On April 27, 2017 there was a “Bring Your Child to Work Day” at my father’s workplace. He works for Federated, a building for financial work. I had learned about mutual funds and how Federated had helped people within our country. The founders of Federated, John F. Donahue, Richard B. Fisher, and Thomas J. Donnelly, were classmates and as children of the Great Depression had witnessed how the stock markets had crashed. They wanted a safe way for people keep their money in banks without them thinking their money was in any danger.

I had watched a video of how Federated came to be then we did some activities such as making bookmarks and making bags for the children who can’t read or don’t have books to read. Since reading is good for people, I thought it was a good idea to do. There were over 2,000 books going out to children that didn’t have them. The books are going to be delivered to children across Pennsylvania.

Later, I sat in my father’s cubicle with three other people. We had all sat there doing work and talking about random things. About 40 minutes later we went out to eat at Max&Erma’s restaurant. Then we left for the rest of the day and I went home. But first, we stopped to have Dairy Queen since it was such a hot day out. I had tried out the “brookie blizzard”. I had went home, and opened up the gift bags they had gave us after we made the book bags  and I had received a beach ball and a piggy bank. I gave them to my sisters and that concluded the rest of my day.
