A safe place is home

My safe place is home. Most people have a home, but sometimes people live on the streets. I have a home and I live with my two brothers, my mom and Justin. When I get home, I like to sit on the couch and watch TV. Some other stuff I like to do when I am about to go to bed is write in my book because it makes me relax so I can get a good sleep. But sometimes people don’t have a home. There’s one place that helps people with over 3 or 4 people in their family. That place is Habitat for Humanity. They build houses for the homeless and they help to build a huge community. They are doing a random act of kindness. The other day, a man was sitting on a couch there and he went there about two days a week to help. But he had such a kind heart that he bought my class about 70 doughnuts for us. He didn’t have to do that, but he was being very kind-hearted to do that. You should donate to Habitat for Humanity, because they are helping the homeless to survive. They are trying to make our community a better place for everyone.
