Disclaimer: I have participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
Donating and giving are words my children are very familiar with as we began last year with Heartfelt Acts. Each month we tried to show our children how giving is such an important part of life and helping others. I was thrilled to get to work with The Motherhood on this campaign helping children in my own community.
Making sure my children understand the act of giving and helping others in need is a big lesson in life we want to be sure they have mastered by the time they are out on their own. Anytime we can include them in donating items for anyone in need, even pets, we make sure they are there. I know they are proud to be apart of it too. If we can help the children in our community, we are there!! Sign us up! Here is how you can get involved and learn more about this amazing campaign.
About Champions for Kids and SIMPLE Giving
· Champions for Kids makes it simple to give children in local communities the resources they need to thrive. Helping others does not have to come in large doses. Champions for Kids seeks to ignite generational change by fostering a ‘habit of giving’ among youth and parents in America. We seemed to do well when we made it a monthly family goal to give. It works!
Did you know that 9.8 million kids – more than ever before – get free or reduced price school breakfast on an average day, but 10.6 million eligible kids go without? Hunger has a huge effect on how a child performs at school. In fact, 9 out of 10 teachers say having a healthy breakfast is a key to academic achievement. Makes me sad to think of my own kids being hungry and breaks my heart to know others are going hungry.
SIMPLE Giving is a Champions for Kids program that makes it simple for you to help kids in your community. To ensure children can eat breakfast and stay focused in school, Champions for Kids is teaming up with Kellogg Company and Diamond Foods for a SIMPLE Giving program.
You can participate by simply purchasing and donating breakfast food items at your local participating Walmart from April 21 through May 5. If your Walmart store is participating, simply purchase breakfast foods and place them in the purple donation bins at the front of the store after checkout.

All of the donations go to children in the school district where the Walmart store is located!
The Motherhood is joining Champions for Kids along with Kellogg Company and Diamond Foods for a Twitter party to spread the word about a simple way we can help ensure that kids in our communities enjoy a nutritious breakfast that will help them stay focused in school!
During the party they will be sharing more ways to give in our communities, including Champions For Kids' Simple Services Projects. Simple Service Projects are easy ways for people to help the kids in their own community through four easy steps -- Gather, Learn, Give and Share!
