Giving Tuesday is the perfect day to talk about giving back with your kids. The 3rd annual Boys & Girls Clubs of America Give the Gift of a Great Future Holiday campaign encourages kids to celebrate the true meaning of the holidays. Visit the site and read about the Kids Give Back contest and vote for the group you like best. I voted for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Wyoming who visited with residents of a senior care center. It reminded me of my time in the school choir, we always visited local retirement homes to perform concerts during. Until of course they kicked me out for being a bad singer. Just kidding, at least about being kicked out, they had to let me sing. 😉 I truly am an awful singer. 🙂 You can vote each day through 12/12.
Kids can also use the Gift Tag Generator to create fun, festive holiday gift tags or read tips on how to give back to your local community. I love the idea of acknowledging and celebrating all kinds of giving from giving time (volunteering) and money (allowance) to giving joy with praise or kindness. Check with your local Boys & Girls Club to find more ways to give back!
