the cats.
For my first Blueberry Moment, I saw this old man trying to put shopping carts away at Meijer and it looked like it was hard for him. So, I asked him if I could help and he said shore so I did. Then I gave him my first Blueberry Card.
My second Blueberry Moment was when I helped my mom get the ice and snow off the driveway and the car because I could tell she was struggling and needed help at home. Then I gave her my second Blueberry Card.
My third Blueberry Moment was when I cleaned mine and my brother’s bathroom because it was dirty and I wanted to help my parents. Then I gave my parents my last Blueberry Card.
My first Blueberry Moment was when I was going to the store and we got our groceries and a man was pushing all the shopping carts. I thought I could take some of the carts and help him push the carts into the building. I also gave the man a Blueberry Card and told him to please pass the card on while doing something kind for someone else.
One day, I went ringing at Walmart with my mom and there were so many people that wanted to donate money. People are so generous; one man asked if he could donate as much money as he wanted and he donated $30.
One day, my mom said she didn’t need help making dinner to my dad and so I just came up and asked what can I do and started to work on making dinner. I told my mom to go and do something else and so I finished making dinner. My mom looked so surprised when I told her to go and do something else. She thanked me and asked if there was anything else that I could do.
We were in Walmart and a man dropped his money. I went to go give it to him. It was five dollars and he told me to keep it but I said no you can keep your money and I gave him the Blueberry Card.
We were at McDonald’s and I had a cheeseburger and I don’t like those so when we were driving, there was a homeless man under the bridge. I asked my mom if I can give the burger to the homeless man. She said yes and when I gave it to him, he said thank you and I gave him a Blueberry Card.
I was in the indoor pool and I was swimming and there was a seven year old who couldn’t swim and was in a deep part. I saw him when I went underwater. When I saw that nobody was getting him, I swam over and got him out. It was six feet deep and I could not even touch but I got him and brought him back up. I told his dad what happened and he told me thank you. I gave him the Blueberry Card.
On Christmas morning, I went straight to see what I had gotten. After I opened the presents, I opened the stockings. It was money, $10 to be exact. At nearly the end of the day, I realized that kids and other people in hospitals can’t enjoy this Christmas, or even any day at home. So, the next day I went to a charity for the Hurley Children’s Hospital and donated all the money I had. I knew that it was a small donation, but it would definitely make a difference. I learned something that day. It’s not the money that counts, it’s the kindness that does.
When I was at my sport’s place, I saw an elderly person having some trouble taking his stuff out of his locker. So, I went straight to him and helped take his stuff out, put the lock away, and opened the door for him. That was also a really small difference. But small things can have a big impact.
I was going to get the mail for my dad one morning. But then I saw a trash bin toppled over with some things flying away in the wind. So, I went and put all the trash in the bin and put it back up so it was back to normal. Then I went inside, took some tape and a Blueberry Card, and went outside. I was going to tape it on the bin but the owner was taking it in. So, I could not give it to him.
One day after school, when I was going pick up my brother a show him my new watch he got in the car. I showed him my watch he was like wow that’s cool so that night I ordered him one!!
One day, I went to get groceries with my mom I noticed that all of the carts were outside so I went and got some for random people.
One day, my step dad was at a meeting late at night so he couldn’t shovel the driveway. I shoveled for him. I did it because I didn’t want him to shovel late at night
When my brother, sister, dad and I were at Sam’s club, I told them I would take care of their trash for a weekend and gave them my Blueberry Card!
I saw that our bathroom was a little dirty so I wiped down the counters and cleaned the sinks and put things where they needed to go
My dad is going to Israel so he needs clothes to be washed and dried so I did his laundry for him.
It was a snowy day and the driveway was covered in snow. So, without my parents asking me, I shoveled the whole drive way. Then gave them a Blueberry Card.
I sacrificed my time for playing outside to go inside and watch Mickey Mouse with my little sister to help my dad out. I gave him a Blueberry Card.
I gave candy to someone to be kind. I knew they weren’t feeling the greatest so to make them feel better, I gave them their favorite candy.
I gave a Blueberry Card to my teacher because our class had pi day in school so we ate pie but there was one problem. Our class hamster, Polly, was on the table where the pies were going to be, so I moved Polly so that he didn’t get pie on him. It sort of made me feel good because that day, we had a guest teacher so she didn’t know to move the hamster and when I did, I knew my teacher wasn’t there to see it so that’s why it made me feel good.
During the winter, when we got a lot of snow, I realized that the neighborhood was having some struggles with getting out of their driveways. So, I walked across the road and started shoveling their driveway. The neighbors that I shoveled for didn’t really like us so it made me feel good because if they knew I shoveled their driveway it might make them like us a little more.
For the holidays, my mom really likes stuff to be neat and clean when our family comes over. So, during this Christmas, she had to run and get some food. So, while she was gone I cleaned the window sills. My mom did not find out I did it until she got home and my brother told her. This deed made me happy because it’s not like I wanted to do it at first then when she left I really ceased the moment and cleaned for her.
Hunter, Conner and I went bell ringing for Salvation Army on December 8 at Kroger. The good deed I did was I gave twenty dollars to the red Salvation Army bucket so that they can help eliminate homelessness and give food and shelter to people who need it. I also took my time to ring my bell to get people’s attention so that they also give money to Salvation Army to help their charity.
