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

The Needy Organization

My story is about helping the needy which was organized by the 'NEEDY' Organization. The needy were the students of my school who were about six of them in total. That day we held a meeting in the school dinning for helping those needy students who lacked secondary school fees from term one term three. We prepared well and after starting with a prayer the principal spoke for a moment then we started offering what we had. Principals from other schools had come and they all donated50,000 the teachers donated 34,600 and we pupils donated 32,000. Some of the principals who joined the meeting late, donated a total amount of 50,900. Some parents donated 24,850. At the end the money was enough to pay for the needy pupils and the organization succeeded.
