Blueberry Moment 16401
I don’t remember when I did this but on this day, my mom was sick and my dad was sleeping. My pet guinea pigs cage smelled horrible and no one was even caring. So, I thought and thought and so I cleaned the cage. It was very clean once it was done, and my dad started waking up and remembering that he didn’t feed marshmallow (pet guinea pig) but I told him I fed him because Jack was watching YouTube. Once my mom was better, she was very worried cause she didn’t do his cage. But it was fine because I did it. My mom said, “Thank you, Hana,” and then she hugged me. I thought that was a good deed so I felt so proud of myself.
Blueberry Moment 16402
On the day when all the leaves fell from our tree, I didn’t like that because all the leaves were wet. So, then my mom asked us if we could do the leaves, we said yes. We didn’t just want to do it for money, we wanted to do it for family help. So, we helped her and did the leaves. Then, there were no leaves on the sidewalk and I thought my family did a pretty great job!
Blueberry Moment 16403
My mom was helping me make Christmas scrunchies for market day. All the dishes were a mess. I couldn’t believe this, and I felt like if my mom was going to get mad and sad that no one would do the dishes. So, I went to the sink and cleaned all the dishes for her and the water was really hot though but I still did this for her. When she was done making two Christmas scrunchies, she sighed and was going to the sink. Once she went to the sink, all the plates and yucky stuff were gone. She was so surprised who could have done this for her. I told her I did because you looked exhausted from doing the dishes. She told me she thought it was a Blueberry Moment so that is why I wrote this. I hope she was very happy.
Blueberry Moment 16431
When I was at this fast and food place, I saw somebody having trouble with a machine so I helped him out and I saw that the flavor that he wanted was out and I had that flavor he wanted so I gave half of the flavor to him and he was astonished that I would take my time and help him out and after that I saw him opening a door for someone and that’s when I felt that I passed on the Blueberry Card.
Blueberry Moment 16432
When I was walking in my neighborhood, I saw an old lady that had dropped a quarter. At that moment, I was far away to get that quarter for her but I still wanted to get it for her so I ran as fast as I could and I got the quarter and I gave it to her. She then said oh thank you but you know you didn’t have to get it for me you were far away. I replied well I wanted to and she was astonished that I wanted to help an old lady like her and then I gave her the Blueberry Card.
Blueberry Moment 16430
An old lady was moving into the neighborhood and she had tons of packages that she needed to go into her home. I saw nobody was helping her so I went to her and asked if I could help and she immediately responded yes! So one by one, I carried her packages or boxes for her she then offered me money but I told her I don’t need it I just want you to take this Blueberry Card and pass on the kindness and she responded yes!

Blueberry Moment 16401
It was just a normal day and we were getting ready to leave school. I noticed that Mason had forgot his water bottle, so I picked it up.

Blueberry Moment 16402
My mom and dad went to Sam’s Club last Saturday. At the entrance of the store, there are two people from Salvation Army collecting money for families in need.

Blueberry Moment 16403
Today after my dance class, we were coming home to drop off my friend, but we made a quick stop at Speedway. I asked my mom if we can go there when we got in Speedway, my mom bought a drink for my friend, but I remembered that he has a little sister back home. So, I asked my mom to buy her one too, so she did not feel left out.
Blueberry Moment 415
Me and my mom were at Sam’s Club and we were walking in the bread section. We were just messing around and shopping then I was like mom do you know whose glove that is? My mom said no I do not. So, I said can I go get it she said yes. I was walking with the glove asking people if it was theirs. They all said nope not mine. So we got to the checkout line and nobody had claimed the glove yet. I saw a lady that worked at Sam’s Club and I told my mom and she said go give the glove to her to see if she can put it in the lost and found. I walked over to the worker and gave her the glove and she said I will put it in the lost and found. I felt good the rest of the day.
Blueberry Moment 416
I was outside, sledding having a good time and I saw this lady shoveling her driveway. She started to grab her back and was struggling to shovel her driveway. Then, I hear my mom call my name so I walk up to my house and my mom says time to go and I said I’m going to go shovel that older ladies driveway. So, I walked over to her house and I shoveled her driveway she said thank you so much and walked in her house and was in her house for a couple minutes and came back out and tried to pay me and I said know thank you. She said thank you so so sooo much. I said you’re welcome and have a safe and wonderful day and the lady said bye. Then, I walked back to my house. I felt good the rest of the day.

