I think its really good that he began this program, in the raticle he says "Brayer said he appreciated the recognition from the city. Although he misses working with the approximately 30 volunteers at MS Helping Hands, Brayer added that he plans to continue to individually promote the nonprofit through his work as a state ambassador for the MS Foundation. He plans to continue advocating for services for people with multiple sclerosis after he takes some time to recover from recent heart surgery." I tihnk that the volunteers are really good people look how big of a change they mde by just soending a little time.

I do believe that helping others is cricital to have a happy life. Giving to others or voluteering to people that arent as foruntate as you is so important that what makes the world go around. it says in this article "Whatever the motive, volunteering improves the health, happiness, and in some cases, the longevity of volunteers. Children who volunteer are more likely to grow up to be adults who volunteer." I volunteer all the time and i plan too keep doing it as i get older. Volunteering has taught me so much!! more thans chooling.

I think what he did was amaazing! more kids should help out! its always sad to see kids not having a proper child hood becausse eery kid deserves one. the article says he had delierved 20 instruments to 20 different panitents! if everyone in the class just did one guitar we could be helping like him. Why put all the responsiblity on him?! we should help him raise money. The fact that he is blind too just really makes him that more amazingf! instead of feeling bad for himself he went out and helped other people!
