Find a Cause. Make A Difference. Simple. Easy. Fun.
I’m a runner…or at least I try to be. Or maybe I was 15 years ago. Regardless…many of us pound the pavement every day for our own health and wellbeing, but how often do we pound the pavement for the health and wellbeing of another? If you’re like me, not often.
So Bostonians (and those who live close enough) grab the sneakers and sign up for Project Bread’s Walk for Hunger THIS WEEKEND! It's the single largest public fundraising walk in Massachusetts, and in tying your laces and taking part, know you will be doing something really good for both yourself and for many others. Do all 20 miles. Do 2. It doesn’t matter. Throw together a last-minute team or just grab one of your kids, like I did last year, and have a really special morning bonding with someone you would love to have an excuse to spend more time with.
It’s really that easy. We’re the ones that make it complicated. All we have to do is make it a priority and take the first step (hopefully of many!) on a beautiful spring Sunday.
Happy walking…your body, and many others, will thank you!
Following LA launch, Charity Matters notes the power of a little love and kindness.
WHY JOIN PGK?
Project Giving Kids is all about cultivating the next generation of Giving Kids, because it is good for them, good for the community, and good for the planet.
We believe that when kids realize early they can make a difference, they are more likely to do so, again and again. By joining PGK, kids become part of a team, have enhanced access to our site and our programs, and become a part of something much bigger than themselves.
Here’s to our children realizing they have the power to make the world a better place.

- Service and volunteering help build empathy in children. Kids who are empathetic do better in school, get along better with others and form stronger relationships, making them more resilient and successful throughout their lives. It is no surprise that the most successful leaders have high levels of empathy too.
