We are family that gives back. I was raised to do service work as a part of our church community and I really enjoyed it. I have worked in soup kitchens, packed boxes of food at a food bank, ridden on a truck to collect food from restaurants, helped to clean and make small repairs in the home and more. I have done what I could in my community for as long as I can remember. In my 20’s, I joined the Junior League here in Atlanta because I really love their mission of giving back. I also give back to our local children’s hospital in a variety of ways including being a part of their blogger advisory board. I am raising my children the same way. We participate in many activities here in our local community. They have helped packed boxes of food at the food bank with me along with:

  • packing seeds to send to different countries around the world.
  • making water filters for a family to take on a mission trip.
  • making packets of shampoo and conditioner for shelters.
  • cleaning up a local park.
  • planting a garden at their school.
  • and many other projects.

Giving back is who were are as a family and individuals. We were thrilled to partner with Glad and to support their Glad to Give Back mission.

The Glad Products Company believes that communities are built around human connections and giving back to those around you…they recognized the role its products play in giving around the country, and they’re proud to lend a hand in an even bigger way with Glad to Give.

Celebrity philanthropists such Tyrese Gibson, Ayesha Curry and Kid President have partnered with the Glad to Give program with the hopes of inspiring acts of giving this year. The program asks everyone to share what they are glad to give and how they aim to inspire similar actions from others. Glad aims to inspire people to get involved and to show how rewarding giving back can truly be.

My children and I made the decision on how we wanted to give back. The kids decided that they wanted to do the research and then we would discuss a few options. They were pretty set on baking something for their project so that narrowed down where we could give freshly baked goods. My daughter asked me about the place I give shampoo and conditioner to a few times per year. I deliver accumulated, unused hotel toiletries and routinely donate them to a women’s shelter through a friend. My kids said that they wanted to make cookies and after getting the go-ahead, we baked 10 dozen cookies to take and had them taken to the shelter. We were thrilled to be able to bake cookies for our local women’s shelter. My kids loved working together to make and then package the cookies. It was nice to be able to do something like this with them. I encourage you to join the movement and do the same. Share your own Glad to Give story using the hashtag #GladtoGive on social media.
