This wasn't my plan.
I've always known that I would grow up to be a teacher. So when I got my first teaching job I thought I had achieved what I was put on this planet to do. Fast forward 15 years to a homeschooling mom starting a business and a podcast. This was not my plan.
My gut said no.
A 6-year-old in our neighborhood was diagnosed with leukemia in 2020. A devastating diagnosis in the midst of a pandemic. When I found out she needed a blood stem cell transplant I started working with other moms and Be The Match in hopes of finding this sweet girl a donor.
Alice, 7 at the time, hovered around as I made phone calls and organized meetings. But those five simple words of, "Mommy, can I help you?" stopped me in my tracks.
At first I said no, this was a grown-up job.
She was persistent.
She wanted to help.
I gave in.
We settled on the idea of making bracelets to sell to raise money for her neighborhood friend. She ended up donating $1,800.
Kids are capable of more than we give them credit for.
My eyes have been opened.
Since that first time of giving in and saying yes to help from a 7-year-old, I've discovered:
- Countless, kid-friendly ways to get involved and give back with our youngest humans.
- Ways that tackle tough topics like homelessness, environmental concerns, and animal rights.
- Engaging, impactful and fun activities.
- Mental health benefits for both myself and my children.
- Kids willing to raise their hand, step up, and make a difference.
I'm all in.
