Seeing someone being bullied is just wrong. I saw a bully speaking rudely to my friend. I asked him to stop talking that way and he pushed me. I took a stand and told him that we would tell our teacher about his behavior. Later, he apologized and asked us to forgive him. My friend and I made a new friend that day.
Who made a big difference in your life? That someone to me is God. God should be in everybody's life. God made this world. God will help you without even knowing it. You just need to pray! You need to help other people God will be by your side when you do everything. The best part is that God loves you no matter what and will always be there when you feel like you have no one else to turn to. He is your friend forever, and he is the best friend you could ever ask for. That is a person who made a big difference in my life.
Do you have a certain person who has made a difference in your life? I know someone who is always kind, shares, and thinks of others before herself. Her name is Grace. She is a good role model. When I met Grace, my view of everything changed. I have known her since I was three or four. It is good to make differences in people’s lives. Open your eyes and look around. I’m sure you will find someone who needs a friend.
Do you know what a role model is? Everyone has a role in life. It could be a good role model or a bad role model. An example of a good role in life is being kind to others. An example of a bad role in life is bullying or being unkind to others. A role model is someone who people look up to. For example, a fashion model shows people good things to wear. If you have a little brother or sister, you should be a good role model to them because they look up to you and want to do what you are doing. So always be aware of what you are doing and be a good role model.
Have you ever made a difference in someone’s life? When you make a difference in someone’s life, you are turning something sad or bad into something happy or good. If your friend is sad because she lost her dog, you can take action! You can put up signs and help her look for her dog. That would make her feel better because she knows someone cares. It is good to show people that you care about their problems.
Have you ever had someone make a difference in your life? I have. Those people are my parents. My parents have provided me with food, shelter, and good advice. You can make a difference in somebody else's life. Some ways you can change their life is asking them to be friend. You could invite someone who you know is going through a hard time, over. Who has made a difference in your life?
If you want to make a difference here are some tips. If you see paper or any paper on the ground, pick it up and throw it away. You can also make a difference by giving a sad person a hug or by playing with them. The small things can make a difference! Remember to think, how can you make a difference this week?
The person who changed my life is my dad. My dad has encouraged me to try hard in sports, school, and life. And trust me it pays off. He has been gracious to me, which has taught me to be gracious to others. He is so nice and I love him for teaching me life lessons that I know I will remember when I am an adult.
Have you ever been bored in the summer with nothing to do? Well here's a way you can make a difference in the summer. A difference that you can make could be picking up trash on the side of the rode, or pick weeds for your neighbor. You could even sell lemonade to raise money for a cause like the Journey House or other helpful organizations. Have a great summer!
To be a good role model is very important! For example, if you do something bad in front of little kids, they'll look up to you , and copy the bad thing you did. But if you do something good in front of them they will copy the good thing. This type of behavior is being a good role model and shows that you are a leader.
Someone who has made a difference in my life is my mom. She lifts me up when I am down and she makes me feel good inside. If I do something I'm not supposed t to do it and she'll say its okay and we put it behind us. She is also the one who told me about God. She can comfort me in a way that helps me. She is the one who made a difference in my life.
You can make a difference! It's easy! All you have to do is be yourself. You can also make a difference in the world. All you have to do is gather a bunch of your friends and go to a park and pick up a bunch of garbage. The world would be a better place if it was cleaner, don't you think?
My dad is someone who has made a big difference in my life. He loves me and cares for me, and I love him because of that. I love him because he loves me. There are many other reasons I love him, but those are the main ones. We have tons of things in common, such as loving Star Wars and music. Who makes a big difference in your life?
Are you a good role model? Think about it. Are you calm, funny and nice? Or are you wild and loud when you're not supposed to be? Being a role model isn't something that you choose to do. It's something that you are, every single day. If you don't know what I'm talking about here is an example: you are walking in a restaurant. You aren't walking, like you should be, you're running! A little kid sees you running, and they start running, too. You didn't notice it. Were you a good or bad role model? If you think like that in your everyday life, you will be a good role model.
Summer's almost here! There are some great ways to help your community, such as doing yard work for your neighbors or helping out at a local animal shelter. Sure, I understand that you might do some camps, but even taking out the trash for your parents can help! Even better, you could help by making sure that every item that goes into the recycling bin actually goes into the recycling bin.Be creative and think of some ways you can make a difference in your community this summer?
Being a role model is really good, but do want to be a bad role model? I hope not. If you’re older than anyone, the younger child looks up to you and if you do bad things they’ll do that, too. I know that I look up to kids that are older to me. Also, if anyone is looking up to you, it’s a compliment because they want to be like you and admire the way you live your life. You need to make sure you are being as kind as you can to everyone you see, because there is always someone who is looking up to you.
