    My daughter is a Brownie and with her help, we are one of the leaders of her troop. In addition, my two sons are in Cubscouts and my daughter also helps me with being a leader for the Cubscouts. For both troops, we do monthly food collections for our local food pantry and drop off the food monthly. My daughter helps with packing and carrying the packages into the car and food pantry. In addition at Christmas time, we also do a collection from both troops for toys for needy local children.
    Thank you so much for offering this wonderful prize. My daughter would be estatic if we won.

    Three years ago, my son and his wife became part of the inaugural committeed that started Walk Now for Autism, Sacramento. As a result, our whole circle of family and friends have become involved. They have raised over $500,000 for Autism research. Our next Walk is in early October! Can’t wait.

    I just got elected to be vice president of my children’s PTA at their school. My platform will be making their school lunches healthier with the premise explaining to them that a good percentage of our schools are poverty stricken. This one meal at school may be the only meal this child eats all day – it really should be a healthy one!

    I worked at my shelter for years and even when my son was a little baby I would strap him on in a sling and go pick up trash around my neighborhood. Also, I have a neighbor who does not leave his house at all and we often bring dinner to him.My son is not even two and my niece is only three but we are trying to teach them to be very loving and always kind. My niece often gives her toys away to Goodwill just because she is so sweet. I would win this for her.

    Our family is working on becoming more involved in our community aside from just church involvement (our church is local, right in the heart of our downtown.) Tonight we are actually attending a concert at the courthouse where our friends are having a lemonade stand to raise money for a family’s adoption. I stay involved personally through local tweet-ups via Twitter (and we meet in person, kind of like the new-day Welcome Wagon!) but we’re working to expand it to involve our whole families, too! :)

    My daughter just turned four years old. She sang in

    church today and helped with the offering. She has come

    to me spontaneously several times and asked if she

    could give a special toy to one of her visiting

    friends. She loves to meet new people and play with

    anyone and everyone. I am so proud of her open and

    welcoming spirit. While she is still a little young to

    participate in many organized volunteer organizations,

    we are working in that direction. Every year we ask her

    friends to donate art supplies to the local moms club

    (www.summervillemoms.com) instead of bringing presents.

    She has visited the local animal shelter to play with

    animals and love them for a few minutes, so they are

    not alone all day.

    Her most recent obsession is telling everyone that they

    are THE BEST mom, dad, friend, or “stephen” (eg) in the

    world. Well, she tells my husband that he is the best

    daddy in the whole wide CITY. That is just too cute to

    correct. *smile*

    We are collecting material to make some special pillow

    cases for kids in the children’s hospital network that

    is supported by ShineOn. My daughter is going to use

    fabric paint to paint special designs on some of them.

    We are going to organize this as event for several of

    her friends to participate in. She can’t wait to make a

    pillow that will make someone feel better!

    While I certainly don’t want her to grow up too fast. I

    can’t wait to know the person that she is destined to

    be. I am so happy that she is my child. I can’t wait to

    see the good that she is going to bring into this

    world.

    Our family tries to teach our children to give by donating our time and money to worthy organizations or people we personally know who could use help. Rather then giving our goods to a thrift store or putting them in a yard sale, we GIVE them to someone who could really use them or an organization that will distribute them freely to those in need. I spend lots of time at the grade school helping kids with reading and math or anything else the teachers need.

    My 4yr old helps her Sunday School teachers put things out for Sunday School and clean up!! She is their little helper and they just adore her. She even helps the other kids in her class. LOL She has such a giving heart. She gace some friends doll clothes so that way their dolls can have a wardrobe. Best thing she was never told! ;) They say she is an “old-soul” :) Anyways, my girl wants to give her cousin (who is her age and going through a rough time with her family) an American girl doll and we dont have the funds to help out. So it would be nice to help my daughter to share :)

    Our family helps to organize, support, and recruit for charitable organizations that support families affected by autism. Is your child comfortable with children who have mental or physical disabilities? My 8 yr old daughter volunteers to teach and model social skills to children with autism, because her big brother has autism. She is incredibly patient and understanding, and finds ways to reach the kids through songs, games, and just sitting quietly beside them. She volunteers with autism sibling support groups and shares her feelings about having a brother with autism who cannnot communicate nor care for himself. She is an amazing open, loving and giving child who would probably choose to share or donate this doll if she won! Thank you for an opportunity to honor and recognize her contributions to making the world a better place for children with disabilities.

    My eleven year old daughter has been an active Girl Scout since she was five years old. She’s grown into quite an amazing leader in her troop, and when the girls are brainstorming ideas for projects, my daughter inevitably suggests and/or supports something that helps others: donating items to the pediatric ward at a local hospital, planting flowers and trees in the community, collecting items for the food shelter, etc. I am so proud of her empathetic and caring personality and her ability to follow through with plans to help others.

