What I made...
   Ultimately, I made a lasting difference in my school and community.

How I made it...
   A group of friends and I decided to unite together to make change.  We started a service club that holds meetings, conducts fundraisers, organizes volunteer efforts, and gives to others.

Where I made it...
   Our service club meets at my school.  However, we also go places to help those outside of school.  

What I learned...
   The hardest part of starting this project was putting my own wants aside and helping others.  The biggest thing I have learned is that their is nothing more rewarding than putting a smile on someone's face!
