#Do1Give Day For Families – Giving Is A Family Affair

#Do1Give Day for families is a great way to involve all family members in the benefits of giving. If your kids are home schooling, #Do1Give Day can be part of their schooling. If your kids are younger, teaching them about giving is a great introduction to empathy, compassion and participating in their community. If you work from home, take a break and do your small act of giving as a family. It takes little time, but has a HUGE impact. If you are going to a place to employment, do your family give before or after work, or ask who ever is taking care of your kids to participate in #Do1GIve Day on April 21, 2021.

What will your family gain if they participate in #Do1Give Day? A lot of happiness, a great lesson in community giving and a boost in well-being. This will resonate to whomever you give to, spreading happiness far and wide on #Do1Give Day. How can anyone say no to this? Your give will take a few minutes, can be planned in advance and will inspire others to give as well.

Here are some great family giving ideas that will make your #Do1Give Day fun, happy and full of joy!

Help a Senior In Your Family or Community

Pick a senior either in your family or community who could benefit from a give. Drop off food, make their favorite meal, do a chore at their house, or send a card. This small give will make them feel great, appreciated and seen. The impact on their happiness and well-being all worth it. Make this a give on #Do1Give Day for families throughout your neighbourhood and inspire others to give as well.

Chalk It Up With Feel Good Outdoor Messages

My kids love this give. They could do this all day long, every day. Their #Do1Give for families last year was a huge happiness mural written on our drive way for all to see. There were rainbows, messages of hope and happiness, creative artwork and more! They felt great when creating it, and loved the comments our neighbours made after it was done. Anyone who walked by smiled. My boys watched through the window and high fived each other when they saw a smile from someone walking by. This happiness boost was great for our entire neighbourhood.

Make A Family Online Donation

It is great to teach our kids the power of giving. Why not show them how to donate online so they are aware how their donation can positively effect others. Decide as a family what you want to donate to; animals, people or the planet; and find some not for profit options that your kids can read about, and learn about. You can give to a global organization or a local one. Discuss with your family what is more important to them. Kids are great, and will steer you in the right direction. They will love that they have directed their give to an organization that assists something that is important to them.

Join 365give And Start A Giving Ritual

If your household could benefit from a little boost of happiness every day, join 365give as a family member and start a giving ritual. You can use April 21, 2021 as your first day and follow our 365give Challenge. Make giving part of your family habits and watch your kids get excited and creative about their giving. Check out the 365give Challenge and sign up on #Do1Give Day.

Make A Family Basket For Another Family

Local organizations can always benefit from a family basket. Your family can put items for kids, mothers and fathers into a large box and donate it to an local organization. Thinks school supplies, clothing, soap, shampoo, food items, and books. Each family member can list what they want to donate right from their own room. No shopping required as you will be amazed how items at home can be given to others.

Commit To Less Energy Use On April 21, 2021

This planet give will teach all of us how much electricity we use. Make a commitment to use less electricity by unplugging electrical devices and appliances. Turn off lights, don’t charge your phones all day, take an hour that is electricity free. Find creative ways to use less and help our planet.

Send A Letter Of Thanks To A Local Animal Shelter

A thank you means more some days than we know. Get everyone in the house to write or draw a thank you note to a local animal shelter and its volunteers. Now that is a great give!

Giving Makes Us and Others Happy

All of us could do a boost of happiness and well-being. #Do1Give Day was designed to do just this, spreading happiness globally as people give one day together. Join in the fun and inspire others to give on April 21. #Do1Give Day for families is as easy as 1, 2, 3 and a fun 30 minute (or less) break for a family.
