So, lately I’ve really been feeling called to volunteer and help others, but all I’m finding is barriers. I’m a 14-year-old rising sophomore, and I’d like to be able to help others relatively directly, but almost any oppopportunities to volunteer out there require you to be 16 (I’ll be a quarter of the way through junior year by then), and the ones that don’t make you bring your parent, which won’t be possible for me! I’m passionate about a lot of things like medicine, gardens, anything related to kids, animals etc. and though I could prob just start weeding a roadside overgrown weedy thing, it’s not exactly the type of helping people I’d like to do. My mom’s solution to this is ‘start your own organization’ but I have no clue how to do that! She thinks I can just collect cards for soldiers or something and therefore get college boasting abilities and be set, but I want to actually DO something and, though I really appreciate soldiers and all they do for us, I’d rather donate to a homeless shelter or children’s hospital anyway. I really feel called to help kids. And I don’t want to have ulterior motives anyway. Anyone have suggestions? Oh and sorry if there’s spelling probs I wrote this out on my phone 🙂

Okay, so I imagine where you live that there is a place that isn’t great. Like the hood in that’s what you call it. Gang territory, whatever, I think you understand.
Well, lots of those kids go without food .Fundraise so you can get money to buy food for the hungry children. Make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and put an apple or orange in a bag. And maybe put a bible in the bag.
