BEREADY Bond Assignments #4 and #5
Hey BEREADY family,
I hope everyone is doing well in school and I know some you are now are playing fall and winter sports. Have fun with your teams and keep up your grades. BEREADY is watching!
I’m so excited for the holidays as it is a great time to see friends and family. It is also a time for giving and sharing. Some of you may not think you have lot to share but you do. Life is all about perspectives and you can help many people just by giving them your time. At BEREADY Academy last summer we learned: “When you help someone, you help yourself” and here is your chance to prove it. We have combined the assignments for November and December so you can accomplish a lot with one great act of giving. Here is what you have to do:
1-Find any local organization or charity in your area to donate your time. You can help to serve people at a food bank, habitat for humanity, Goodwill, Salvation Army, or any place you can think of. If you find a person that you know who may need assistance (from an injury or elderly), you can volunteer to help them too. Make sure to give enough time so you get to know the people you are helping.
2-Write all the details of your experience on the BRBlog. Who you helped, when, where, how much time, and all the details about the experience that you can remember.
3-Comment on the other experiences on the BRBlog and compare them to yours. Make sure you respond to our BEREADY coaches who are living and playing overseas. They are far away from home and love to hear about what’s going on here at home. I had to call some of them myself to tell them that there was a presidential election and Obama won. I think they got the news before me!
You have 3 things to do to complete this assignment before December 31, 2012. I look forward to hearing about all your experiences on the BRBlog. You guys are half of the way to an amazing BEREADY Academy Program for 2013. Don’t give up now. Find your BEREADY brother or sister and get them on the BLOG too! Let’s Go!
