One of the things that I am a firm believer in and want my teach to value is helping others. Most times it doesn’t take much to make a difference in the life of someone else. Small things like opening a door for someone with bags of groceries or a stroller full of kids, giving a friend at school a few bucks to buy lunch who doesn’t have money or lunch with them, donating clothing that we don’t need anymore to those who need it are small things that we can do and they do make a big impact on someone else’s life.
I am really excited about this campaign that is all about helping people! There are many different ways that you can help out and make the life of someone else better!
Just head on over here and Choose your project at under “Take Action”. You can help change the world and make a difference and for your awesomeness you will be rewarded with a smiling heart and could possibly win a $250 grant!
From September 14 – October 16, kids, teens and families can visit the website to learn how to create peace in their community, join in spreading Martin’s message on social media by creating peace posters or sharing acts of kindness using the campaign.
You can also join in the Twitter Party on September 21, 2015 from 2 – 3 PM EST!
I am loving the Penpal with Vets, being that Tom is a vet I know how much a simple card or drawing from a kid can make a big change in how they are feeling. This weekend I am going to sit down with the kids and have them color pictures that we can send out to vets to help put a smile on their face!
There are a LOT of different ones that you can pick from. You can get a group of your friends and their kiddos together and spread the word about the #NoMoreHurtingPeople campaign which I think is AWESOME and a great way for us to get our kids to see that helping people is so much better then hurting others! I hope that if we work together as Moms now and we all teach our kids that as they get older the world gets better!
The campaign is in honor of Martin Richard, an 8-year-old boy who was tragically killed when the second of two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. In the days after the bombing, a photo of Martin holding a handmade poster that read, “No more hurting people – Peace” circulated the Internet and was shared by media outlets worldwide. Martin’s view of peace went well beyond simply wanting to prevent violence. To him, peace meant things like togetherness, compassion, teamwork, fairness, sportsmanship, inclusion, and being kind.
