Find a Cause. Make A Difference. Simple. Easy. Fun.
I got word last week that the wonderful creative team at the HB Agency that produced our PGK video won a prize for the "Best Animation Video" at the 2015 SABRE Awards for their work: http://youtu.be/cbZbZLfFz6g
There are exactly 12 days until my kids go back to school. In those days there will be at least a couple in which they will be completley focused on their own wants, and their demands will test my patience. After all, they're kids and that goes with the holiday season about as well as pumpkin pie and egg nog. But in those days, we will also try to refocus them on the bigger picture, because that's our job as parents.
If you find yourself wanting more of the same (perspective, that is), we invite you to check out our recently completed 12 Days of Giving Back, shared over the past couple of weeks via Facebook. (A great reminder to "like" us on Facebook if you haven't already!) No doubt that none of us will have time for all 12 this holiday season, but maybe pick one (with the kids' help) and make it a new part of your family's holiday traditions. We hope it will be one of the best traditions you all cherish and remember.
So...here's the list. (Keep in mind this was shared one day at a time, so it was a little less overwhelming when digested that way!)
We at Project Giving Kids wish all of you a holiday season filled with joy, peace, hope and gratitude.

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.
