Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Green Is Healthy

We all love changes when they are drastic with no effect on litmus.Coming in this area now make one not want to g back to where they came from.The environment so cool and welcoming.plenty to be felt and accepted. When it was in the past without scouting,it was hard to stay.The movement became in force with a mission to support the community and change the youths in the environment. The 1st task was to collect all the litter in the community burn them up and they dug pit holes at a good distance between the homes,with one big one away or distances from where the community was. Trees were planted at the same time and well protected from destruction.A long the roads and paths.The community became green and colorful with flowers planted incompounds that seemed to be having one or two. The community has always given there support to the movement at all cost and security.
