Last week I posted about my shopping trip to partner with #PostCFK in their Buy 2 Give 1 challenge. While my daughter was drawn to the sugary chocolate cereal we ended up with *a little* more nutritious selection.
When we got home I sent out an email to mobilize my local friends to donate food to our local food bank. In the summer, many children who usually get meals through school programs, go hungry. Donations to food banks drop off in the summer, so this is a great time to mobilize the community to help!
What I really like about Champions for Kids, is that they leverage their ability to help children but giving all of us the tools we need to do something good. Instead of asking for money that they will spend on programs, they instead tell us easy ways to directly help. This benefits in so many ways because it not only helps the recipient, it changes the givers. It creates a mindset of philanthropy.
