August POWerful Word – CHARITY – Week 3

While giving of our treasures and our talents is a wonderful way to help charities, sometimes, just sharing our time with others in need can be helpful. Think of the different groups of people, animals, or things, that could be better off if you spent time with them. How could you spend your time in a valuable way with (1) People who have to stay in the hospital (i.e. perform for them, tell them jokes, draw with them, read to them)? (2) Children who have special needs who are participating in Special Olympics or another sports program (i.e. cheer for them, be a coach, run with them, organize)? (3) Animals who don’t have homes who are cared for in a shelter (i.e. walk them, clean cages, feed them, pet them)? How could you spend your time letting brave military know you care (i.e. make care packages, draw pictures, write letters)? Good!

If you have time: Everyone in the family has strengths. What is a “strength” of each person in your family?
