Challenge: Clean Water Family Kindness - Giveaway #PGMom #CleanWater

I am continuously reading how today's society is self-centered and that the next generation is only out for themselves.  That we are raising a generation of narcissists.   I believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that we are in fact raising the next generation to be caring, compassionate and kind.


Show Kindness at Home and Afar

 Kind gestures, both big and small, go a long way to creating a better world. With the help of the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water program, a little gesture will go a long way to making a big difference.

We are long time child sponsors through World Vision Canada.  My children are well aware that we are helping not only a girl on the other side of the world, but we are also helping a family and community through our sponsorship.   I first became a child sponsor through World Vision when I was 17 years old.  This child we are now sponsoring has been 'ours' for the last 11 years.  We've enjoyed watching her grow up and take a lot of pleasure in receiving her bi-yearly reports.  To us, she is an extension of our family.   My oldest daughter often speaks of wanting to take a trip to Africa to meet her.  

In our own community my husband and oldest daughter are volunteers within Scouts Canada.  Both are leaders and spend a lot of their free time with young boys and girls in our town.  It's an invaluable experience for both of them.  

It is easy to show kindness - here are a few ideas to get you started. 
  • Encourage your children to pick a charity to support, based on their own passions and interests
  • Get your kids involved with a local youth organization, where they will have the opportunity to participate regularly in community initiatives
  • With our never-ending winter, does an elderly neighbour need a hand shovelling the driveway? 
  • Know a new mom who could use a surprise home cooked meal delivery to beat the winter blahs? Show your children how easy it is to make an impact.
P&G and Walmart Clean Water Initiative 

 Since April 2014, Canadians like you have come out in droves to support the initiative, raising more than 20 million days of clean drinking water for families around the world P&G has pledged to donate the equivalent of one day of clean drinking water for every participating P&G household product* purchased in Walmart stores or online at Walmart.ca from February 19 to March 19, 2015. Together, we  can make a difference in someone’s life just by doing our regular weekly shop.

 One small P&G purification packet quickly turns 10 litres of dirty, potentially deadly, water into clean, drinkable water. 

Challenge: Share How You are Showing Kindness in Your Community

Share your tip for teaching your little ones about helping people in need, whether they are close to home or far away. How do you encourage your children to lend a hand in their local and global communities?

And, don't forget your P&G purchases at Walmart are changing lives with the Clean Water Initiative!

Giveaway: Canadians, enter to win an amazing prize pack, full of  P&G goodies * all pricing at the discretion of the retailer.   (value $95.00)!

I'm teaching my kids kindness by showing them. We donate used clothes and toys.

fredamans said...

I don't know that I 'teach' kindness, but I always smile at my neighbors and people who pass by. I always pick up my dog poop, (which most don't, sadly enough), and I do not litter. I also have been known to pick up trash I see while walking in my neighborhood, and put it in the proper garbage or recycling can.

Jonnie (JB) said...

I make sure to be a friendly neighbour and support causes in my community, like the food bank and homeless shelters. I also talk to my kids about the struggles faced by people around the world that we are lucky enough not to have to worry about.
