Little hands can make big differences and these little ones did this week! I was hoping that we’d get flooded with pictures of our little readers making a difference but we weren’t. It’s a busy time of year and even if you are too busy to grab your camera and snap a picture I hope these posts inspire you to find that extra dollar in your pocket for the red kettle or extra box of mac and cheese to pop in the food bank box at the market. Check out some of the good deeds No Time For Flash Card readers have done.
Eryn’s daughter ( pictured above) gave her own allowance money to the Salvation Army.
Sharon’s children put together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child . This is what she said about the experience ” My son was really excited to give his little boy airplanes and trains because those are his favorite. The kids colored a picture to send along with the box, so it was a little more personal for them. We love doing this every year.”
Lauren made cookies and cakes with her kids to say thanks for her community workers and all they do. They delivered the treats to police and fire stations as well as waiting at the door to present cookies to their mail carrier!
Here is my little man dropping off toys for tots. I was particularly proud of him giving away ( his idea) 2 toys he got for his 4th birthday that he already had.
Other acts of giving that were shared with us without pictures were : donating winter coats , church toy drives, making meals for a grieving family, many many Salvation army kettle contributions, giving new socks to a homeless man and multiple food bank donations.
Thank you to everyone who did something for someone else this week.

Thank you for starting this project, Allie! It didn’t cross my mind to take a picture, but I’ve been letting my two and a half year old put a loonie in each Salvation Army kettle we see. I’m telling her we’re helping everyone have a nice Christmas. I don’t know if she’s absorbing the message, but she sure likes doing it!
