Do Some #SimpleGiving With Your Family

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This post has been compensated by Collective Bias; however, I would have gotten involved anyway because the cause is so worthy :)

I'm doing my best to teach my girls the importance of helping others. We got a new book recently (which I'm soon going to give away a copy of! yay!) about just that, and it's been a great conversation starter for me and Eden. We also talk about Maureen, a girl we sponsor through World Vision, and everyday ways to help others at home and school.

So I was excited to learn about an opportunity going on that makes it EASY to give back and to get my girls involved.

Champions for Kids is an amazing organization that makes it simple to give kids in your community the resources they need to thrive. They mobilize people, because deep down, most folks love helping kids, they just don't know how or where. Like I said, Champions for Kids projects are so simple, you can't *not* get involved.

Right now in Arkansas and Southern Missouri Walmarts, you can purchase back-to-school snacks for kids who need them. Just look for the pallet like this.


Snack choices include --
  • 100 Calorie packs of Emerald Nuts (an excellent way to stay fueled between meals)
  • Dole Fruit Bowls and Squish'ems (perfect for any outing or school lunch)
  • POWERADE ZERO (turns water into a zero calorie sports drink)
  • DASANI Drops (adds delicious flavor and sweetness to your water or any beverage)
I explained to my girls what we were doing and let them pick out the snacks they wanted to give the kids. They seemed to enjoy it!


After we picked out our snacks, we went to purchase them along with the rest of our groceries. Then we dropped them in the donation bin as we left the store!


She was so proud :) And wasn't that easy?!

After the project closes Sept. 8, Champions for Kids will distribute the snacks to kids in need from the school district of the Walmart where they were donated.

I told you it was easy! You're going to Walmart anyway, right? Pick up some snacks and get involved!
