Clean Water Family Kindness Challenge {Giveaway}

Last week I shared with you all about my meeting with Jason Priestley, and how he’s helping P&G spread the word about the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund. To date, P&G water purification packets have purified more than 7 billion liters of water and provided more than 21 million days of clean water! The goal is to reach 25 million days before the end of March, and everybody can help! Even you! 

pg clean water

To help reach the goal by March 19th, all you have to do is simply buy your favourite P&G products such as Bounty, Tide, Pampers, Cascade, Swiffer, Always, Duracell, Crest etc at Walmart Canada either instore or online (free shipping!) and P&G will donate 1 day of clean drinking water to the Children’s Safe Drinking Water Fund for each product purchased. Such an easy way to help those in need!

There are so many ways we can help, give and share with people in need, whether they’re close to home, or far away. This March, we’re promoting social awareness and a culture of kindness by encouraging you to participate in the Clean Water Family Kindness Challenge!

Living in a small town, I love being able to help people right in my own community and nearby towns. We make regular contributions to the local food bank, clothing drive and library throughout the year, and during the holidays, we get to make our favourite donation of all – the annual toy drive! Just knowing those toys are going to make some little child’s Christmas special, is enough to put a smile on all of our faces! Sometimes it can be hard for the boys to understand why we are giving brand new toys away, but it’s so important for them to learn the importance of helping when you can, and sharing when you are able. I’m always proud of them when I know they would like to keep the toys, but put the bag in the donation box to help another child feel happy and special instead! 

Share with me your tips for fostering the spirit of kindness in your little ones! Leave me a comment, letting me know your favourite ways to give back and you’ll be entered to win a fabulous P&G prize pack full of household essentials!

  19. Jeannie says:

    We purge 4 times a year and we make sure the kids are involved. We go through their toys and they decide what toys to donate. It use to be a struggle for them to give anything up, but now they get that not all kids are as lucky as them.
