#blog4cause {Hands on giving for young kids}

#blog4cause is all about families and  kids making a difference by doing , giving and sharing with the cause of their choice. This week you all amazed us but we want everyone to take part, even small works of charity will make a big difference. Join us and teach your kids about giving first hand.

For all the details about this campaign read this .

We are tallying up all the work you and your children are doing and here are our stats so far :

Hours of work donated30.5

Toys/Books donated : 10

Money donated : $557

Food donated :  81 items

But the biggest difference this week was how many shoe boxes were filled for Operation Christmas Child. Not only were there 6 different links in our linky below all about filling shoe boxes but in our tally there was a total of 30 shoe boxes filled by kids making a difference!

Wow!  More than 30 kids will be smiling as they open those boxes and know that somewhere in the world kids cared enough to think about them. Awesome!

 I loved this post from The Iowa Farmer’s Wife about her experience and great tips about giving.

Did you fill shoe boxes this week with your kids? Donate food for someone who needs help putting a Thanksgiving meal on their table? Donate to the Red Cross to help Sandy survivors?  Whatever you did  make sure you add it to our tally ( simple form to fill out) and if you blogged about it add it to our linky below .

There are no prizes for this campaign just a great opportunity to teach our kids about giving during this crazy busy season of getting .
