"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)!

Spotlight: Bay Area Begins with Festivals, Markets & New Friends
We are just getting started in the Bay Area and to kick things off, PGK teamed up with our new partner, My New Red Shoes, to get a jump start on the Back-to-School season, making nearly 200 cards to accompany the Back-to-School bags they provide to students in need to help get their year off to good start.
Participating in a Facebook Festival in May, two farmer's markets in June and July, and gearing up for our final summer appearance at the Facebook County Fair on August 26th, PGK has been connectinig with kids to give them a chance to bring smiles to other students, just like them, and to make sure they know there are lots of other ways they can make a difference - all they need to do is check out the PGK website or the newly launched PGK mobile app, YouthGive.
