“6th year! 6 years ago I was watching the news with my littles when a segment about a local Women and Children’s shelter came on. My littles and I had just been talking about Halloween costumes. I got the idea to get enough costumes so all the kids at that shelter would have a Halloween costume that halloween. Since that year I have been collecting costumes for the shelter. This year I brought in 271 costumes and 250 bags of candy for those kids. It is a promise that I made 6 years ago and I will continue to do annually, because I said I would.”
Because I said I would helps families have an important conversation about why keeping promises is important. Our promise cards help introduce the idea of accountability in a positive way that children understand. Parents and teachers around the world use our YouTube videos and TED Talks as a character education resource at no cost.
U.S. Hospitals create 5.9M lbs of trash per year
A lot of that waste is unused medical supplies. Perfectly sanitary. Usable. Lifesaving. These items end up in landfills.
Our local chapter in Cleveland, Ohio made a unified promise to help sort and pack recovered medical surplus for children and families in developing countries. Thank you to MedWish who helped us help others.
