They can donate their time to help build houses,churches and schools. They can make a way to get care to those we can get it themselves. They can get treatment for the illnesses that can kill. They can even help cure some of these illness. So they can save many lives by just showing that they care and give back to the people that help them be who they are. We all need help sometimes So just help. 2