I was at school and it was a half day because it was a couple days before Thanksgiving. We were doing this thing called friendsgiving. Friendsgiving is were a few grades come together and eat breakfast. So we were all finding seats and I was sitting with my friends then I saw this kid that was starting to cry cause nobody wanted to sit with him. So, I went to sit with the kid and he got super excited to sit with somebody so we had breakfast and had a good time. Once the other kids noticed we were having fun, they came and sat with me and the other kid named Mason. I thought he was funny and it made me happy to make mason happy.
Blueberry Moment 16401
One of my Blueberry Moments was when I was walking to school with my mom. I opened the door while I was walking through the door so that the door would not slam in the other person’s face. It was crazy how just doing a simple deed can be big too. So just doing a simple deed can be just as good as something big. Doing an easy deed can light up someone’s day. If you do something nice for them it makes them want to do something in return.
Blueberry Moment 16402
One of my Blueberry Moments was my mom and I donated cookies after the holiday program. You could have cookies and hot chocolate after the program. Even though I am gluten free and I can’t have cookies, we still donated cookies to help out anyways for other people because we cared. I have a good feeling about donating some cookies I know that whoever gets those cookies is going to be happy and it will put them in the holiday spirit.
Blueberry Moment 16403

Blueberry Moment 425I let my sister use the remote even though I really wanted to pick what we watched at home. I had hogged the remote all day too. My sister enjoyed the fact that I stopped hogging the remote too. I felt good about doing it too sense I was kind of being mean in a way. My sister was thankful about it to. But I was also thankful in a way.
Blueberry Moment 426
I helped my dad pick up the sticks at home even though I didn’t want to and I was “busy” on my Chromebook. I felt good, because my dad is 67 and he has back issues. I could tell my dad was grateful. I felt happy about it. I mean, he’s 67 after all!
Blueberry Moment 16436
My mom asked me to unload the dishwasher and mom told Sydney to load the dishwasher and, so Sydney went to play games. When I was done unloading the dishwasher, I didn’t tell Sydney that I was done and I loaded the dishwasher for her. To be honest, she didn’t even realize that I loaded the dishwasher for her. When mom got home and asked if we did the dishwasher Sydney said no but I said yes. I felt very happy after that.
Blueberry Moment 16437
It was fall and there were a lot of leaves on the ground. My dad was outside raking the leaves and he asked if anybody would help him, but nobody said yes. I said no at first but then I realized he needed help and that it would take him a long time to do it by himself. So, I thought about it and I decided to help him. Even though he said that we could have Wendy’s after that. It didn’t really matter that I got Wendy’s after. It just matters that I helped him.
Blueberry Moment 16438
It was winter and it was really cold outside, as you know mail people go around to every house even if it’s snowing, raining or so hot they go to every person’s house and give them mail. So, I wrote a letter to the mail person thank you for all that he or she has done. I wasn’t there when the mailman took it but I’m guessing he or she felt really good inside, and I felt really good inside to forgiving him or her the note.

