Meaning of Home

Meaning of home

Everybody should have a home that’s safe, comfortable, with memories, and family. But some people don’t have homes. They have houses. Some people are not very nice, that’s probably because they don’t have a home. A house is a shelter with walls and a roof, but a home is different. It doesn’t have to be big like a mansion. It can be as small as a tree-house. But to make it a home you need love, family, memories, safety and for it to be comfortable. Without those things it’s just a house. Some people don’t even have a house. Some people only live on the streets. So all grades 4, 5, and 6 are allowed to do a Meaning of Home project. And every project that gets sent, someone will donate 10 dollars to the meaning of home charity. That charity will give money to people so they can build a home of their own. Hopefully everybody that gets a home will be happy with it. So everybody that can, should help out with Meaning of Home. Then, everybody will be happy, and everybody will have a home.
