“Mom, I’ve got an idea to help the homeless,” excited, Big Brother rushed into the car.
“Yeah, and we were talking and I have some creek cleanup idea,” Little Brother adamantly added.
I sat in the front seat of our aging white Honda and listened as they outlined very fun ideas that they wanted to try for service projects this summer.
“So, can we do it?”
“One of the things you need to do is budget out what things are going to cost, and then we can get started,” I replied.
About an hour later, the boys had their budget goals and a plan to raise the money . . . they were going to pet sit. They call their business “Bros Who Care” Pet Sitters! And I realized that we are going to have a very busy summer.
I love having my summers filled with swimming, playing, camping, and kindness. Last year, Pennies of Time hosted summer events igniting kindness in our communities. They events were so popular that we are bringing them back, better than ever!
Check them out and I look forward to seeing you around this summer as we all have a Summer of Kindness!
“Mom, I’m boooooored.”
“Mom, he’s hitting me.”
“Mom, she’s touching me.”
Reality is that we hear the phrase “I’m bored” way too often during ‘down time’ of holidays or summer break. And, often times, the amount of arguments overwhelm.
Instead of the parents (that’s us) working trying to fill the day, let’s get our kids working on helping others and being kind. As we do acts of kindness, gratitude grows, entitlement diminishes, and kindness ripples out into the community. Total win for everyone here!
Pennies of Time is providing programming to help you have a Summer of Kindness!
A Kindness Party with all things related to kindness and motivating kids, families, and communities to do good!
Join us for ideas, giveaways, tips, resources, and FUN with a great bunch of Kindness Experts!