Many people have made a difference in my life, but there's one person that sticks out to me. It was my 1st grade teacher. She told me about God and helped me believe in Him. That changed my life. It made me happier and more joyful. I then started to try and help people come to Jesus. Who has made a difference in your life? I hope its Jesus.
Do you believe you can make a difference? There are so many way you can make a difference. A good time you make a difference is in the summer. You can make a difference in small ways, like helping your mom and dad. You can make a difference in big way as well and you could clean up your neighborhood. You can also get ideas from Disney Make Your Mark. That’s some ways YOU can make a difference. I am encouraging you to make a difference because there is always room for improvement in the world.
To be a good role model is to obey, listen, and do what's right. Little kids always look up to big kids, so we should do what's RIGHT. To obey is to do what your parent's tell you to do. If my mom or dad says "go make your bed" then I should obey them and do it. The Bible does say to obey your mother and father, and that's exactly what you should d. For example, my dad asks me to show the little kids how to do a lay-up instead of doing a jump shot, I wanted to show them a jump shot, but I listened to my dad because I respect him. Remember to: do what's right and make good decisions. We should always keep self-control and never lie. That is what being a good role model really means.
One way we can do well this summer is to not litter, and if you see any litter pick it up and throw it away. If you see litter on the road, sidewalk, or street, just go and pick it up, so our environment will look more nice and neat. Just imagine what our country would look like without litter. God created this world and we need to make sure and take care of his creation. One person can make a huge difference. Just imagine a world without any litter, it would be cleaner and look so much nicer. That is how we could make a difference this summer.
Do you like summer? I do. If you do maybe you should choose this summer to make a difference. There are so many things you can do to make other’s day better. You could help someone bring in their groceries. Maybe you could go and help someone with their yard work. Be creative, thing creatively. Why don’t you choose this summer to make a difference, or help someone?
A good role model is someone who is kind, helpful, and a good leader. Do you have a brother or sister? Have you done anything bad around them? If you have, don’t do it again. If you do, do it again, they might start doing it, and you might get in trouble for being a bad role model. You never want to be a bad example. You need to always be a great role model for people older and younger than you. As you probably know younger people look up to older people and want to be just like them. If you have a younger brother or sister, you know what this is like. They always copy you and so you need to make sure that what you are doing is good.
Someone who has made a difference in my life is Andrew. I would not have been able to do a variety of things without him. He has helped me when I have been sad, hurt, or mad. He has helped me when I have been stuck, confused, or down. Andrew has been a really good friend. That is who has helped and made a difference in my life!
Have you ever been through a hard time? Maybe you lost a pet or a family member. Did your friends comfort you? I have lost a pet and it was hard to go through. She was very dear to our family. When I went to school, my friends heard about it. At lunch they would sit by me. At recess they would play with me. They were really comforting to me. If that happens to a friend, I would write them a card or play with them. If they start feeling really bad about it give them a hug. That will most likely make them feel better because they feel loved. Always try and be nice because it might change their mood from being sad to having the best day.
Have you ever seen someone lonely? Here's how you can help that. One day I saw a new person moved down the street. They had children my age. I was so excited because all I usually play with is my brother. I went over there and they were really shy. I introduced myself and then I asked if they wanted to come over. I tried to be as nice as I could and now they are coming to my house every week. You should always be nice to people and treat them well. You never know what might happen.
Have you ever had a pot of soup? Well I have. You know it takes many different ingredients. Well that's the same with our life. God made us in different ways, we all look different and have different personalities, but nobody is more special than the other. And just like a soup has ingredients. We're the ingredients of God's kingdom! Don't leave people out because they have glasses or braces. Step up and become involved in God's community, do what God would want you to do, treat everyone as you would want to be treated.
Is someone in your class getting braces? And are they scared about it? Give them this advice: When they read, they should read aloud. It will help them get used to talking with braces. Also, when I got my braces, I didn’t feel any pain until the orthodontists got done putting them on! The best part is that you can eat tons of ice cream the first couple days! My favorite part is changing the color of my rubber bands! You can have as many colors as you want! If you have had braces before, tell them what you did when you had them. It will not only make them feel great, but it will make you feel good, too!
Do you ever see someone who is struggling? The next time you do go over and help them. Everyone struggles from time to time. We all have good and bad days. Here are a few ways to make sure we have more good days then bad ones. You could help a friend that is going to a new school. Or you could help them on a math problem. If they ask for help, help them. Do not reject them. Be kind to them. DO NOT LEAVE THEM OUT! Do not bully them. Be friends with them!
