A Small Donation Brings a Big Smile to a Little Girl's Face
In the midst of a hectic holiday season ahead, we can benefit from a cute story. If a child cannot finish a worksheet during tutoring, especially one with coloring, they bring it home to finish. It was after one such worksheet that one of our usually joyful kids became quiet and sad. When asked about how she was feeling and why, she said she didn't have any crayons at home. We gave her a box of crayons, thanks to a donation from Simon Says Give, and a bright smile returned to her face. The next day she brought me a picture and the following day she brought me another one (both shown above). My eyes welled up with tears!
During this holiday season, I am thankful for my job. Some days may be stressful, but in the end it's the children that bring the cheer.
