Week 2- Sam Lemler

I learned a lot about my classmates. Some of the stuff that they brought in was personal to them so respect it very much. For example, someone in my group brought in a sticker of the marines and told us that he was going to join the marines. That is something that I never knew about that person. It was also interesting just to see what other kids are interested in.

Our team fundraiser is that we will sell wristbands for veterans of the armed forces. They are going to bed red/white/blue and will say “save a life, save a veteran.” We plan to fundraiser at school and community places like Piggly Wiggly.

Week 2- Dylan Romaine

What did i learn about people in my class with the paper bag activity. i learned about people in my class what means most to them in life and what they like doing in there life and what makes them happy. I learned a lot about people that i had no clue that they liked doing it. What i put in the bag was a football cause i like playing football. A picture of a deer i shot because i love deer hunting. and i had a chunk of a arrow too cause i love to shoot archery too.

Tony Steger Week 2

I learned some things about my classmates and I about whats important to people. The people in my group had some thing they enjoyed doing whether it was a sport or hobby. My 3 items were a banana, rosary, and a track medal. I enjoy eating bananas to prevent cramps, I am fairly religious, and I enjoyed going to state for track and sports in general. Since most of the people in my group enjoyed a sport and was important to most of us, we were thinking about hosting a 3v3 basketball tournament. We were planning on charging a team of three a certain price and figure out a bracket and play in the high school gym.

week 1 Alex Deheck

For the activity I did I had to choose 6 out of 20 mad cards What I learned about myself was that I care about helping others before helping myself. I learned that it is important to put the needs of others before myself because they could use more help than me. I hope to learn the importance of being a good leader and how it affects others to be following someone who is a good leader. I learned a lot about myself by realizing that I cared more about other people than myself. All the cards I picked were either helping out other people, animals or the environment.

Week one- Travis Griesemer

1)What I learned about myself is that If I was going to give money to any organization for disaster relief. I learned that is important that you should care about others before yourself. I learned that everyone has different places they would want to give the money to other then to what I think it should go to.

2)That it is important to put others before you. That is very difficult to do but that is what can make you a good leader which is the point of doing mainstream philanthropy.

Tony Steger Week 1

When we used the MAD Cards, it made me think of all of the problems in society today and pick which ones were most important to me. But not all of them were problems, some were practices that are very important to people. For example, religion isn’t practiced by everyone, but can be huge to a person’s life. I learned that veterans in my eyes should help when needed, because of the sacrifices they have made for our country. That was my #1 making a difference card. I also learned that helping people in need is something I would do whether it’s getting someone back to their families or people with diseases. I learned that some people look at pets and animals very highly and are very important to people. I want to bring people joy and help people I can and who are in need. I want to gain responsibility and leadership for myself.

Week 1- Ty Cook

My experience with the Make A Difference cards was a little boring because I just had to pick three that interested me. From the cards I picked, I learned that I want to help with the environment. Such as cleaning it up and taking care of natural disaster ruins. I didn’t get a chance to see what everyone else picked.
I hope to gain experience of helping out people for a good cause.

Blog #1- Randy Zimmel

when we used the mad cards we had to chose 6 between 20 different broad areas of charitable donation. All these areas hit crucial spots in today’s society making this activity quite challenging. Choosing 6 out of 20 was super hard because typical human nature makes us feel like we should help all of these areas. It showed us that we do care about giving back. We all had different picks but all in all i think this will better us as people and make us feel accomplished.

My experience with using the MAD cards was a task at first but eventually it go easier as I sat and thought about it. I learned a lot about myself and classmates with the variety of different cards my classmates chose. It was a challenge to pick out six specific cards especially when there were so many to chose from and they all felt very important. I learned that family means a lot to me because I chose family cards cause I felt it was most important out of all the cards. I learned that every classmate has different cards than most. Everyone had different cards and not many people had exactly the same cards. I hope to gain knowledge out of Main Street Philanthropy to pass that on to others.
