You Have Decided to Give Several Hours of Your Time

You have decided to give several hours of your time each month to improve the community where you live. What is one thing you will do to improve your community? Why? Use specific reasons and details to explain your choice.

I think the question of what would I do if I had a chance to improve my community is difficult. I have in my mind many things, the improvement of which will make our community a better place to live, but they all require the participation of many people and, moreover, they require investments, which I can not provide. For example, my community is quite noisy. We have a huge mall just in front of our community, so traffic jams are very common for this place. I think that the construction of a few pass-by roads will benefit all people who live here as well as people who drive by every day.

Unfortunately, the question is what I can do for my community, giving a few hours of my time every month. I think I can not do much, but I still can help someone in my community. For example, I can babysit. I know a couple of families with little children who can not afford to spend much money on the babysitter. One of these families is a single mom with a little girl. Julia, this is her name, is a waitress in a restaurant. She is a great person, and we became close friends. So, sometimes I offer her help with her child when she has to work in the evenings. Another family has two funny little twins. One time their parents asked me to babysit their children because they had to attend an unexpected presentation.

I think this kind of help brings many benefits to my community. First of all, people become friendlier. For example, those families I mentioned above became friends after introducing them to each other. Second of all, people get to know each other and feel more secure in their houses and apartments. Finally, I am ready to help those people because I am sure they will help me. One time I lost the keys from my car, and Julia offered me her car for a while.

To sum up, I believe that babysitting is a great way to help my community in many aspects.
