    A Gifted Giver

    I turned 11 a couple of weeks after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I felt sad for the people because they didn’t have any food. Instead of getting birthday presents, I asked my friends to give me money to help people whose houses were underwater. Thanks to my friends, I donated $80 to the Church’s Humanitarian Fund. I hope the victims of Katrina are OK and can start new lives.
