Pennies of Time: Teach Kids to Serve is officially a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Pennies of Time is a resource for parents and volunteers to integrate into daily life more service projects and acts of kindness designed to teach kids to be kind, empathetic, and to recognize and respond to community needs. We have families across the world participating in our programs and sharing their ideas as we all work together to teach our kids to be kind and serve others.
We are putting supports in place to help those that want to do more kindness and serving with their kids. We found that people need cheerleaders and accountability partners. We now have the Pennies of Time Family Focused Adventure Program, which has support and accountability . . . 8 weeks of it! Of course the Twitter Chats, #servechat, will continue as well as sharing the acts of kindness and service projects that we do. As each new program rolls out, we will share it with you.
We’ve gathered a top-notch, compassionate group of parents that each implement kindness and serving activities with their kids. The Pennies of Time Board of Directors and Advisory Councils are deeply committed to this work. They are fun, engaging, and we are very lucky to have their support.
We want to thank our Partners that are working alongside us to help us all provide opportunities for families to serve together for kids to learn to be kind, even from their earliest years. If you know of a compassionate minded organization or business that believes strongly in the value of kindness and the efforts in serving others, please let us know. Our biggest goal is to share ideas and provide support for those that need it!
Virtual Kindness Summer Camp
As the other programming is coming out, Pennies of Time is partnering with About Proximity, Let’s Do Some Good Today, and Trust Me, I’m a Mom for 12 weeks of ideas and supports during the Virtual Kindness Summer Camp! No where else can you find this level of expertise and group of talented Camp Counselors! (And, even if you aren’t about to hit summer, please feel free to join in; the activities are not season specific.) I don’t want to give too much away, but it will be a smashingly fun time AND give you the tools and resources to do acts of kindness with your kids this summer . . . which we all know kills entitlement, fosters generosity, and results in everyone being kinder and happier. Go ahead, Join IN!
Also, in the news was the Pennies of Time Family, The Sjolseths.
American Profile: Community Table featured the Sjolseths in “How to Raise Kind Kids,” a feature article and on the front cover. Each of us had so much fun talking about what we do with others.
