I've had the great pleasure of participating in some awesome SIMPLE Service Projects with Champions for Kids. You can see my past experiences with the DisneyCFK SIMPLE service project and the AbbottCFK SIMPLE service projects.
This month I had the great pleasure of combining two things I love in order to give back to those in needs. The March SIMPLE service project (#AllYouCFK) with CFK (Champions for Kids) was taking the All You magazine and using coupons and inspiration from the articles to create a basket of goodies to give to a needy organization. I love All You magazine, coupons and shopping. Combine that with buying baby items (something I no longer get to do) and you have a hit! I found some great coupons in All You and online and headed to Walmart to pick up some great items. You can check out my entire shopping experience in my Google + album. Then I used those items, along with a basket I purchased from Michaels to put together a "baby basket" for a local organization.
The organization I chose was Agape Pregnancy Support Services in my local hometown. Their mission is "To help pregnant women choose life for their unborn children, and to
provide a stable support system where needed. Love is the first thing
we hand out. From there we meet the needs of the mother's as they are
presented". It was started by one woman, Helen Rogers, who adores children and wanted to reach out and support pregnant women in any way she could. The amazing thing about this organization is it is run completely by volunteers and relies completely on donations to survive. That made it a no brainer for a perfect CFK choice.
I left feeling great! It really does make you feel like a million bucks when you help out others and you see first hand how grateful they are. You can join in too. Just head on over to the CFK twitter or facebook pages where you can learn more about SIMPLE service projects and how you can become involved!
