Family Volunteer Day takes place on November 19th. It's held annually on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and now in its 26th year, is a day of service that demonstrates and celebrates the power of families who volunteer together, supporting their neighbors and neighborhoods. Family Volunteer Day is powered by generationOn, the youth division of Points of Light, the largest organization in the world dedicated to volunteer service, and sponsored by The Walt Disney Company. <~ Magical ain't it?
Any who, I decided to create upcycled piggy banks with Gabs to teach her how to help the environment and give to a cause that we care about, The Hearing Loss Association Of America. You might be wondering how a piggy bank helps save the environment... well, our environment has a limited amount of resources. For example, an estimated one third of the world’s total oil supply, which is used in the creation of products like gasoline, plastic, and even deodorant, has already been produced. The more we can reuse and repurpose things, the less resources we use, and that is better for the environment!
