Giving back is very important to me and I hope to pass that onto Micah. One way that we give back is by donating our outgrown or collecting dust household items. When I can get free non-perishable items free (or cheap) with coupons I will give them away to help others. But here is a new way to help & get your child learning about the giving process! It is called Members Unite! You talk with your child(ren) about which project they think is most worthy of support and then vote! And then make sure to check back each week to vote to ensure your favorite project makes it through to the next round!
For Micah he was most drawn to the images of a puppy & a picture of a baby so I explained which each picture represented. The puppy picture is actually a soldiar holding a bulldog, the cause is “Give the Healing Power of Man’s Best Friend to Wounded Vets”. And the picture of a baby is called “Give Infants a Lease on Life” which will provide 20 infants with milk for 500 days (over a year’s worth of sustenance) if chosen! After I talked about both options he picked the picture of the baby and voted five stars to “Give Infants a Lease on Life”. I later went in and filled out the stars on the rest of the options, hey what can I say? I have a three year old, we have to start somewhere right?
For as little as $5 a month, you’ll be able to take an active role in deciding which projects get funding, and how much funding they get. And 100% of your monthly contribution will go toward the winning projects.
