This is so impressive! This story shows the idealism of a girl, someone who wanted to make a difference and did it in her own special way. I think that many times as we get older we doubt the difference we can make by doing small things for others and this is a great reminder that we shouldn't underestimate ourselves or our actions.
This girl will continue making a difference in the lives of others.

Cute story

and with a meaning - not everything, including chesed is fun. Good point by Anon above - it's the muttitude of little things, like this, that have cumulative, powerful, impacts.

Critical message!

Thank you for they incredible reminder that the most important things we do are often aggregates of tiny acts--one bottle at a time, are often messy, and often leave the greatest impact on the giver! Would you do it again?

We would definitely do it again! (in fact we haven't stopped :)