Have you ever seen someone lonely? Have you wanted to help them? Well here are some ways you can do that. You can ask them if they want to play. You don’t need to do big things to help someone; even the tiniest thing can make a big difference to them. You could give them a card to show them you care, or if she/he has a good idea for a game you can play with them. Everyone needs a friend who they can trust and depend on. You also have to remember to be a good friend. You should never talk behind a friend’s back and you should always support them. The next time you see a friend do something to let them know you care and remember even the simplest of things can make the biggest impact.
Have you lost a pet like me? Well if you haven’t lost a pet think of your classmates, friends or other family members who have. You should try to cheer them up, give them a hug, and just be nice to them. You can play with them at recess. Or you can give them a little present. You can also encourage him or her. Showing sympathy and support is all it takes to make them happy again. So go help other people at your school that are going through a hard time.
Has someone hurt your feelings about something silly? For example, you didn't score the winning goal or didn't wear the right bracelet to school. Well don't feel bad about that. You have to remember that no one is perfect! Sometimes people say mean things to other people to make themselves feel better. Sometimes the people who say that kind of stuff to you are in a bad mood. Everyone has a bad day every now and then, so you just have to keep your head up. There are many ways to handle people that are mean, sometimes you need to turn the other cheek, but that is not always the best solution. Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself.
You have feelings and I have feelings. Children around the world have feelings. We always want to help them have happy and joyful hearts. I know that I would love to help children around the world in any way I can. A good way to do this is to help raise money for a charity that you really believe can do good things in the world. Let's all come together and help make the world a better place. We can do this in so many ways. We can do simple things, because even the tiniest acts mean the most. My advice to you is to do whatever you can to make someone happy!
You should always support people. It's incredibly important to be generous. God sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins and that is the most generous gift of all. By being a giver we can show how thankful we are. There are many ways you can help people. If they are sick you can comfort them and raise money to help pay for their medicine. I love to help people, whether it's making them feel better when they are sick, helping them fix something broken in their house, or finding a way to make money and give it to a school. Help in any way that you can, because people can always use some more support in their lives.
Have you ever been bullied? Do you think a good way to respond to bullying is to bully back? Bullies usually bully other people because something is going on in their lives, whether physical or personal. If they make you feel bad by bullying you, they are satisfied because they feel like they have accomplished something. If you ignore them, they will continue to bully you and other people. Some kids think that they can handle bullying by themselves and that telling a parent might make it worse. You are not tattling if you tell a parent or teacher, you are actually being mature. My advice to you is to go up to the adult and say "This person is being mean to me, I have tried everything to try and stop it myself, and it has not worked, could you please handle it?" Over all things remember: if you are bullied respond to it with love, because love surpasses all understanding.
Have you ever moved? Once, my friend said she was moving. She was really scared that she wouldn't have any friends. Then, she ended up moving only ten minutes away. She could still see her friends and go to the same school. That is a small move. A few years ago, I moved from Georgia to New Jersey. I met a nice person on the first day of school. The next day, all of her friends wanted to meet me! If you meet a new kid think about how you would feel if you were in their shoes. Wouldn't it make you feel good if someone wanted to be your friend right from the start? Everyone knows that it is hard to be the new kid, so we should all try to comfort that person, make them feel welcomed, and let them know that God loves them.
Is there a bully in your school? Do you let them push you around? Bullying is a major problem in schools, and someone has to stop it. First you need to make sure that you are not a bully. You need to ask yourself: Do I use my words to encourage others or to bring them down? Do I make fun of others? Am I a good and trustworthy friend? Bullies normally have insecurities, have you ever thought they were bullying you because they don't want to be bullied by other people? If that person comes up to you be nice to them and ask them. Hopefully they will be nicer to other people because you were nice to them. "Kill them with kindness!" It's a great way to make someone stop bullying you. So if you have trouble with a bully, be nice to them and trust me, the results will be good.
Have you ever been on a roller coaster, the big ones with the really steep drops? Well I have. Were you afraid when you were getting on? I was. If you're with a friend and they're scared, comfort them. Tell them that you were on it once and you had fun or tell them not to be scared because you're right there with them. Once they go on I'm sure they'll have a good time. I did. Sometimes life can be a roller coaster ride. One second you're happy and then someone says something mean to you and it can make you sad for the rest of the day. If you see a friend going through that, don't just watch them!Comfort them and let them know that you will always be there for them. If you do they will be happy again. We all want to make people happy, right?
