Pass It On®

I found my passion for softball last school year and joined the modified softball team at my school. I don't live in town, so my dad had to drive into town to pick me up almost every day. I started crunching numbers, with gas having been so expensive during softball season, and I just realized that my parents spent $197.76 just on gas for me to play softball for three months. Now, that is sacrifice.

Richard C., Crown Point, IN

Sacrifice is giving up something of value for something of higher value.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga

Its beautifully said. If giving up a little can bring a smile on somebody's face, then we should think that our work is done.
Rina G., Secunderabad, India

People sacrifice their lives everyday for us. Why can't we do the little things to give back?
Madison C., Pennsylvania
