A good friend of mine who has been involved in helping charities since she very young has created a small group for the cause of helping homeless children. She belongs to one of the wealthiest families in our neighborhood and she says that this is her chance to give back for all the blessings that their family has received. She has a very kind heart and even turned their basement into a huge room for kids. It has children's books and toys. It has a reading area and a playing area. She and another friend of ours painted the room with pastel colors. This how to finish basement used to be their storage room and she has magically turned it into a place that is enjoyed by children during weekends.
She opens their basement every Saturday, 9 o'clock in the morning, and serves breakfast to underprivileged children. As part of the Teaching group, I am in charge of storytelling and teaching the children basic math and science. We try our best not to get the kids stressed from the lessons so we keep everything simple. After an afternoon of cooking, teaching and playing with the kids, my friends and I are so exhausted but we are also very happy! There is nothing like sharing your blessings with people who need them the most. It's a good thing my friend invited me to her little group and I am looking forward to more Saturdays with the kids.
