The Bloggers Who Inspire the
World to Help Others . . .
. . . inspire us and teach us how to be more direct in teaching our children to serve, in teaching our children to be kind.
These blogs are where I go to find great ideas to serve with my children.
Megan of Coffee Cups and Crayons created a series of 52 Weeks of Acts of Kindness. Each week there is a focus on an act of kindness idea. Some weeks you get to hear her discuss kindness with other likeminded parents and hear insights on how they implement ideas and the concept of kindness in their homes. And, guess what? The ideas are totally doable for kids! Seriously!

Amy of Teach Mama and We Teach Group is a community builder! Her work is centered around children, supporting others, and sharing good ideas and strong knowledge on how to educate kids. There is a Giving Back section in Teach Mama that shares links and ideas on how to give back to the community. Not only that, but after you take a look at that section, go learn and be amazed and find insight with all the other categories on Teach Mama . . . a treasure box for parents and caregivers!
Amy’s site We Teach Group IS community! Members range from parents to caregivers to day care providers, it is a place to share and learn from one another.

Deirdre of JDanielFour’s Mom is a blogger with the kindest heart! She not only provides great content and ideas, she is always supportive of others! It is no surprise that she involves her son in service activities like Hunting for a Way to Fight Hunger. She elevated a great service act into a super fun color activity as well!

Kim and Amanda of The Educators’ Spin On It are experienced classroom teachers and moms. No surprise to find that they have great ideas for our kids to help the teachers in all of our schools. I really like the postTeacher School Supply Box, and they share several other ideas on how to show appreciation and teach children to be kind.
