Feel-good summer fun

June 30, 2010 at 12:13 pm Leave a comment

With the dog days of summer in full swing, why not fill some of that time with fun and meaningful projects for the kids?  From the tried-and-true lemonade stands, to hosting a backyard GIVE-Together, to a “field trip” to the Birthday Blessings facility, plan a little feel-good fun for your family this summer and help your kids help homeless kids.

Some of our favorite ideas include:

  • ALL AGES:  Organize a gift collection drive at your neighborhood swim/tennis club
  • Tweens & Teens:  Host a “Bucks for Birthdays” Movie Night ($X donation includes pizza, popcorn and a movie at your home or neighborhood clubhouse)
  • Tots to Ten: Lemonade Stand (Always fun, always a winner!)
  • ADULTS/FAMILIES:  Cookout for a Cause / Block Party (Invite neighbors and friends for burgers and dogs; organize kid-friendly games & activities; request $X donation or have guests bring a new gift to help support Birthday Blessings)
  • ALL AGES: “Field Trip” to Birthday Blessings! Bring the kids—bring the neighbors’ kids—and come enjoy a tour of our facility, an up-close look at our “toy store,” and participate in a fun service project to benefit homeless children living in the greater Charlotte area.

Whatever you choose to do, we’d love to help!  Let us know what ideas you have and how we can help.
