I thought both videos were good but there really wasn't a winner.. I'm not to sure if people ever really sacrafited anything for me but I've sacrified stuff for people

I preferred the second video, mostly because I just like personal stories better than vague inspirational words. I almost always find it more inspiring to see a personal story, whether true or not, over some vague "words to live by" that make sense but are hard to relate to.

Goodness, I don't think I can quantify how many people have sacrificed things for me, whether big or small. I'm lucky to have a wonderfully gracious and generous community to support me. Probably the people who have sacrificed the most for me are my parents (no surprises there). They've put a lot of time and money and lifestyle changes into helping me become the person I am today, and I'm very grateful for that.

The second video pulled at my heart strings but the first one makes me want to go out and do something to give back so therefore I cannot pick a winner I love them both!
My parents have sacrificed a ton for me and my brother. They spend atleast 20 hours a week driving me and my brother to our games and practices around the city. They spend thousands of dollars to help us get where we want to go. After that I would say that my coaches sacrifice a lot of time to contribute their time and passion to my teams.

I liked the second video better because it shows how much giving can get you! It shows that doing something so small can be so bennefical!
I think my parents have sacrificed the most for my success! By driving me to cadets an range and takin up their own time to be on committees and ensuring that I get the best circumstances to achieve my goals!

i like the second video it impacted me more it showed how a good deed at such a little age can make you change how you look at other people, i dont really know who sacrificed for me i cant think of anything but my mother has done a lot for me and had to sacrifice things as well as my dad hasdone quite alot.

I think I enjoy the second video better because I understand it more and it really touched me. I think it made a signicant impact on me. My mom and dad have sacrificed for me before when they needed money for insurance for something but I needed new boots so they bought them for me.

The seconded video gets the win for me. I really liked the personal story that they showcase because it makes the viewer care and more importantly make it memorable.

In terms of people sacrificing for me, the list is large but the first person that comes to mind is my mom. She literal has down everything in her power to make my life better. Whether it's giving me the tools to complete my projects or just giving me advice. Without her I wouldn't be where I am today.

I liked the second one better. I liked being able to see the personal story and hearing how everything turned out.
My parents have sacrificed quite a bit for me, but the one that's sacrificed the most for me was Jesus. I mean he actually died for me and for you too. Now that's sacrifice.

This decision is extremely tough as both videos were fantastic. The first discusses doing random acts of kindness for other people and expecting nothing in return, and also discreetly quotes the Bible which I thought was cool. I think what this video talks about can teach all of us a lesson about how we act towards others. The second video was an incredibly touching story that shows that one small act of kindness will go a long way, even if it seems like nothing at the time. It may even result in people being there for you when you need them most; people who otherwise wouldn't have batted an eye.
When speaking of sacrifice, there is one significant sacrifice that comes to mind, which is that of Jesus; sacrificing his position to become human, and then sacrificing his life for the sake of myself and anyone else who will follow him. That is a big sacrifice.

my choice of video was the second one because it was more easy to understand and im a sucker for heart warming video's .

my auntie and uncle have sacrificed a lot for me , they gave me a place to stay and have helped me out financially , my boyfriend has also been so good to me and has sacrificed his time and effort to keep me happy .

The second video because it was very touching and I learned that if you help someone and they will help you back.

My parents sacrificed a lot to because they work so hard for my needs and they will always tell me to study hard and do well in everything that I do.

I liked both videos, but I would say that the second one won because I love seeing personal stories. It showed how doing some little for someone can pay off in the long run, even if you aren't looking for something in return.

I don't quite know how many people have sacrificed for me, but some things that people have done would be my mom sacrificing some things in her life to raise my brothers and I. My dad had also sacrificed a lot of time to give me advice, and be there when i need him. And then there's also all of the things people have done for you that go un talked about.
