Encourage your kids and their friends to use the holidays to create a campaign about something that really matters to them. Posters, flyers, art, a short film, photography, music, performance, dance, a website – are all great ways to spread the word.
We’re frequently asked by parents how your kids can give back to community – here’s something that can be done at home, in the holidays and all year round!
Kids, please share your campaigns with us. Send us an email email@example.com so we can feature your campaign on our Facebook and website.
Wondering how/where to get started? Check out these causes and websites. Remember, it’s about letting our kids find what matters to them, and then letting them create an initiative of their own.
