A Time To Give - Number 10!
This is my 10th post to Jennifer's weekly post "A Time to Give." I thought I'd share what I've learned! Ever since I was a young girl my family and I would volunteer at our local church, that was a blast. We grew up with morals and knew how to respect our elders and open doors for strangers. Then I became apart of the youth group and alter serves and we'd do fundraisers and when we'd have a few extra funds left we'd take a trip down to the beach or even to a theme park. As I grew older I joined the Leo Club, like the Lions Club for teenagers. I also began to be interested in learning about ways I could do my part to "save the world!" I joined the geo-science club and we started the recycling collection at my school and saved excess printer paper to use as cheat sheets or scratch paper. As a family we also still kept on doing volunteer work, like participating in the local "Trash Day" and we also helped build a park called RioScape at the local museum. I got married and moved away, but still and now am teaching my girls the importance of recycling and up-cycling as well as donating unused toys and clothes to needy families. Then I found Jennifer's Blog, Saving and Giving and learned about other ways that we could give to our local communities and even strangers! I thank Jennifer and all those who participate in McLinky to share the ways we give.
Some other ways I've learned to give from "A Time to Give" is that donating clothes is great, but there are women and men who also need hygein products and such. I had never thought of that. I always have smaples of lotions and such that end up just piling in the corner cabinet in my bathroom. Another of my favorites was a recent post of Jen's when she said that she makes baked good for her neighbors as a thank-you during Christmas! That is just awesome. We all need to remember our neighbors. Also love all the different ways we can help out our troops. They are always in need of support and a little lift and thank you for defending out country.
If you'd like to participate in this weekly post, head on over to Saving and Giving and read all about A Time to Give! It's a great way to learn different ways on how to give. Thanks Jen!