    I encourage by 9 year old daughter to give by taking her to serve in soup kitchens regularly. Also, she has a piggy bank that is separated into three sections. One is for spending, one is for saving and one is for tithing to a church or charity. All money she gets; bday, allowance, etc. gets separated into threes. She really enjoys this process and is starting to understand the value of money.

    My daughter is 6 years old and she loves to help out in her community, especially in her school. She likes to save Box Tops for Education to help raise money for her school. She donates school uniforms that she has outgrown (that are still in good shape), and she helps other kids in her class that need extra assistance. If she sees trash, she will pick it up. She takes pride in her school and community and encourages others to do the same.

    My family and my school helped out at BCS (Bethany Christian Services). BCS helps parents who would like to adopt,find a child from all over the world! It also helps find children foster parents, and it helps people who would like to sponsor a child. Bethany is dedicated to find nice,loving,christian homes for children. When we went, we made cards for some of the children and parents. Some of them even wrote back!! I wrote to a little boy in California who was 5. He was rescued from a abusive home and is now with loving,christian parents. I covered the card in sports things. When he wrote back he said he loved his card and he hung it up in his bedroom!:) his parents also said that they were very thankful for people like me who help Bethany. They also said BCS was one of the best things to happen to them! (next to their son of course) it felt great and i hope more people help out at BCS! i love helping my comunity

    I volunteered a lot until I became pregnant, then I needed to focus my energies on the homefront for a while. I do plan to introduce my daughter to volunteering soon, probably through the win-win of visiting folks at a retirement home. When she’s older we’ll start back on the community type projects I used to do.

    Our family donates our gently worn clothes to our local community center. Our kids help packing up things that no longer fit them. We also donate food items to them, especially around the holidays.

    Our family makes a positive impact in our community in several ways. First of all, my husband and I are both teachers at two different Title 1 schools. Title 1 schools are schools where the majority of students are living in poverty and on free or reduced school lunch. We chose Title 1 schools on purpose because we feel that we can make the largest impact in an environment that needs positive role models. We are involved in community involvement and charity programs through both of our schools, and also our church. My daughter is only 5 but she is already involved in children’s ministry outreach programs through our church.

    My daughter is so generous. She has offered to give this doll to her best friend because her friend does not already have an American Girl doll!
    She likes to bake goodies with me to take to the nursing home where her great-grandparents reside, and even reads stories to some of the residents. A lot of children do not like to be around the elderly, but she seems to have a connection with them. I promise, my child was born middle-aged and keeps getting older by the year! lol
    Please consider her for this prize. Thanks!!!

    My husband and I run a weekly Bible club at our church. Our focus is on kids who has a parent in the military although any child is welcome. So many of the kids really have a hard time when a parent is on deployment. My teenage daughters help us run it. My 10 year old attends the club. Her “job” is to greet and welcome any new kids. It’s a good thing she’s not shy!

I am fortunate enough to know which residents need someone to visit because i see them on a daily basis. My children love going to the nursing home and talking with the elderly and they also enjoy it because they get to see what I do for a living!

    My 8 yr old daughter volunteers to teach and model social skills to children with autism, because her big brother has autism. She is incredibly patient and understanding, and finds ways to reach the kids through songs, games, and just sitting quietly beside them. She volunteers with autism sibling support groups and shares her feelings about having a brother with autism who cannnot communicate nor care for himself. She is an amazing open, loving and giving child who would probably choose to share or donate this doll if she won! Thank you for an opportunity to honor and recognize her contributions to making the world a better place for children with disabilities.

    I am just happy i have a home a shelter water family. If I had million dollars I would want to spend it on the homeless and not on me. Everytime I see a homeless person I would love to give them money or water or food. One time I got inout and a person was there and i was deeply hungry but you have to give up your food and water for people who cant get any. I would always give stuff to children who need it. I love doing cancer walks and stuff. I love to help people. This is 100 percent true.

    Two years ago in art class I had an idea that I wanted to help out animals, so I made an animal rights petition for people to sign, 1 thing led to another and me and 3 other friends ended up doing a donation/fundraiser for Kent Animal Shelter and we ended up raising over $300 dollars in actual money, and over $2000 dollars worth of blankets/food/toys/etc. It was a big sucess (sp) and when we delivered it we had over 30 big bags of stuff, and we got to see all the animals we were helping out. It was so much fun and it felt so good to give. If you go on the website for kent animal shelter theres a pic of four girls (im the blond one).
