Laura is a girl who is making a difference. Her personal project Twenty Five Days to Make a Difference is making a difference in people’s lives.
For 25 days, Laura is going to work hard to make the world a better place. She started on December 1st and will complete her project on December 25th (Christmas Day). When she says "work hard" she means it. Her task on the first day was shoveling snow for her family and neighbors. You can follow her daily activities at http://twentyfivedays.wordpress.com.
Laura is also encouraging other kids to participate. She wants others to let her know when they perform acts of kindness during this period of time as well. She has provided a list of Ideas for making a difference on her project website at http://twentyfivedays.wordpress.com/ideas-for-making-a-difference. For the child who makes the most difference in December, Laura is going to donate $25.00 to the winner’s favorite charity.
I can’t think of a better Christmas present that she could give. I can’t think of a better Christmas present that we could give. You and I need to follow Laura’s example and find ways to show our love and help others every day.
Thank you Laura for being a terrific example and for demonstrating to the world what the holiday season is all about.
Note: I learned about Laura and her wonderful project from Dr.Mani.

Thank you so much for writing about me and my project!Your website is inspiring! Love, Laura
I have to thank you for building sites like this. As a mom, I am exposed to so many negative stories about the power of the internet and the bad influence that so many sites have on kids and others. Your site is a powerful example of how the internet can be used for tremendous good. So as a mom, I thank you so much. We’ve linked to you on our blogroll!
You are the one who is inspiring. Keep up the great effort.
Thanks for the kind words and link. I know you are proud of Laura.
Thanks for letting me know about what Laura is doing. I also have a giving blog and I love to find out what kids are up to. The discipline of giving is so important in our world and there is so much pulling our kids away from the idea that the best thing to do with the best things is to share them or simply give them away.
Thanks for your blog.
