The holiday season is an easy time for children to get caught up in the excitement of receiving. Nothing makes children happier than receiving a wrapped present with a gift that is at the top of their wish list. That’s why it’s important to remind our children that the holidays are about more than getting presents.
My daughter, Ava is 2-years-old and at the perfect age to start being taught about the importance of giving. We will be putting together a package of canned foods and other nonperishable items to give to our local food drive to help families during the holidays. Each year, we also take a day to gather some of Ava’s toys and drop them off to a local charity.
Being a Kinder Mom, I was excited to learn that Kinder has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network to create A Joy To Share program. Kinder is inviting families to create a holiday greating card for children in a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital through the Kinder® Facebook page.
For each greeting card that is created, KINDER® will donate $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network. What a simple, but amazing way to put a smile on a child’s face!
Above is the card Ava and I made. This last week, she discovered who Santa, so he had to be on our card! The wintery background background is the perfect backdrop for the man who lives in the North Pole too.
Your family can help KINDER® reach their goal of a $25,000 this holiday season too. This isn’t just a donation, but a call to action for Canadian moms and children to create a greeting card as a means to share some holiday joy to children and their families at Children’s Miracle Network hospitals this holiday season.
