This week I headed up to Walmart with Edison to shop for a SIMPLE service project for Champions for Kids and Spinbrush. The mission? To pick up some Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Tooth Tunes musical toothbrushes and gifts for kids in need.
Since it’s summer vacation, many families are struggling that much more to make ends meet since their children aren’t getting meals at school. Money for little extras like toothbrushes and toys might not be there so I decided to Spin Into Action! Conveniently, Northwest Center Kids, the developmental preschool program Sebby & Quincy attend is currently holding a food drive for low income families, so it was perfect timing for my donation! I love that Northwest Center is always involved with the community so I involve them in my SIMPLE service projects whenever I can.
I figured buckets and bubbles would be a great addition to getting some kids new Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Tooth Tunes musical toothbrushes and toothpaste! Bubbles always yell summer to me, and it’s something enjoyed by kids of all ages!
We just celebrated Quincy’s birthday too, so I asked my friends to bring a donation to the party with them for this SIMPLE service project! Two fellow bloggers and friends, Leanne of Rave and Review and Cristi of Motherhood Unadorned also brought some great things to be donated.
Join me in making a difference for Champions for Kids!
