Clean Water Family Kindness Challenge #CleanWater #PGmom #Giveaway

Since April 2014, Canadians have come out in droves to support the P&G and Walmart Clean Water Program, raising more than 20 million days of clean drinking water for families around the world and propelling the initiative to within 20 per cent of its year-long donation goal. P&G has pledged to donate the equivalent of one day of clean drinking water for every participating P&G household product purchased in Walmart stores or online at Walmart.ca until March 19, 2015. By stocking up on P&G products, you’ll be taking a small step to make a big difference. 


Participating P&G Brands include:

How do you encourage your children to lend a hand in their local and global communities?

On a quarterly basis our family also donates items to daycares and donation centres. 

When Hannah is a little older I would love for her and I to donate time with a charity that takes care of animals...it will just be hard for both of us not to want to take them all home!

Hannah didn't have a birthday party this year, but when she does, she'll have "Twonie Parties". Guest will bring two twonies - one will be given to Hannah (allowing her to pick one birthday present versus receiving many she doesn't need) and the other will be given to a charity of Hannah's choice.

  12. I let my son see my husband and I helping out, either donating toys, money, books or time as well as letting him see us taking turns and being respectful to eachother. We never want to point it out to boast but with a small child asking many questions its a great way to start a conversation and inspire creativity.
