There is an orphanage in our town and once my mother and I were passing it by when we saw some children playing there. I felt sorrow towards those children and decided to give them my clothes which I had worn in my childhood. At home I looked through all my dresses, skirts, shirts and other things, collected them, made a parcel and brought it to the orphanage. The children were glad and thanked me. As for me I was happy too because it’s much better to give than to take.
