You know how much your kids look forward to Valentine's Day... The classroom parties, the cards, the chocolates and a chance to tell everyone how much they
love like them. Did you know that there are heartful ways to recognize this day as well? ...and why not get your kids involve in the process!
Free the Children "BEE My Valentine" Campaign focuses on helping local mamas from developing communities in their bee-keeping and honey harvesting efforts as a means of providing an alternative income for their families. Gifts range from $25 to support the formation of a women's bee-keeping group, $50 to fund a mama's honey-harvesting supplies for a year so she can provide for her family or $500 to start a mama's new bee-keeping business, complete with materials and training. Visit Bee My Valentine - Free the Children for more information.
Me to We Artisans has a new limited-edition Share the Love Collection of accessories handcrafted by women in Free The Children countries. Inspired by love, the jewellery ranges form $18.99 to $149.99. Visit the site at Me to We - Share The Love Collection
Sick Kids Get Better Gifts offers a few ways to donate. You can contribute to their funds to purchase craft supplies ($20) for children who are spending time in the hospital so they can make their own special holiday crafts... especially when they know their friends are back at school sharing marshmallow hearts! You could also give a donation to support a 30 Days on Heart Saturation Monitor ($40) which help monitor a patient's heart and ease some worries for the parents and caregivers. Visit their website at SickKidsGetBetterGifts.com for more information and ways to give.
Remember to Share the Love! Happy Heart Day!
