Weekly Mission: Recognize a Professional
Recognize a Professional
(e.g. fire dept., animal shelter, seniors' home, maintenance staff)
These people do so much for us on a daily basis; let’s recognise them for all that they do. Show your appreciation by acknowledging the work that they have done. You can get involved by volunteering your time, or baking for them, however it can be as simple as letting them know they’re doing a good job. We encourage you to do anything you can think of that recognizes a helping service this week.
Celebrate You, Celebrate the Hero
Tuesday- Deliver baked goods to your local police station or fire rescue.
Wednesday- Read to seniors at your local seniors’ home; they love company!
Thursday- Write a letter to a member of the military serving overseas to show your support and send your thanks for all that they do.
Friday- Thank your teachers, secretaries and principals today for all that they do.
Weekly Mission: Donate
This week’s mission is to Donate! There are so many ways that you can offer support to people in need of a little extra support. It can be donating large or small amounts of money to Sick Kids, Unicef, Red Cross, or other local organizations of your choice. You can donate gently worn or new clothing that you no longer need to your local thrift store or winter coats can be donated to Coats for Kids. Canned food or food items can be donated to Gleaners Food Bank, or other Food Banks in your area. Toys can often be donated to Toy Drives campaigns that are often popular around this season.
You can also volunteer your time; this is a busy time for non-profit and charitable organizations. They can often use a helping hand to lighten the immense weight off of each employee.
If everyone gives a little, no one has to give a lot.
“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.”
Celebrate You, Celebrate the Hero!
Tuesday- Host a bake sale and donate the collected funds to a charity or organization of your choice.
Wednesday- Donate those old toys that are collecting dust and taking up space in your bedroom to a local Toy Drive
Thursday- Spend some time at a local animal shelter; our fur friends need some love this time of year too!
Friday- Volunteer an hour of your time to helping someone in need. Maybe an elderly neighbour who needs help with yard work, or serving a hot meal at your local soup kitchen- every bit helps.
Quinte Trash Bash - April 26, 2014
It’s time for the annual Quinte Trash Bash – our community-wide spring cleanup!
This year’s Trash Bash will take place on Saturday, April 26 between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm.
Can you spare 20 minutes to help your community by picking up litter off the streets, parks, or neighbourhoods? If so, all you need to do is:
It’s that easy!
For more information visit http://www.quintetrashbash.ca/
On April 26th let’s all pitch in and do our part!
P.S. If you would like to tell your Facebook friends that you plan to participate and encourage them to do the same, join the Facebook event by clicking here.
How earth conscious are you on a regular basis? Well, this week we want you to up the ante! There is so much that we can do to be green, and we want you to get involved in helping to clean up our environment! Instead of buying a case of plastic water bottles, you can purchase a reusable filtered water bottle! Bring your old cellphones to any cellphone service providers so that they are able to dispose of the electronics safely.
Another way you can get involved is by organizing a Trash Bash! You can gather a group of friends to host your own trash pick-up party, you can enlist your whole school, or you can initiate your whole town/city to participate in cleaning up our planet! Grab a few people, some garbage bags, gloves and help keep our planet clean and garbage free, and afterwards celebrate with your friends!
“Out of all of those millions and millions of planets floating around in space, this is our planet, this is our little one. We’ve got to be aware of it and take care of it.”
