Good turns come in all sizes - but are all equally important. Big examples are, saving a life, rebuilding a home destroyed by a natural disaster, cleaning up our waterways, working with a community to build a park, or representing the United States of America by placing flags on a veteran's grave for Memorial Day. Other qualifying good turns are small, thoughtful acts such as helping a child cross a busy street, go to the store for an elderly neighbor, collect food for the hungry, cut back brush blocking a traffic safety sign, doing something special for a sibling, or by welcoming a new student to your school.
