#9: Field Trip Philanthropy
If you’re at a school where kids have to pay for all of their own field trips, that can be really hard for kids whose parents can’t afford it. How sad would it be to have to stay back with another classroom while all your friends were out having fun?
That’s the situation that the writer of this post found herself in when she was in school. But instead of being bitter or angry about it, she let it inspire her to try to help other children not be stuck in the same situation. How sweet to let a sad memory of your past inspire you to make things better for other people in the future.
