I love being a member of the Pampers Baby Board because they enable me to make a difference in my community. A few months ago Pampers released this amazing commercial about making the world better for baby. Please take a few moments to watch this video.
What did you think of that video? Did it inspire you in any way?
This video inspired me in so many ways and I want to do so many different things to help my community and all of them will make life better for the future. I want to help end child hunger, I want to help homeless people. I want to give Christmas presents to those in need this year and I want to help teachers. Pampers offered me a sizeable grant to start helping my community. The first thing I set out to do was help local teachers in my community. I have some backpacks filled up with school supplies. These back packs are going to be given to the PTA of the school that our kids used to go to. I’m really excited to see teachers being supported. We home school now so I know how hard teachers work. I have a hard time teaching two kids while teachers teach classrooms of 24 – 30 different kids. Thanks to my partnership with Staples and what I purchased I have over $500 worth in school supplies to donate.
I have also partnered with Denny’s and to give to No Kid Hungry. I hosted a giveaway to inspire others to give. Only 2 people actually made donations so I was very sad about those results but I was still able to give to help the kids out thanks to both Denny’s and Pampers. I LOVE my job. I love that my partners enable me to do these things. Because they work together it helps me stretch and maximize the grant and help even more people.
Another thing we did was we helped a homeless man. When we were in LA we saw them everywhere and our hearts were broken for these people. I see them and they look so hopeless so I decided to have a bag ready for the next time we saw one. I purchased food and when we were driving home from LA we stopped at rest stop and there was a guy there that had a sign saying he needed help. Any kind of help! So I decided to give him a bag of food. I had Miles give it to him and the guy said thank you and smiled at me. As we were driving away I saw that he found a bag of popcorn and started eating it. You know that if everyone did something small for someone else this world would change.
I know that my kids see what I’m doing and that they are developing a heart of generosity also. We have about $1500 left to share with others and I’m pretty sure we are going to celebrate a few families this Christmas. But even before that I’m going to get some diapers for a family at my church that is going through a financial struggle and I can’t wait to surprise her. Thank you Pampers for inspiring change!