I had some Shopkins that were from last year when I liked them. A girl on my bus
really likes Shopkins and always brings them on the bus and talks about them. I knew that she wants to collect them all, so I decided to give her a Christmas present the Shopkins. When I gave them to her, she was so happy and filled with joy. She had a big smile on her face and she said thank you. I felt good to see her happy because I was the one who made her so happy and it just made me feel good.
Vivian and I wanted to write what we liked about each student and give one out to each kid. Vivian and I got it done in one recess. We were proud of what we have done.
It was a very busy morning because me and my sisters had to get ready for swim. My mom had to get in the shower and I was all done with getting ready so I made breakfast for my sisters my mom. And then she was very happy.
Elissa and I signed up for ring the bells at Kroger but she was sick so me and my family rang the bells for an hour a Kroger to get money. We raised around $50 in the bucket.
It was a Saturday morning and we were getting ready to go to church. We made cookies and went around to people who are lonely to give them a visit, sing and give them the cookies we made.
My first random act of kindness was I went to an older lady’s house in our neighborhood to rake her leaves. She had so many leaves in her yard! I decided to rake her yard to help her out. Peyton and I started raking, and it was really fun because it made us feel happy and good that we were doing this.
My second random act of kindness was when I decided to shovel my piano teacher’s driveway. She was gone on vacation, and I thought her driveway could be shoveled. My mom and I went to her house and shoveled. We left the Blueberry Card in her mailbox with a note.
I decided to do something for my family. On Saturday I made a waffle, banana and orange juice for them. I put a Blueberry Card on a stand in the middle of the table. Then I watched them eat my meal!
My first deed was ringing the bells at Kroger for the Salvation Army. We rang the bells to raise money. It was fun knowing we did something nice. I did this deed with Hunter C. and Sophie.
My second deed I did was making a card. I wrote to Sandy, Sandy is one of my daycare providers. The reason I made a card for her is because she has cancer and I wanted to cheer her up!
For my last Blueberry Card, I welcomed our neighbors with some homemade cupcakes. My parents and I dropped them off at their house and toured their new home.
Before Winter break, I gave my bus driver a card saying, “Thank you for keeping me and my friends safe on the bus.” I told him how good of a bus driver he is. He protects us from harm.
I wrote on a google doc to everyone, saying how they are funny, kind, nice, special, or how awesome they really are.
I wrote my teacher, Mrs.Brock, a note. I said thank you for taking care of me for all the times I have messed up. Thank you for not giving up on me.
McKenna’s Beauty Bar is an organization a girl who has cancer started. I decided to donate to it by giving an eyeshadow palette and a lip palette. I taped a Blueberry Card to the palette’s and gave them to the office so they could give them to Mckenna. I hope that she loves them.
I gave compliments and chocolate to my class because they are very hard workers. They try their best at school. I gave my teacher a compliment and a king size Reese’s because she loves them. I stuck the Blueberry Card in with the Reese’s for Mrs. Brock to pass on.
For my last Blueberry Card, I decided to do something for my bus driver. Since Valentine’s Day was coming up, I gave my bus driver a card telling him thank you for everything he does. He does a lot for our community by driving us home every day. I stuck the Blueberry Card in the card for him to pass on.
For my first Blueberry Moment, I shoveled my grandparents driveway and brushed snow off of their cars so they could see when they are driving then I gave my Blueberry Card to them.
For my second Blueberry Moment, I read with my brother and helped him with his reading homework and then I gave my Blueberry Card to him.
For my last Blueberry Moment, I cleaned me and my brothers bathroom so my parents didn’t have to do it then I gave the card to my parents.
At my parent’s restaurant, an elderly man had ordered food on the phone and had parked his car to pick up his food. Instead of having him to walk in, I brought the food out to him.
My brother and I were walking home and our next-door neighbor’s trash and garbage cans were all over their lawn. My brother and I cleaned the boxes up and stacked them neatly in the trash can. The neighbors never knew we were the ones who cleaned up.
My best friend, Sophie, and I stayed in for recess. We wrote individual notes to everyone saying what’s special about each of them. We had fun writing them even though it took the whole recess. We felt good doing good things.
One day, when I was outside playing in the snow at my grandparent’s house, I grabbed a shovel and moved the snow out of the sidewalk and put it to the side. That helped out my grandpa a lot when he got out of work and my grandma when she went to go run errands.
One day, when we were throwing my dad a surprise party, my mom needed help cleaning the house. I helped her clean the house when she needed my help and I also helped her by keeping my brother out of everything that was clean and neat.
When we went to tech class, I saw that there were some computer mice on the floor and I decided to pick them up without Mrs. LaHaie telling me to. After class, some people had put their computer mice and headphones on the floor when we went to line up and so I put their mice and headphones in the right spot they were supposed to go in.
On pi day, we were about to leave from school when the guest teacher told the people who brought pies to go get them. But when we were watching one of the videos, Sophie had dropped her pie, so the guest teacher gave Sophie the rest of the apple pie. Instead of getting mad I let Sophie have it.
