Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys and Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.
This time of year is so hectic and crazy that it is so easy to forget that the holidays aren’t a wonderful time of year for everyone. I want to encourage a spirit of giving in my kids so I do my best each Christmas season to remind them that it is way better to give than to receive.
This holiday season, the Boys and Girls Clubs of America want to remember the less fortunate and consider the true meaning of giving. I hope you will take a moment and visit their Give the Gift of Great Futures website. Their Gift Tag Generator lets you create some super cute holiday gift tags to spruce up your presents this year and at the same time helps them spread the word about their wonderful program.
While you are there, be sure to read the inspirational entries in the Kids Give Back contest and cast a vote for your favorite. This contest showcases BGCA kids who have given back to their community.
The Give the Gift of Great Futures website also has a great section of tips on how you can encourage your kids to give back to the community themselves. I especially love the idea to collect your spare change in a jar for charity. I definitely want to do this one with my family.
I know you are all busy this time of year, but I hope you will take a moment to visit Give the Gift of Great Futures to discover ways you can give a little back. Have a blessed holiday season!
