Just a Tour

You would think a tour must be boring huh? Well this tour was different. I signed up to be a volunteer at Give Kids the World. What I didn’t know is that I was signing up for all the tears that came with it. A Wednesday afternoon I show up at the volunteer center and hear we’re taking a tour. Great! Another boring show around buildings where I’m gonna spend my days.

Oh here come the tears. I never knew I could get so emotional over stories of other kids. Hearing these kids and how they’re wishes came to life with this wonderful foundation. Wow. Such an eye-opening moment. Going around from building to building, from memory to memory was such a great moment. Here I stand, filled with excitement, eager to volunteer, to be part of these memories. Never have I felt this way before.
