Rewards for good deeds

We received dozens of new high-quality mobile phones from an important sponsor. They were to be directed to needy children in orphanages. But we didn't want to just give them away

In working with children in homes, we have experience that it is important not only for them to receive, but also to learn to give, create, be active and independent.

So we offered them a new branded mobile phone if they do some good deed and let us know about it.

Here you will find the stories of those little "Do-gooders" who have already received their mobile phones.

I wanted to make people who are ill happy. I learned how to cast plaster molds of little angels. After hardening, I carefully removed the angels from the mold and let them dry for a few days.

And, this is how the good deed unfolded through the eyes of Daniel Fejca (10 years old.

The first friendly visit took place at the beginning of October. We cleaned the guinea pigs. We have got to know the dogs. Personnel of the dog shelter shared with us sad stories. We had the opportunity to see, how the dogs are trained. It was an unforgettable experience for us. Which was why we decided to establish a long-term cooperation with the shelter. Next week, we had gloves on, a brush in one hand, and paint in the other. Together, we painted part of the fence. We went home with a feeling that we helped somewhere, where it was needed. This was not our last visit. We will comebackhereregularly.

Karolína fulfilled the task beautifully, here is what she said.

Good day,
My name is Karolínka Bílá, and I made Christmas cards. I wrote letters to the seniors. I told them my name, and that I was living in the orphanage. I also wrote about what we do here, what I wanted from Ježíšek, and what I like to do. My aunt and I chose retirement homes (one from each region) and one grandmother or grandfather from each home who had no one. The "social workers" who work in the homes and whom we approached helped us with this. I wanted them to be happy that someone had written to them for Christmas, and I also wrote to them that they could write back and we would continue to correspond.
I am grateful that I made someone happy.

My name is Jan Garol. As a good deed, I chose to read at a nursing home. I read the book about Sleeping Beauty and other fairy tales. After finishing the book, we talked. I made them very happy with the reading, and they were all interested in continuing. For me, it was a pleasant experience.

Klárka (10 years old) decided to support a charity run for Teplice Hospital.

Klárka managed to do two good deeds in one day. You can find out more in her letter.

My name is Klára, and I am 10 years old. Together with my older sister, Jana, I live in DD Tuchlov.
Our aunts and uncles, who take care of us, are very nice, and I like them all. They often go on trips with us and do a lot of activities with us.
On Saturday, October 7, Aunt Jana and the children from our family went to Krupka, where I was expected, to participate in the Krupka Charity Run, which helps the Teplice hospital.
After the presentation and opening ceremony, I focused on myself, warmed up, and stretched. I had a lot of stage fright.
After the announcement, I went to the start with the youngest children. A 2.3 km long track awaited us.
I managed the start in first place with an asterisk. They say it just got dusty behind me. At least that's what our aunt Jana said.
The goal was still in sight when I caught up with the exhausted little girl, knelt, and cried that she couldn't run anymore.
I stopped and gave the little girl a helping hand. Together, we continued at a slower pace along the prepared track towards the goal.
The others were ahead of us, but it did not matter. I understood the meaning of the saying: "It's not important to win, but to participate."
The goal was already in sight.
When I saw Aunt Jana and the children from our family in the distance and heard their encouragement, I ran with all my might to the finish line!
Aunt Jana hugged me, and I cried with emotion. Tears streamed down my cheeks. Only when I calmed down, I did tell my aunt that I had helped a little girl who was tired and probably wouldn't have reached the finish line without my help.
My aunt praised me and was very proud of me.
I wasn't sorry that I wasn't among the first, but I was very happy to be able to help where it was needed.

Marcela Vavreková (9) visited senior home.

Marcela Vavreková (9 years old) She chose a beautiful good deed and visited a senior home. In the letter below, she tells us more about her good deed.

During November, I regularly visited senior homes. I talked and filled my free time with grandmothers and grandfathers. At each meeting, we prepared a small sweet treat for them, which my friends from home and I baked together. Grandmothers and grandfathers liked it very much and praised us every time. I liked Grandfather Emil the most. He was the most fun to be with. We always laughed together. We will continue the good deed because it fills the free time for me and them. I learned that I have to be nice to older people and help them. I am looking forward to my next visit, especially to Grandpa Emil.

Marie Rummelová (14) visited senior home.

Marie Rummelová (14 years old). Marie chose a beautiful good deed, visiting a senior home. In the letter below, she tells us more about her good deed.

I would like to write to you about my good deed. I went to Diakonia Valašská Meziříčí senior home. I have been there three times so far. I am planning some more visits. My aunts always helped me prepare a cake or other treat that I took with me. I sat with the seniors in the common room, and we talked about their lives when they were young. I read them fairy tales from the writer Andersen. I am glad I chose this deed because I realized that even seniors can be fun and that we have a lot, to learn from each other.
I hope, that my good deed inspires someone else, and I don't regret doing it at all.

Markéta Rummelová (13) visited a senior home.

Markéta Rummelová (13 years old). Markéta chose a beautiful good deed, visiting a senior home. In the letter, she tells us more about her good deed.

I did my good deed in the senior home. The Senior home is located opposite the children's home. I visited a Senior home with my sister and a friend. I baked a cake for the seniors on the first day and apple strudel for the other meetings. We talked with our grandmothers and grandfathers and sometimes read fairy tales. I liked this good deed and will continue doing it. Our next meeting is scheduled for 12 of December when we will sing carols and enjoy the Christmas atmosphere together. What I liked most was that we made the seniors enjoy their free time and established new friendships. I am sending a few photos from the last meeting in the attachment.
