Research shows that giving and gratitude are linked to a greater sense of satisfaction and happiness. Here are two simple ways to make appreciation a habit in your family.
Keep a Gratitude Journal
Get a notebook and place it by the bedstead to write down three things you are grateful for each day. Kids are most grateful for people in their lives, like parents, teachers, and friends. They are also thankful for simple pleasures like toys, and even necessities, like food and diapers.
Donate to Those In Need
Giving creates good vibes! Access to diapers was a huge pandemic problem that has persisted for many. Those who can’t afford diapers find that hardship more stressful than food or housing insecurity.
Last year, we donated $5,370, equal to 420 packs – that’s 12,600 diapers to those in need, so we are doing it again. We created our second annual Thanksgiving Diaper Drive to benefit the Homeless Prenatal Program in San Francisco with our community partners, Earth Baby REDYPER, and Natural Resources. Like traditional diaper services, REDYPER™ Powered by EarthBaby delivers fresh new diapers and wipes to your doorstep without waste.
Have fun and help others! Bring a pack of diapers to donate at our IYK® Thanksgiving Family Event on Sunday, November 20, or drop a pack at Natural Resources through December 20.
