I think that this is an amazing thing to do for kids, specially when they need someone to give them advice and need someone to lift them up. :)

It was very easy and I was glad I was able to help a child in need.

To help a family in need, to bring a smile to a child that doesn't get to live the perfect life. That is what the world is about. Helping those that need us. Giving our time, hearts, and skills to others if we are gifted the opportunity to do so
