Filling Our Cart, Filling Our Hearts. SIMPLE Ways to Give. #AbbottCFK #CBias

I am grateful, beyond reasonable expression, that I have never known the worry of where my children will be sleeping tonight.

Weighing the need of a meal with medical care, has never made me weep.

I have never had to face the quiet, hungry eyes of my child, with empty hands.

I have never given enough of myself or my resources. 

I am one of millions.  

Millions of people, just like me, 
who have caring and compassion in their hearts 
that fail to make the simple effort
 to make a world of difference,
 to a mother in despair.

Not nearly enough.
Not often enough.

With aim to inspire to serve, Champions for Kids and Abbott are encouraging millions to take a SIMPLE action that will make an impactful difference in their communities.

INSTRUCTIONS: Gather your friends, family, and coworkers to provide nutritious snacks for children in need. Items like Pediasure®, Pediasure SideKicks®, and ZonePerfect® bars would be great to share! Give the Abbott Nutrition snack packs to an organization in your community that serves children (like a school, religious organization, or nonprofit). Click here to send us your great Report and Photos!

With a giving plan outlined, with SIMPLE directions, giving has never been easier!  My family, committed to more giving and volunteering this year, than ever before, selected the City Rescue Mission of Lansing to donate our Abbott Nutrition Snack Pack to.  A caring organization who have been serving my community since 1911, but unable to provide food baskets due to insufficient donations.

As we shopped, I was struck by how SIMPLE it is to make such a difference.

For the price of one quick meal out for my family, I could provide significant daily nutrition to three children for a week or healthy snacks daily for six children.

Don't let your good intentions become regrets of inaction.  

Become One of Millions. 

 Rally your family, your friends and your neighbors to perform a SIMPLE service project.

Fill your heart
while filling those in need
with hope.

I am big on volunteer work for my family. I think it is important that my children know there are less fortunate people out there. Usually though most of our volunteer work has an educational tone to it.

I hope that you reach many with this post..even the smallest step of action can be the first of many in the direction of social change we so desperately need.

What a wonderful project. We do a lot of charity but nothing close to home. I think once the kids get a bit older I would love to have them volunteer (along with myself) in some local places. I want them to never forget how many are without and how easy it is to make an impact by just stepping up.

There is definitely movement behind this campaign. I hope we get a ground swell at the twitter party. There really can be millions of champions.
