You can change the life of one child and improve the world!
Do you want to make a difference in the world? Of course you do!
Every day I try to change the world for a child. You can do the same thing!
Here are two ways you can change a child’s world.
Purchasing things a child needs.
When I was a child, I was very excited to finally go to school like my older brother. On my first day of first grade, I skipped to school by his side proudly, happy to finally be going to school. When I got there, my teacher was very nice to me. She was impressed with the fact that that I was already reading and understanding National Velvet.
But I was embarrassed. I did not have school supplies like the rest of the kids in the class. I felt ashamed. My teacher had to give me the basic school supplies I needed.
Now I am an adult and I love to help others. I have been enjoying buying and filling backpacks with school supplies and taking them to donation points. I pick the coolest-looking backpacks and fill them with the coolest-looking school supplies I can find. I hope that the kids who receive them enjoy them. I have filled and donated 10 backpacks so far.
Being a big brother or big sister.
My family was very extremely dysfunctional but I did not feel like I was alone in the world. I had many “big brothers” and “big sisters” watching out for me constantly, especially my beloved Grandma.
As young as three years of age, I was allowed to walk anywhere I wanted to walk—to the park, around the block, to the corner store. My Mother did not know it but I had many adults watching out for me who cared about me.
All of the help I received from others as a child made a huge difference in my life. I knew that others cared about me. I knew that if I could only get out of the house a while, I would be okay.
All of the love and support I received has made a difference. Now I write to help others.
Remember that helping others, especially a child, will help you overcome depression and anxiety.
Even if you make a difference in the life of just one child, you are a world changer. You never know what that child might grow up to be because of your help and your love.
