You Can't Buy Happieness

12/17

If you don't like how things are, change it! You're not a tree. ~Jim Rohn

I believe that you can't buy happiness.  Happiness cannot be bought.  But you can make other people happy along with yourself.  It doesn't have to be a certain season like christmas or easter but all the time.  Many rich people think that you can buy happiness which is wrong.  

Many things can be bought with money but happiness is not one of the that you can buy with money.  The only way the happiness can be is by it being created.  It can only be created by making other people happy.  Like donating money to charity or other places in your community.

Victorian Child Labor

12/12/13
It is surprising that the chimney sweep owners kidnap children to work.  It is pointless if the children required such low pay.  It is good that they have since made laws restricting children under the age of 14 from working.  My question is what were the jobs of a child coal miner.

Amazing Kids

12/5/13
These are kids that have done amazing things.  The first one is Blare Gooch.  The name of his organization is Hugs for Haiti.  The reason that he wanted to help is because he saw newscast of a little boy after the the earthquake in haiti.  So he got his school to help donate teddy bears to the children of haiti.  The effect was great.  He and his school donated over 25,000 bears.  That is very amazing that they can do that.

The next amazing kid is Tristan and Jackson Kelly.  The name of their organization is Backpacks for new beginnings.  They fill new backpacks with school supplies and give them to the kids that are less fortunate.  They wanted to help because they saw so many kids that didn't have backpacks and school supplies.  They donated over 40 backpacks stuffed with new school supplies.  Their goal this year is 300.  The effect is that it has given backpacks and school supplies to kids that without this organization would not have them.

The final amazing kid's name is Winter Vinecki. The name of her organization is Team winter. The goal of her charity is to run is marathons and triathlons to raise money for cancer research which her father died of. So far she has raised $250,000 for prostate cancer research. She is now 12 and is still doing amazing things that are helping people with cancer get closer to a cure for this terrible illness.
