The Gingerbread Bang

The Gingerbread Bang
One day a poor baker decided to make a treat for her husband for all the work he’d been doing. She decided to make a gingerbread man and something manly like a gingerbread gun and gingerbread bullets. She lined the white frosting on the gingerbread man face, buttons and outline.  Then she put three m&ms on the buttons. She put the gingerbread man on a steel baking tray and  then put it in the oven. Her husband came in inside, he smelled something scrumptious baking so he asked “ what are you baking it smells delicious” “I'm making you a treat, a gingerbread man and a gingerbread gun with gingerbread bullets. “Oh it looks like it's ready” she replied. She went to open the oven then all of a sudden the Gingerbread man jumped up and grabbed the gingerbread gun and bullets. He started to run away. The bakers chased after the Gingerbread man. “Run run as fast as you can you can't catch me the gingerbread man” A girl and a boy saw The Gingerbread Man running and they decided to go and  catch him. “Run run as fast as you can you can't catch me The Gingerbread man” he repeated. Cows saw The Gingerbread man running so they decided to chase him to. Soon a lake came up and The Gingerbread Man can't go in water. The Gingerbread man was getting worried. Then a kenning fox came and said “Would you like to ride me across the lake?’’  “Okay’’ he replied  He jumped on the fox’s tail. Right after that the fox started swimming across the lake he was going deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my back so you won't get wet?’’ The Gingerbread Man went on his back. The fox went deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my head?” The Gingerbread Man went on his head. They had nearly crossed the lake but the fox cept going deeper and deeper. He said “Why don't you go on my nose?” So The Gingerbread man went on his nose. Now they had crossed the lake. The fox licked its lips. He tossed The Gingerbread Man up in the air and opened his mouth. The Gingerbread Man got out his gun and one bullet. He loaded his gun and BANG! He shot the fox and he lived happily ever after.

World water crisis

                                                         World water crisis  





Some parts of the world our suffering from  unclean water or have no access to water. Right now more than 800 million people are not getting enough or any clean water. By 2050 the secretary-general of the United Nations want to have 40% of people have access to  clean water. They need water to clean their body, clean their surrounding and of course drinking water. A quarter of the world is lacking clean water.

Why you should donate to poor countries

Why you should donate to poor countries
Don’t you feel troubled when you think about  people in poor countries?  Well you can help! You should donate to poor countries like Iraq, Syria, Myanmar and Palestine. You can also donate other goods such as food, blankets or medicine. Have a heart and help!

Don’t you feel over the moon when you see the lovely smiles on people in need?  It will make you feel good about yourself and make the world a better place. Furthermore, you can educate other people about donating and more people will donate to those in need. Also, you will spread good habits about giving to others around the globe.

Do you know that some charities keep most of the donations for themselves? So before you donate you need to know what charities you should donate to. Some people say that all charities keep the money that they raised for themselves but that’s not true. As some charities are honest charities such as Red Cross and  Starship Children’s Hospital just to name a few. Or another option is to donate directly to the person that needs help.  

You see many people in poor countries die every single day and I’m not exaggerating. We must stop this! You constantly see helpless and needy people. We need more people to help! If you're still standing here that’s just SAD!! So why don’t you try? People can die from many things such as war, starvation, or contaminated water or food. Most poor countries our dealing with war,  which means they are more likely to die by bombs or guns. Also people starve to death because they do not have access to food or enough money to buy food. We can prevent this from happening by donating food to charities. However, you can also die from contaminated food or water. But there is a chance that if we get the right medicine they can be cured. Remember these are human beings too, and they are living in horrible conditions and as a result they have a difficult life.


Overall you should donate to poor countries. As you will be able to stop the constant unnecessary death of people. You now know what charities you should donate to, not to mention, it will make you a better person inside and out. Wait! Why is everyone still standing here? You should be donating by now. Hurry up and go donate!