My first Blueberry Moment is when I got home from school. I forgot that I have to do my blueberry deeds. I could not think of any blueberry deeds to do then I thought that my grandpa and that a couple weeks ago he had back surgery and he needed help with some things that he usually does like to pick up something from the ground so when he was leaving helped him clean off his windshield and I was not asked to do it I did it on my own.
Blueberry Moment 16443
My second deed is when I was home at my house. I figured I would do something nice for people. There was snow outside and are driveway was really covered in snow and my mom was making dinner and my dad was not home so I thought I should shovel the driveway and I did not want money and it was not a chore I just did it to be nice.
Blueberry Moment 16444
I used my last Blueberry Moment on my brothers because they were with me and I had $50 to spend. I let them pick out anything that they have been wanting. I ended up letting them use all of my money but I knew it was just the right thing to do.
Blueberry Moment 16449
I wrote a letter to my six grandparents, the cards each had a sticker, and said that I love them and I hope they love this card too. I sent the cards a couple days after I made them. The next day, I got a phone call from my grandma. She said she loved the card and really appreciated it that made me so happy that I was smiling for the rest of the day. A couple days after that my mom told me that my gram (my other grandma) put on Facebook that she loved the card too! That made me even happier that both of them loved the card!!
Blueberry Moment 16448
I made two care packages for my cousins. One is in boot camp for the army, the other one is stationed out of the country. I put lots of things in there but some of the things that stuck out to me were the stuffed army and air force pilot. Some of the other things were snacks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. I hope this makes them feel loved and lets them know that people are thinking about him at home. I think that they will love it and feel loved!
Blueberry Moment 16410
I wrote a letter to my sister and put it in her lunch box. It says that she is the best sister and that I love her. That day, after school she came to me and said thank you for the note. I was a little surprised at first, so I asked if our mom told her to do, it she said no. As soon as she said that I felt very happy! Plus she gave me a hug and she doesn’t do it often. That made me feel really good to make her feel loved and thought of!
Blueberry Moment 16451
One night, my dad got home late from work and I could tell he was really tired. But he wanted to make sure we had a warm fire in the fireplace. He had to get all dressed in his warm winter clothes to get firewood way back on our property. It was very cold and dark. I decided I should help him. I told him to wait for me. I quickly got my warm winter clothes on and followed him out the door. We made three trips back and forth, it took a while, but we were able to get a lot of wood. My dad was so happy that I helped him, and he told me thank you and gave me a hug. It felt good helping my dad.
Blueberry Moment 16452
One day out of the blue, my mom decided it was time to get the Christmas decorations out. This is a big task; we have a lot of decorations. Plus, they are not easy to get to, they are all up in our attic. My siblings started complaining because they know it is a lot of work to get all the decorations out of the attic. My mom was starting to get upset, she loves Christmas and she just wanted us to be a part of the decorating process. I felt bad for my mom, my siblings were being brats. So, I stepped in and told them we needed to help her, if we all worked together, we could get it done faster and mom would be happy. They agreed, the five of us lined up by the attic and down the stairs like an assembly line. It was great, were done in no time and my mom was very happy. It sure felt good to help my mom and work together with my siblings.
Blueberry Moment 16453
My family consists of nine people, two adults, seven kids and a dog. We have a pretty busy house. Our dog, Aurora, can be quite the handful, she is two years old and still has a lot of energy. My mom really worries about her because she gets into everything, she had to have emergency surgery a few months ago because she ate part of a football glove. My mom was recently in the hospital for a couple days and my dad stayed with her. My grandparents stayed with us at our house. My mom kept saying how nervous she was to leave the dog, worried she would get into something. I didn’t want my mom to have to worry about Aurora while she was in the hospital. I decided to make a list of all the things my mom does with the dog and I told my siblings we had to assure our mom we would take care of the dog. So, when our mom called to check on us, I got on the phone and told mom we were all going to help with the dog, and we did. My parents were happy we were extra responsible and helped more with Aurora.
Blueberry Moment 16401
I opened the door for someone because their hands were full. They looked like they were having a bad day so is smiled at them. They smiled back at me and that made my day.

