header-image-fittedThere are so many causes, large and small, around the United States and Canada that make a huge impact in the communities that they help.  Many of them need not only volunteers to help them but also financial support to help them do more.  State Farm Neighborhood Assist program put out the call to communities across the United States and Canada to help create a positive impact in their communities.  4,000 causes were submitted as part of this year’s State Farm Neighborhood Assist.  The top 200 causes have been selected by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board and they need your “assist” to help vote them into the top 40.  These top 40 causes will each earn a $25,000 grant to help their communities!

Giving back to the community is so important to my family.  There are so many ways to help and I really try to instill this in my girls.  I volunteer at their school a lot both in their classrooms and all around the school with the PTO.  It is important to me for my girls to see that their school and the local community are important to me.  We also participate in fundraisers to donate food and toys for those in the community that need help.  I have taught my daughters that it is better to give than to receive.  That is a hard concept for small children but when I see my girls pick things out in the store to buy with their own money to give to children who have nothing I know they are on the right track.  Last year I had the privilege of being able to donate 40 pairs of brand new pajamas to a local women’s shelter.  What made the experience even better was overhearing my daughter tell her friend about how she was so proud of her mother.  

If your community was eligible in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist voting, what would you like to see the donations fund?  I would love more money to help feed the hungry families in my community.  So many children only get to eat the school provided breakfasts and lunches because their families don’t have enough money for nutritious dinners.  No child, or person for that matter, should go hungry so that is where I’d love to see donations go to in my community.

Please make sure to vote daily from now until May 16th!
Here are a few of the winners from last year.  Check out what amazing things these causes are doing in their communities:

Disclosure- I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CWIST.  I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

 I was looking for a way to encourage my children to give to other children in need and I came across CWIST.  CWIST means kids’ challenges with a twist.  It is an interactive library of educations, community service and outdoor challenges that help kids make the connection between the things they want and what it takes to get them.  I really wanted to reinforce to my children that in order to receive what you want in life, you need to work for it to earn it.  With CWIST children choose what wish or reward they want and parents assign a CWIST for the child to complete to earn their reward.  This holiday season CWIST also has a Kids CWIST For Kids program which is what hooked me on CWIST.  Kids can do CWISTs and instead of earning wishes and rewards for themselves, they are earn wishes for children in need.  CWIST is donating up to $2,000 worth of toys and wishes for children in need.

 CWIST wishes
With the Kids CWIST For Kids program my girls were able to look through all the children’s wishes and choose which one they wanted to grant by doing a CWIST.  They were able to choose a boy or a girl, the age of the child, etc. so it made it even more meaningful and easier for them to relate to working hard on a CWIST to earn for a child like them.  My younger daughter chose a girl her own age who wanted a doll.  She completed a CWIST about making homemade butter and when her CWIST was completed, CWIST donated the doll we choose to the girl we selected.  My girls and I gave to other people in need this holiday season, too, but the CWIST program was the most fun.  There is still time to get your kids involved in the Kids CWIST For Kids program and earn toys to donate to kids in need.  Get more info on the Kids CWIST For Kids program.


We will be using CWIST throughout the year when my girls want to earn rewards.  They don’t have to be rewards that cost money either.  We have plenty of toys and games in our house so my girls will be earning things like books, an outing to the movies, alone time with Mommy or Daddy, etc.  They can choose anything as a CWIST reward.  The CWIST platform is easy use.  Add your children and assign CWISTs and wishes.  When your kids log on they will see the CWISTs they needs to work on.  There are several different categories of CWISTs to choose from such as creating, family, community, sports, physical activity, and more.  Each CWIST give the directions, supplies needed (if there are any), and has questions for the child to complete.  Once they complete the CWIST and the questions, when the parent logs in they will see that the CWIST was completed and they can grant the wish.  Some current CWISTs including learning about setting a table, learning about trees, and even making a snowglobe.  You can choose from CWIST that are on the list or make your own CWIST.