Have you ever been sad? Have you ever seen someone who was sad? I have, here are some ways you can help. You can make them a card or say encouraging words to them. You can buy them an ice cream or play with them. You could even get them a small present .You could also show them that you love them, and will always love them no matter what. Next time you see a sad person, find creative ideas to make them smile. You should always want to help people. Be grateful for the life that you have and try to make other people as happy as possible.
Have you ever seen a kid being bullied? I have! Here are some ways to help the situation. You could tell a teacher or an adult, but I think they best way is to tell him or her about God .You could spend time with him or her. Who knows, he or she might become one of your really good friends. You also could be nice, cheerful, and encouraging to them. You could tell them that you got their back, and will help them in whatever way you can. You can help them to make friends with other people. If they are sad, just be as nice as you can to show them that God CARES ABOUT THEM. And show the bully that it is better to be kind to one another then to be mean. All kids should do whatever they can to stop bullying or help the person that has been bullied!
Have you ever thought you haven't had enough strength to play a sport? I know I have. Sometimes you have the physical strength, but you don't have the mental strength. Here's an example. I love baseball. I know I have the physical strength but sometimes I don’t have it mentally. So if you're saying “I can't do it” to yourself every time you play a sport and you know that you have the physical strength, you need to keep a good attitude and think “I believe I can do it!” God made you and he has a plan for you, with that in mind you should be able to do anything.
Have you ever wondered if you have a superpower? Well I know I have one. Mine is sharing the love of Christ throughout my everyday life. Think of it like this, you're Batman saving people’s lives with your superpowers, but instead of rescuing them from the evil villainor a burning building, you save them by making sure they will live forever in heaven. Also look for other ways to save people, because we all sin and we all need forgiveness.
Have you ever been bullied? Do you think a good way to respond to bullying is to bully back? Bullies usually bully because something is going on in their lives, whether physical or personal. If they make you feel bad by bullying you, they are satisfied because they feel like they have accomplished something in their lives. If you ignore then, they will increase their bullying. Some kids think that they can handle bullying by themselves, that telling a parent might make it worse. So, if you are bullied respond to it with love, because love surpasses all understanding.
Have you ever moved? Once, my friend said said she was moving. She was really scared that she wouldn't have any friends. Then, she ended up moving only ten minutes away. She could still see her friends and go to the same school. That is a small move. A few years ago, I moved from Georgia to New Jersey. I met a nice person on the first day of school.The next day, all of her friends wanted to meet me! If you meet a new kid, think about how you would feel if you were in their shoes. Wouldn't it make you feel good if someone wanted to be your friend right from the start?
This time of the year, everything seems to be better....outside! What are your favorite things to do outside? This week, accept the MMAD Outside Challenge. Try to spend as much time outside as you do watching TV. Your body will thank you!
Have you ever made chocolate soup? What did it taste like? How many bowls did you eat?
OK seriously...there is no such thing as chocolate soup. What in this world would you do if you came home and that's what you were having for dinner? At first, it might seem like the BEST soup ever...but after a minute...total tummy ache!
That's just it...so many times we think that something would be great...but our parents and caregivers know that it is a very bad plan.
First of all, when we put food into our bodies, it's like putting gas into a car...we have to "run" on the nutrients from the foods we eat.
So today...say no to chocolate soup! Your body will thank you!
Sometimes everyone had tough days...but that is ok...because we all can learn from those days.
Also, it's important to remember that sometimes when people are unkind to you...it's because they are having a tough day too.
There is a story about a boy who had several tough days. For a long time he could not understand the reason for his struggles. Then, all of the sudden those bad days went away and he realized that the tough days were there because he needed to learn that sometimes life will hand you lemons...but...when that happens...make lemonade!
Meet our third charity partner, Best Friends Animal Society. Best Friends is an organization that makes a difference in the lives of animals across the US and around the world.

MonkeezTM Makes a Difference would like to introduce you to a second charity partner, Samaritan's Purse. Samartian's Purse helps kids around the world through projects like Operation Christmas Child, the Children's Heart Project, and Disaster Relief. Samaritan's Purse also makes a difference through many other projects as well.
Please click the link to our charity page below to find out more about Samaritan's Purse. This organizations makes a great big difference each and every day!
Have you guys had a chance to get to know our charity partners? This week, I would love to introduce you them! Monkeez Makes a Difference has partnered with three AMAZING organizations!
