Continuing to Give
Updated: Jan 6
The holidays have wrapped up and so has the end of the year. However, the needs for so many people and organizations do not slow down. This is a time of year (very similar to the summer months) when organizations are needing both resources and volunteer times.
I think this is a wonderful opportunity to continue to share the “holiday” spirit and teach our littles about the types of needs throughout the year. Whether it be warm cloths and food for the winter, or water bottles and sunscreen for the summer for the local rescue mission or homeless shelters.
One way of making a contribution that you may not have been aware of is that many of your favorite charities have partnered with amazon. A small percentage of your sale goes directly to that organization. This is no additional cost to you, but helps that organization out. It is free to sign up and each little bit adds up!
Continuing to give doesn’t have to be overwhelming or grand gestures. Even small impacts make a huge difference. Whether that is volunteering one hour a month, or simply using technology to “round up” purchases while at the store. The greatest thing we can do as parents is show our kids to love others, and carry that with us daily.
