When they showed the video in the morning announcements there were people sniffling in my class.” All donations gathered from the weeks leading up to the Terry Fox run by volunteers were directly given to the Terry Fox foundation, where 84 cents of every dollar goes toward funding cancer research. Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.

I believe I should be able to participate in La Tomatina next year, an event where over one hundred metric tons of tomatoes supply a giant food fight. I will be able to learn things that I would not have experienced if I had not taken part in this event and experience an entirely new culture altogether. La Tomatina is held in the Valencian province of Eastern Spain in the town of Buñol. It takes place during the last Wednesday of August in Buñol’s streets, only 20,000 people a year are allowed to participate in La Tomatina, as this event is inclusive to only those who purchase tickets. People who participate in La Tomatina throw tomatoes at one another for entertainment purposes, and participants of La Tomatina believe that La Tomatina is an incredibly fun event

“The Lottery” in the story was set up on June 27th. The whole community would go to the center of the town for the event. It would begin at 10 in the morning and only last for two hours so that the villagers would be able to go home in time for dinner. In the story Jackson writes that, “The lottery was conducted-- as were the square dances the teen club, the Halloween program-by Mr.Summers, who had time to devote to civic activities.”. The head of each family, particularly the men, had to go to the box and pull a piece of paper; if they received the piece with the black dot on it, every member of that family had to pull and whatever member choose the piece with the black dot would have to be killed by stones.
When he built the school the boys worked hard and if they graduated they got $100 in new clothes and help finding a job. The school was founded with Hershey's money from his successful chocolate business. Unfortunately, he died in 1945 but he left his money to keep the school up and running! Today, that money would be worth $5 billion! Each year more than 1,300 kids go to the Milton Hershey school for education, career training, housing, clothing, meals, and health care.
My Trip to Haiti It was the beginning of my junior year in high school and there had been much talk about a school trip to Port Au Prince, Haiti, Only ten students could attend this trip, applications had opened up in November and for me a trip to Haiti sounded like just a dream, I thought I was not able to afford it. The idea for the possibility to travel to a new country and be exposed to a brand new culture excited me, I made the decision to apply anyway. In December, I received news that I had been chosen as one of the first ten students from my school to go on this new service trip. I was so excited that I was even qualified, but also worried because I knew that the price was still an issue. My teacher explained to me that there was a
At the end of the day, we gave the school the money that wasn’t used which was over $2,500.00. At the end of the school year, the Frankie Lemmon School invited me to their last day of school where the kids would be playing the instruments I had gotten them. Little did I know the executive director would bring me up front and tell all the parents, staff, and sponsors of the school about my project. Not only was I being recognized for my project, but also they told me that my instruments and the money I donated to the school would provide the school with 36 hours of music therapy over the summer. I would never have thought my project would have such a lasting effect.
I looked at my spouse and commented, “What exactly is foster care?”. “I do not know”, she replied. That sent us on an epic quest that would change our lives forever. In the spring 2005, we attended an orientation seminar. What we learned is that there were at that time over 415,000 children in foster care across the United States waiting for their forever families.
Let’s travel back in time to when I was 16, almost thirty years. I was in the 11th grade, but just barely because it was August of 1990. This was our first year in the new high school that had just been completed. Like most teenagers, I had a specific group of friends that I hung out with at school, every morning, at lunch and after school. I remember them so well.
