    My Skills To Another

    When I was thirteen years old, I became very interested in shopping and making purchases from eBay. I would do all the browsing around and then when there was something I found that I wanted, I would ask for the help of my Dad to place bids and make purchases.

This is touching.

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
