Five Things for Today: December 1, 2020



1. It’s Giving Tuesday!  If you want some ideas for where to donate, the GIVE page here on the blog has a long list of charities and causes, all of them shared by KFDC readers. (And if you have one you’d like to highlight, leave a comment on that page or this one, and I’ll add it.)


2. Volunteering is another way to give, and Martha’s Table has opportunities available.  Joyful Grocery Bagging, Food Order Support, Martha’s Outfitters Clothing Support are some of the ways to help out that kids ages 12 and up can do, too.  All shifts take place on weekdays, so consider signing up for one during the Winter Break from school.


3. A gift for younger children that lets them give back:  Little Loving Hands provides parents and caregivers with a fun way to teach kids about kindness in their world, their community, and their homes through subscription craft boxes.  Most of the crafts that are completed are sent back to Little Loving Hands in an included prepaid envelope to be donated to a charity. The boxes are specially designed for elementary-school kids, but fun for all ages!


4.  A long list of businesses offering discounts to first responders. And here is one for teachers (plus this biz I happened to see). Forward to all you know who qualify — so well deserved!


5. A heartwarming HONY story about giving a great surprise.
