On the heels of finishing off the big boy bedroom (pictures to come, I promise!!) I really wanted to show JP that there’s a little bit more to life than the UPS man arriving at the front door with a box for us. I have decided to participate in an ongoing mission – The Champions for Kids Energizer Light Up a Life Simple Service Project.

I decided participating in this campaign would be a fun way for JP to make a box of his own to give away. One of his favorite things is when a box arrives on our doorstep. The suspense in waiting for me to open it just kills him and he squeals with excitement – even when it’s something boring, like reams of paper for my shop. It’s never too early to teach the lesson is that it feels good to help others and help our community, even if it’s in a small way. The whole point of the exercise is to make a winter survival kit for a needy child and fill it with goodies that help keep them safe though the winter months. Things like a toothbrush, shampoo and hand sanitizer… to ward off illnesses, and anything else that might keep little hands busy and happy during the hard, cold winter months. All together, our goal was to make 4 survival boxes – 2 for girls and 2 for boys, and donate them to our local church.


Basically, it’s a small way to to give back to your community, and anybody can participate! Check it out here and see how you can help!
