This year my friend David started an service group called Envision Vancouver, and I was able to help him to organize some activities. I was responsible for preparing for a jam sale to raise money for arranging an Christmas meal for homeless people in the local area. I calculated the budget needed to arrange for the Christmas meal and then found out the exact number jars of jam to sell and the price for the jam. I was also one of the jam makers: we spent a whole day at home to turn all the fruits in the boxes to each jar of jam. The jam-making requires many patience the care. As we got proficient on the process, our speed of making jam increased. Though I was not able to participate in the selling and Christmas meal part of the activity, I believe that my efforts for making jams has paid off when I saw all the smiling faces of the homeless people when they received the meal.
