June 2017. I’m a Helping Ninja and today I went the outside in my yard with my neighbor and we picked up trash. It took us about 15 minutes. My hands were tired when I was done. I wish that people would not liter. Please help pick up trash too. I volunteered my time today to help and it made me feel good.Helping Ninja. age 5, Lexington, Ky, Sycamore Elementary
