Inspire your Children This Holiday Season with Help from the BGCA #GreatFutures #MC

"I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys and Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank-you for participating."”

December is officially here and most of us a caught up in that holiday spiral. I know my head is already spinning and I feel like I am drowning between finding those perfect gifts and meeting deadlines. But if there were one time of year to really reflect on the spirit of giving and the good that can still be found all around us. This is it! 

he Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Give the Gift of Great Futures


This season Boys & Girls Clubs of America inspires us and invites us to reflect on the true meaning of giving with their 3rd annual “Give the Gift of Great Futures” website. Here you can vote in the Kids Give Back contest, showcasing BGCA kids giving back in their communities throughout the year and even create holiday gift tags with the gift tag generator.

As easy as it is for me to get caught up in the season it’s even easier for my kids. I like them to step away from their typical holiday gift requests and scouring the web for the hottest toys, and reflect themselves on the reason for the season and how giving can be even more rewarding than receiving. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Give the Gift of Great Futures website also has a great section to learn tips that will help you inspire your children to give back in your community. The tips are simple and easy ways to help your child understand; reading books with a giving theme and donating clothes etc. 

The Boys & Girls Club is such an amazing organization, which inspires year round. I hope you'll take a moment and be inspired by their Give the Gift of Great Futures website this holiday season.
