For me, the holidays are about the giving of charitable acts. So, this post is to honor this past Tuesday’s “Make a Difference” day of giving, the “kidsthatdogood” participants and ways each of us can make a difference. When kids find ways to do good in their communities, they inspire hope in us all and teach us lessons of compassion through selfless deeds. These are the gifts for our souls.


Jake and Max are Latino twin brothers from NJ who were frustrated that they could not volunteer in certain areas due to their age. Many charities required them to be at least 14 years old. So they were constantly looking for ways to give back. They used all of their birthdays as a fundraiser for a charity of their choice including: donations of computers to the local children’s library, Toughbook computers to the local fire department, monies to Cancer organizations, food pantries and so much more. When they turned 13 they realized that other kids also wanted to get involved but didn’t know how. That’s when they came up with the idea of Kids That Do Good. They wanted to be a resource for kids, at any age, and show that its quite easy to make a difference. It just takes one person to make a huge impact on someone else’s life.


Steven is no stranger to charitable thinking. Recently he completed a project that collected 1,400 books for the Global Steward Initiative sending them to Tanzania and Malawi so they can set up community libraries in those countries. He and his family are consistently looking for ways they can all get involved which can be a challenge when you have two younger sisters and participation can be limited. That’s why Steven finds unique opportunities to give back to those in need and is a perfect Board member for KidsThatDoGood.

Above every thing else, be kind to everyone you encounter. The holidays hold much sadness for many and your soft words and gentle smile might be the simple gift needed. May Grace and kindness be your holiday cheer.

Say thank you to your local fire fighters or police officers by surprising them with homemade sweet treats.

Tape coupons to different products around the grocery store, like a coupon for diapers

Hand out rolls of quarters at the laundromat.

Write thank you notes to people that you don’t say “thank you” to often enough — like your favorite barista who always gets your order right, or the gym’s instructor for creating a workout you love.

Buy a bouquet of flowers for a friend, just because.

Pay the bill for someone sitting alone at a restaurant. Or anyone in the restaurant who inspires you in some way.

Create a diaper-change care package and leave it in a public bathroom. At some point, an unprepared mom in need of a diaper for her baby will love you for this!

Next time there’s a sale on canned goods, buy extra and donate it to your local food bank.

Offer rides to your elderly neighbors.
