Caring for the Common Good
Kickstart a Daily Giving Countdown
Embrace the giving season and host a donation drive for a local shelter or food shelf! Two unique printables guide families through a “reverse Advent” giving challenge. Each day, families will be prompted to add one item to their donation box, then spend a few moments wondering about big-hearted ideas. Discover more detailed instructions here.
Leaders, take time to introduce your featured organization, its mission, and the impact you’ll be making for your community. Then encourage youth to lead this effort with their families!
- Close your eyes and imagine if you were the person receiving this basket. How would you feel about the gift? How do you think you might feel about needing this help?
- Can you think of a time when you needed help? How did it feel when someone gave you a hand?
