My idea is to take a look at the negative things happening in the news once a week, and then decide to take specific action to counteract the negativity and help those affected. Examples: >If the main headlines revolved around hate crimes, we could all post messages on social media to spread love instead of hate, as well as donating to any relevant human rights charities. >If it was bullying, we could all do a Random Act of Kindness for a stranger, and pledge to be kind and stand up against harassment whenever we see it. >If it was cruelty against domestic animals, we could all volunteer at, donate to, and/or publicly promote local animal rescues. >If it was wild animal endangerment or other forms of environmental destruction, we could do an activity such as picking up litter, as well as donating to environmental charities and taking pledges to reduce our carbon footprint as much as practical and possible. (Even though the latter would be a more long-term thing, we could still check up on progress weekly.) >And finally, if it was something to do with negative or harmful laws, we could call or email our state representative. This is not a complete list, of course, because we never know what will happen, but I hope it is enough to get the idea across. If all goes well, it would be a group or club at my high school. Anyone involved with the school would be welcomed, whether students, teachers, administrators, or even parents, as long as the admins would allow that. My school is very small due to being a private school, but I think we could still make a difference, no matter how small we start out. It has been said that the best way to counteract all the depressing events is to do *something*. Even it just helps one person, or one animal, or one patch of wilderness, it's still better than nothing, and even if it's not the entire planet, it can be a world of meaning to that one individual. Be kind! Sincerely, Elizabeth.

Our project used a local organization called Casa de Esperanza. This organization serves at-risk infants, children and their families by providing comprehensive residential and family support programs. We participated in a "family adoption" campaign in which we were assigned a child and given basic information about them, including a list of wishes and needs. The group was given a budget for the items. After finding gifts from our given list, the group met to assess which items to buy according to the budget. Items were purchased. Once we received the items, the group members wrapped them according to instructions. A group representative then dropped off the package at the Casa de Esperanza intake office.
