Help others. What I did before is raise 175 dollars for a man because he didn't have a heater or a bicycle. I did this because I love other people instead of myself. 8 years old=)

What a beautiful picture. Helping and encouraging children in need. I experienced my own child being in a children's home for near 2 years it was a very difficult time.. Especially at Christmas time may God bless those with compassionate hearts as these that work with our children!!

Helping others in need is really a kind thing in our daily life. We can lend a helping hand for once, but it's really hard to be willing to help others in one's entire life. I just hope that we can do this kind of thing whenever they are needed.

Every person on this earth should love, respect, communicate, assist in every way they can, their parents, because they are why you are here and when they are gone, they will never be seen again. I know I miss mine and think about them daily, bye mom/dad.

We all have something we can do everyday to help someone in need even if it's just a smile and kind words.
