In simplest terms, our project consists of our group tracking down the elusive Güti. Upon encounter, we presented him with a family size pack of double stuffed Oreos.
The four pillars of giftisim
Abraham: In our project we moved from consumption (consuming the Oreos for ourselves) to contribution (giving the Oreos to the Güti).
Cameron: In our project we turned what would conventionally be a transaction of tender in exchange for the Oreos into a trusting deal where we give the pack away in exchange for the knowledge of making Güti smile.
Carlos: My group moved Mr. Gutierrez from being isolated at his desk after school into a community of students willing to give him a giant pack of family sized Oreos.
Adrian: As a group we moved changed from having a scarcity of Oreos for Mr. Gutierrez into an abundance of his favorite cookies.
Expectations and What we have learned
Mark: I expected Mr. Gutierrez to be surprised. I learned that one simple act of kindness can go a long way.
Cameron: I initially thought Mr, Gutierrez would think this is a joke but turns out he loved our little gift. I learned about the satisfaction from making someone smile.
Abraham: At first I thought Mr. Gutierrez would just laugh but he was actually quite surprised. I aqired knowledge about making people happy.
Adrian: To be completely honest I know from the start this would make his day knowing his love for Oreos.
Carlos: I expect this project would make his day or perhaps even his week! From this assignment I learned on the importance of giftisim to another person which could really use a gift.
