Pay It Forward

The morning after a very snowy night, I went outside to shovel my neighbour's walkway and around my house. When I looked at their walkway, it had already been done, so I just did my own house, so my parents wouldn't have to.

At first, I was going to shovel my neighbour's walkway and around my house because my parents weren't home. I decided to do my neighbour's walkway because I haven't seen them for a while and I heard that one of them was ill. As soon as I got outside, I saw that my neighbours had already cleared their pathway. I decided to just do my own house(front, back, and driveway) and make it look very clean, like a professional snow shoveller did it. It took a little longer than I had expected, but I still got it done. After I finished shoveling I felt a little cold and my fingers were numb. When my dad got home he told me that he didn't feel so well. He checked the mailbox and happily told me someone had secretly helped him shovel the snow around the house. Therefor I felt happy that my dad didn't have to shovel the snow, while he wasn't feeling well.

I think that one person can make a difference because it's like a dollar. If a charity was buying food for people with donation money. And there was a package for $1000, but they only had $999 because someone didn't donate their extra dollar, then that's a big difference for the starving people that don't get to eat once again. Now, besides just donating money to charity's, you could help people yourself and take nothing in return except for them to help other people. If everybody in Winnipeg or anywhere else did this than it could reach to the whole world, and that would give everyone at least one happy moment in life. Every person helping counts!

    FIRST! Aw, it was nice that you helped your dad! If you want to make this post better (and I think you should ^__^) you should check your sentences, some are kind of short, and need to be connected. Also, check your spelling, you have about two errors. G'JOB!
