Confident Intentions


George, a kindergartener, loved doing crafts at school. He was intrigued with how simple items could transform into great gifts.

One day, George’s classmate didn’t get to do art because the teacher didn’t have enough toilet paper rolls for the whole class. George knew his families collected many recyclables every week and decided to start collecting them for his school.

At his uncle’s house, he asked his cousins to search their recycling bin for toilet paper rolls and tissue boxes. They reluctantly complied and put what they could in a bag for George.

At his grandparents’ house, he collected items on his own as the adults talked in the kitchen. He heard his Grandma ask, “What’s George up to today? Why is he collecting garbage?”

George happily presented his teacher with two bags of tissue boxes and toilet paper rolls on Monday morning. ” Why, thank you, George! This is very kind of you to donate!” His teacher said with a big smile.

George smiled with hope. “You mean it was good to collect these? My family said I was collecting garbage. I just want everyone in class to enjoy making crafts.”

His teacher replied, ” George, when confident intentions are loving and true; it doesn’t matter what thoughts others have of you. It was very thoughtful of you to think of your classmates and work hard for what you believe in. Thank you very much.”
