Giving is Living

Once I went to a Mad Hatter Tea
It was a volunteer event for my mom and me
I met lots of kids
Who made lots of “lids” (Mad Hatter “hats”)
It felt so good to give my time,
afterwards I felt better than fine.
I hope I can give or help again,
and I am glad I started when I am only 10.
It felt so good to give and give,
I plan to do it as long as I live.
