Thank a Deserving Veteran with Cookies this Christmas

This post is sponsored by Katy’s Goodness. Opinions are 100% my own. #Katysgoodness #ThankAVeteran If you are looking for an easy way for your family to give back this Christmas and throughout the year, you can easily say thank you to a veteran with cookies and donate to charity at the same time. Katy’s Goodness is providing an easy way for families to give back to America’s veterans. Christmas is one week away!  Can you believe that? I have been so busy that it feels like it has crept up on me this year.  The holiday season is supposed to be a time of giving, reflection and family, but it is really easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and forget the main reasons we celebrate.

Fun Felt Faces with Fiskars Craft Tools

The kids are back in school and we’re beginning to feel a resemblance or normalcy returning to our lives.  Every year before school I take my boys shopping for all of the supplies on their school list as well as any other fun things that they “have” to have.  I’ve always tried to make back to school time really fun and exciting for my kids and I let them choose their own backpacks, kids scissors, folders, notebooks, craft tools, etc.   We LOVE crafting and creating around here so I also load up on craft and art tools to keep here at home while they are such a great price.  But did you know that there are thousands of kids around the country who aren’t able to purchase their own school supplies or have them in their home. There has to be something we can do to help right?  Fiskars has partnered up with Champions for Kids to encourage individuals, families, neighborhoods, communities, etc to make a difference in the lives of students and our schools. They believe that every student should have the opportunity to be creative and use their imagination.  Anyone can host a simple service project by gathering up extra school supplies around your home or office and donating them to families in need, organization in your community or your schools to make sure creativity isn’t lost because of lack of supplies.

Simple Service: Fighting Childhood Hunger

“I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias®, Odwalla, and Champions for Kids #cbias #SocialFabric”  All opinions are my own. A few months ago I attended a blogging conference in which the keynote speaker Brooke Walker from Studio 5 talked to bloggers about being able to use the blogging platform as a way to influence the world for good.  Since that time I have been on the look out for opportunities to serve families who are less fortunate than mine.  When the opportunity came to partner with Odwalla and Champions for Kids to help fight childhood hunger over the summer, I jumped at the chance to contribute. When my children are hungry, all they have to do is open the pantry or fridge and choose from a variety of food options.  They have never had to worry about where their next meal will come from, and in fact I don’t think they have ever skipped a meal in their entire life.  With school ending soon, there are many children who have been receiving meals at school who will face the possibility of now being hungry.  And that breaks my heart!