The first organization we would like to introduce you to is Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. ALSF is an organization that pretty much sums up our mission through Monkeez Makes a Difference. Alexandra Scott was diagnosed with cancer as a very young child. When she was four years old, Alex asked her parents if she could have a lemonade stand to raise money for kids like her with cancer. Alex could have kept all of the money herself....or at least sent the money for research on her specific type of cancer; but, that is not what she asked her parents to do. Instead, she tol her parents that every child deserves a chance for a cure.
Alex lost her battle with cancer when she was only 8 years old. Her family, however, continued the organization in her memory. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand has raised more than $55,000.000.00 for cancer research. Now that is one little girl who made a GREAT BIG DIFFERENCE!
Thanks Alex, for teaching us all that children can make a difference!
Please see the video from ALSF in the tool bar below. Click on the word charities.
Keep Making a Difference!
Oh boy…it’s probably about time for everyone to get back into the routine of school. Aren’t breaks always great?!
At Monkeez Makes a Difference, we would like to start off the new year with a challenge. Check out the link on our site called “Keez.” This is an area that we will focus on throughout our challenge. Once you visit that part of our site, click on the word honesty. What is the definition of honesty? Talk to your parents about this character trait.
We would love to hear if you have a story about a day that it was hard to tell the truth!
I hope you are doing great! Most of you reading this are probably on Christmas Vacation from school!
At Monkeez Makes a Difference, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas! Don’t forget to set aside time to do something kind for someone else!
OK… can we talk for just a second about the importance of washing your hands. I used to teach school, and I would tell my students… "go to the bathroom and wash your hands" right before lunch. Would you believe that some of those kiddos would walk into the bathroom, simply run their hands under the faucet, and walk right back out? Oh my goodness… I would have to send them right back!
OK… this may seem simple, but kiddos, I have to tell you how to wash your hands properly. I promise…. clean hands will help fight icky wintertime viruses…and it is so simple!
I know you are super smart… so this won't be a problem AT ALL! Make a difference this winter bykeeping the germs away! It will ABSOLUTELY make a difference in the way that you feel!
Do you have any funny stories to share today? We need a good laugh! Have a wonderful day!
Something that makes me bananas, is when children don't realize the impact that they can have! Sometimes I hear kids say, "I am just a child…I can't make a difference." OH MY GOODNESS… that is just not the truth at all!
In fact, there are kids that make a TREMENDOUS impact every day. For example, one of the charities that we work with is called Alex's Lemonade Stand foundation. One day, a little girl named Alexandra Scott wanted to make sure that other kids did not have to experience cancer like she did. So, Alex held a lemonade stand to raise money for cancer research. After that, she challenged other children to hold lemonade stands and give money for cancer research. Today, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation has raised more than $50,000,000.00 for cancer research!
Do you believe in yourself? Do you believe that you can make a difference? Let us know what you think!
If you have been reading along with us the last few days, you will see that we don't scurry around with easy topics…no, that is not our mission at all! Instead, at Monkeez Makes a Difference we believe that children have so much potential to really impact our culture! Keep up the good work kiddos!
Today, I just want to talk to you for a second about the word excellence. We have all heard the word 'excellence'… but how can we be 'excellent' every day? You know it is really simple, to be excellent, you just have to give your day your very best! My boys laugh because sometimes I say…ok boys, I am expecting your personal best! That doesn't mean that it is important to "be the best" rather, it means that it is important to "try your best."
So today, we challenge you to Be Excellent! Try your hardest in everything that you can do. Let us know how that plan works for you!
Do you know the definition of courageous? Honestly, I had never looked up that word before but the definition states being courageous means that you have the ability to face situations without fear! Wow! Ask yourself… are you able to face situations without being afraid?
Being courageous is a great big challenge! However, one of the most courageous things that you can do is stand up for your friends. Very often, I realize that it must be pretty tough being a kid these days. However, I have been hearing stories about some pretty amazing kiddos who make a difference by standing up for their friends when others may no be as kind.
Let us know your story! Have you ever had to stand up for a friend! If so, way to be COURAGEOUS! We are super proud of you!
My boys roll their eyes everyday when I say, "OK Boys… you only get one chance to do today….so BE REMARKABLE!" Then, I make those wild guys repeat what I said…."BE REMARKABLE!"
Do you ever think about it? Yes, you all might be young but every day passes by and you have the opportunity to make a difference. So, today, I want to challenge you to 'Be Remarkable' right where you are. Maybe you help a friend who is having a tough day, maybe you pick up your clothes and toys off of the floor, or maybe you visit with an older person. Who knows? The sky is the limit… and you are REMARKABLE!
Let us know how you decided to be remarkable today! Can't wait to hear your stories!
