"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)!

Project​ ​Giving​ ​Kids​ ​Shows Kids How to #CreateTheChange

 

​​PGK just wrapped up its season of Create the Change Days welcoming nearly 500 kids, teens, parents and partners across Boston and the Bay Area. Beyond the heaps of fun had by all, some serious good was done too! Check out these numbers:

  • Over 600 toiletry kits assembled for low-income and homeless individuals;
  • Over 400 holiday and "thank you" cards made for troops and veterans;
  • More than 250 dog and cat toys crafted for shelter animals;
  • Over 1,000 silverware packets assembled for holiday meals for the homeless;
  • More than 200 books for children in Africa, dozens of new socks for the homeless, and hundreds of food items collected;
  • As well as donations gathered for North Bay fire relief victims and those affected in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria.

There is a wonderful quote by Sataro, "Individually we are a drop. Together, we are an ocean." Let us all remember how powerful a force can be created when people come together for the common good. Thank you, Boston and Bay Area, for helping us #CreateTheChange!
