Giving Month Ideas Please Comment

So I am starting a project and would love to get ideas from all of you. I have some to start me out but I think by the end of the month I am going to be drawing blanks.

Everyday for a month my family is going to help another person. Rather it be helping a family that needs clothing, thanking the fire department for saving peoples lives, donating books on how to cope with death to a child that has seen to many, etc.

 

So I am asking you lovely ladies of Cafemom; if you have any ideas please leave them here. Thank you so much.

Great idea! How about going to a childrens ward and just reading to the children and maybe take a few gifts?

 We live near Kings Island. So Cinci is the closest main city. :)

That is a good idea

 Visit a nursing home.. some of those people NEVER get visitors.

"adopt" an animal at the zoo

Donate old glasses ( our Lyon's club takes them not sure about in your area)

Donate old cell phones

You and the kids could make paper from old paper  (saving tres and recycling awareness) http://www.pioneerthinking.com/makingpaper.html

another thing you can do.. is hide dollar bills all over town. set a budget, say 5 dollars.. just for simplicity.. and hide them.. for example, go to a grocery store and tape one to the back of a cereal box, put one in a book in a library, in a pocket of pants at wal mart.. etc. (i have done this before.. its fun deciding where to hide the dollar bills)

i will think of some more and post them for you

 Jesse thank you so much you have some wonderful ideas.

How do you adopt an animal at the zoo. I will have to check into that.

 Go to the website of the zoo you are looking to support. There should be info on how the zoo of your choice does it. San Diego zoo has a wonderful adoption program
