Sharing helps another student

A month ago, at school, my best friend Nical, had forgotten her book for her Religious Education class. Because she was forgetting it every time she had a lesson, I decided to give my book to her, because if I hadn’t given it to her she would have to take an absence. As the time went by, our teacher saw that I didn’t have a book. So she sent me out of the class and she told me to go to the head teacher’s office. When I had been to the head teacher’s office she was’t there, so I went back. After that I went again to the class and the teacher told me to come inside and I won’t get an absence because I’m a very good and responsible girl.

Doing the right thing

I have done a lot of good things. I help poor people, give money to poor people, help grandmothers to cross the street. But the best was a day when I was walking. Next to me were two people on a motorbike, the second person hold a bag. The bag fell down and when I went to get the bag, I looked inside and there was a lot of money in it. e bag and I went to pick up the bag. I looked in it and I saw a lot of money. I took it to my house and showd it to my mother. She told me to take it to the police. I went to the police and one policeman gave me a lot of congratulations and also give me 25% of the money.

I was so happy because I know it was a very good thing.

There is always something you can do…

Every day people have accidents on roads, and a lot of them are young children who ride a motorbike (moto).

One day I was working in the street when a boy lost control of his moto and fell down and hurt his leg. I saw him and quickly went to help him. I couldn’t do anything because I had left my mobile phone at home and his mobile phone had broken. I was very nervous and I didn’t know what to do. And nobody lived in that place. In the end, I picked the boy up and put him on his moto and I drove it to the hospital.

Then the doctor asked the boy for his father’s phone number and in 10 minutes his family was with him.

He was so pleased with me and a few days later he called me and invited me to come to his home.

Sharing with others

One day while I was walking near a church I saw a woman with her baby asking for winter clothes because she didn’t have any. From that day on I decided to go to church every week to give clothes for the poor people. One week, as I was going to the church, I saw two women coming toward me. They thanked me for giving them clothes. The feelings I had could not be described with words. The satisfaction and the feeling that I helped a person made me feel better.

I try every day to convince more people to give money to all who need it. But its not only money because always it’s the intention that matters.

A Red Cross volunteer

Everybody says they take good actions and try for the best. But who really expresses an interest and helps out?

A long time ago I was a volunteer for the Red Cross and I took lessons to see how I can save people the future. I learned a lot of things there that are very important…for example, I learned exactly what I must do in critical situations and how I must deal with the situations.

The Red Cross is one of the best associations we have where we can learn this information and I don’t know what we will do if it doesn’t exist.

This is my good action that I will do for my life and I wish all people help by volunteering.