Blueberry Moment 16457
When I was walking through the hallway on my way out of school, I saw that my old teacher was having a really rough time, she looked stressed and frustrated. When I got home that night, I thought about the teacher and how tough things are for her. So that afternoon, I came up with the idea to write her a letter, why I’m very thankful for her. I wrote the letter and left it for her. I saw her the next day and she said thank you for letter and she gave me a hug. She told me she had a rough week and she really needed something like this. My letter came at the right time to really help some joy to her stressful week.
Blueberry Moment 16458
My neighbor recently found out she has cancer and I’m sure she felt sad and scared. I wanted to try to do one small thing that might make her feel better. She has two kids that are pretty young. I wanted to know what food she likes and I decided to make chocolate brownies. A few days later, I had brownies, an ornament, and a Christmas card and I went over and knocked on the door. She opened the door and said, “you shouldn’t have,” she was very excited and asked if I could have one and I said no because I wanted her and her family to enjoy the brownies! She realized that I really cared about her and kids. That made feel very good inside that I could bring a little bit of joy.
Blueberry Moment 16459
I volunteered to go to the Brookdale Assisted Living and share my special talent, music. I went there to play piano. My sister passed out candy while I introduced myself. When I was there, I was very nervous in a way but the people who live there said, “we don’t care about mistakes we want to hear YOU play for us.” They all seemed to like visitors to see them. I thought they might not get a lot of visitors. I played five songs for them. When I was done, they said I did a good job and they had lots of smiles on their faces (sometimes they even sang along with the music as I played). I felt very joyful because I knew they enjoyed these songs and they made me happy because of those smiles.
Blueberry Moment 16460
When my family, my grandma and grampa’s friends and I were about to enter a restaurant, I held the door open for nine people to be exact and they ALL said thank you. That is when I said you’re welcome. Then, we went and sat down and enjoyed our food. I gave my Blueberry Card to my grandma and grandpa and they said what is this and, I said it is a card for doing good deeds and to pass it on.
Blueberry Moment 16461
When my sister had to pay $30 for a t-shirt for something going on at her school, and she only had $15. I was going to give her the other $15 but she said it was fine and I thought that was pretty nice of me and my sister and my mom gave her the other $15. So, it was kind of a win-win. When I gave her a Blueberry Card, she asked what it was and I said it’s a Blueberry Card to pass on random acts of kindness.
Blueberry Moment 16462
When we were babysitting someone that we know, we were playing outside football. He fell when we played football a lot and I kept helping him up and he said (thank you) every time, and I said your welcome and that just made me happy every time he said that but I didn’t get a chance to give him a Blueberry Card, but I think that he would have been like, what is that and I would have explained it to him and I think that was a random act of kindness.
Blueberry Moment 16470
What I did was I made boiled eggs for my family. This is an act of kindness since I did something for someone because they did not want to do. Why this is important is because if I did not do this act of kindness they would‘ve had to do make boiled eggs by themselves. Also, how they responded was they said thank you.
Blueberry Moment 16469
What I did was I help my sister with her homework. How this is kind is because it is considered as helping someone be successful when they are struggling. How I felt after I did the act of kindness is I felt more helpful. Why this is important is that if I did not help, her she would have been struggling for a long time and then she would not be happy and not do her homework. Then when she does not get her homework done she gets in trouble.
Blueberry Moment 16470
I helped my friend on his assignment. This is an act of kindness since I helped someone struggling succeed. How this act of kindness was important is because if I did not help him, he would be raising hand longer or he would put his hand down and struggle on the assignment. How I felt after I did the act of kindness was happy since I helped someone.
Blueberry Moment 16477
For my grandmas 85th birthday, I made a special card for her. It had lots of flowers and it was very colorful. I know she really likes scratch-off lottery tickets, so I used my own $5 to buy her a ticket. So, I scratched them all of for her. Then she won $10, and she was very happy.
Blueberry Moment 16476
My mom and I decided to donate to Samaritan’s Purse this Christmas. We donated three shoe boxes full of toys for kids in need. I used my own $10 to buy toys for a boy that was age range 2-4. Today my mom and I dropped the shoe boxes off at a local church. I hope the kid have a good Christmas.
Blueberry Moment 16475
Every year we sponsor a family for Christmas through FISH. This year the family had a boy age 7, a girl age 4 and a girl age 2. I helped my mom buy toys for all the kids. We delivered the gifts and food to their house. The parents were thankful for our kind deed. I hope the kids enjoy the toys I picked out for them and they have a good Christmas.
Blueberry Moment 16480
I went to Kroger with my mom and my oldest sister. I saw a lady with her son drop a thing of strawberries that fell out of the container and immediately went to help.

Blueberry Moment 16429
My sister and I were sitting in between two doors at Kohl’s and there was someone coming so I opened the door for them then my sister opened the other door.

Next I saw seven more people coming an opened the door again and my sister did the on the door!
Blueberry Moment 16428
My oldest sister and I went to a Michigan State basketball game with are grandma and grandpa and they were shooting the tee shirts during half time.

Blueberry Moment 16481
I gave my teacher some at parent teacher conferences cookies because she had to deal with me. I have another reason she is such a good teacher. I do not like to brag but she is the all-time best. Teacher in the hole district so she deserved them.
Blueberry Moment 16483

I attended my friend’s birthday party at the Longway Planetarium. After a few hours there, we decided to leave. Then as we started leaving and as I was walking out the door, the child next to me dropped his goodie bag. His goodies fell all over the ground and he started crying. I wanted to help him, so I picked up all of his goodies off the ground. I told him to just keep mine and I’ll keep the things that I was picking up. The child’s parents were elated and thanked me for my act of kindness. This made me feel really happy since I had put a smile on the child’s face.
Blueberry Moment 16485
I left for my dental appointment at 3:00 p.m. My appointment was at 3:15, but I waited and waited until 3:22, however nobody came to call me since the office was running behind schedule. While I was waiting, I saw someone struggling to come inside the door with a wheelchair. So, before the receptionist could open the door, I got up and opened the door for him. The man in the wheelchair was thrilled with my behavior and appreciated my manners. He also told me that my mother has raised me very well. He continued to tell many other people in the dental office about my kindness which made me feel very happy.
Blueberry Moment 16486
I went with my aunt to my cousin’s school because it was the occasion of Diwali. I was helping my aunt to teach my cousin’s class how to paint Dias. Next when they were dry, we added glitter to them. However, as one child was putting his Dia on a tray he dropped it on the floor and it broke into shards. He started crying and I felt very sad for him. I went up to him and gave him mine and told him he could. So, then he gave me a hug and said thank you. This made me feel happy as I had made his day.
