Caring for the Common Good
Hosting a reverse advent calendar donation drive? Check in with kids to learn how their Daily Giving Challenge is going and offer encouragement to keep going (or restart relaxed efforts). Share donation drop-off instructions as the due date approaches.
Giving Plates for the Caregivers
How can we “fill the buckets” of those who share their love with the world? Our teachers, caregivers, and health care providers are all in need of extra support and encouragement. Use these instructions to create a Giving Plate together. Encourage youth to take their decorative plates home, fill them with treats, and share them with a caregiver in their life.
Have your children choose one of the poems below, or write their own.
Enjoy these treats,
We think you’re GREAT!
Because of you
Enjoy these sweets,
And this gift of art.
Our world is brighter
Thanks to your big heart

- Have you ever thought of doing a kind thing for a neighbor or friend, but decided not to out of nervousness? How could you overcome your shyness in the future?
