"People will forget what you said. People will forget what you did. But people will never forget the way you made them feel." – Maya Angelou


The "Giving Lists"

This is where we celebrate the kids, groups, schools, and others out there making the world a better place, one good deed or project at a time. It's pretty easy to make our list - just do something for someone else (or for the planet or for animals) and share it with us! We want to see just how big this list can get. So go ahead, do some good and send us an email. We'll get your name and city on the list and maybe we'll even do a special spotlight story on your amazing work. And if you have a picture of your greatness, we hope you'll share that with us too (cause who doesn't love a good picture)!

Create the Change Day Touches Even More Thanks to Burlington Youth

Inspired by Project Giving Kids’ Create the Change event in Boston, Burlington Kids Care put on a local version of the event on February 10th at the Burlington Public Library.  Four teen volunteers helped run activities to support PGK’s nonprofit network, which included making 90 cards for elders and children, creating 40 bookmarks for libraries and children learning to read, and making 50 toys for animals in shelters. Kids took part in a story time, reading books about kindness and helping others, and made valentines for organizations and family. Organizers loved the opportunity to involve kids in fun, hands-on activities that gave them the chance to contribute to others. Burlington Kids Care involves kids and families in giving back and taking part in acts of kindness in their communities.
