Introduction: How to Make a Difference
Many people think they can't make a difference in the world. However, it doesn't matter who you are. Tall or short, male or female, old or young, everyone has the power to make a difference and here is how you can get started.
Get a group together who wants to help. Whether friends at school, family, or neighbors; there is power in numbers.
Choose a cause you want to support. Make sure it is something you are passionate about and interested in.
Plan it out.
-Set a goal you want to achieve to help your organization.
-Organize convenient times and places to give. (You can give money, supplies, time, help, or even a card!)
-Create fliers and pamphlets. Post and distribute them at your school, neighborhood, or other places you go.
-Make frequent announcements and updates.
-Motivate the public.
Now comes the great part...
-Go to your organization and help them, give them what you made, or donate what you collected.
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!
