The holiday season is upon us. During this time of year it is very important to me to teach my children that this season is about giving back as opposed to just receiving. I like to get us involved in a variety of charity and service projects.
There are so many to choose from.
This year I am planning on getting involved in a mentorship prom as well as volunteering at a local soup kitchen through my church. The soup kitchen is a project that my church got involved in a while back and it has become so popular that we have started volunteering on a regular basis.
One of the things that we love being able to do is to bring giveaway gifts when we volunteer. This may mean mugs filled with candy, hats and gloves, or other small items. Since it is the holiday season, I thought that a great giveaway product would be something for the kids that were being served.
Many of these kids won’t know what it is like to receive Christmas gifts. Often their families are struggling just to pay for food and utilities. This is why I made up some cute gift baskets for the kids.
I wanted to mix some essentials as well as some treats that kids will love. The best part is that these baskets can be made for under $15 (sometimes less) each. And I was able to get everything I needed at Walmart.
I picked up some essentials such as socks and toothbrushes for the kids, but I also found some other fun things such as small toys and candy. I then tucked everything into a small basket or caddy and I had a beautiful giveaway that I know the kids will appreciate. Plus, I had my kids help me out when it comes to picking, so I know that it is stuff that kids will love!
Putting together these gift baskets takes a lot of work and dedication. You have to sort the products and then package them into the baskets. This doesn’t even take into account the time that I am actually working at the soup kitchen as well. By the time I come home, I am exhausted!
Thankfully there is the new b+b® OTC ibuprofen. It is an effective pain reliever and fever reducer, bit also contains no gluten ingredients, no aspirin, and no caffeine. Plus, the on-the-go packaging is child-resistant and rounded edges to prevent cuts. (Always use as directed.)
b+b OTC is also passionate about giving back. When you buy one of their products they also give one to a person in need. In fact, through b+b’s partnership with Americares it has donated medicines to a network of over 1,000 free health clinics and rural health centers serving 5 million patients.
Since I already have a passion for giving back, I love knowing that I am helping those effected by homelessness, extreme poverty, and natural disasters. Now, when I am healing my aches and pains after working at the soup kitchen I can continue giving back!
You can purchase b+b OTC ibuprofen in the 24 or 50 count in the pain reliever aisle of your local Walmart. What is also great is when you purchase b+b OTC ibuprofen you can save $1.00 with the purchase of any count using the Ibotta app. In addition, there are other b+b OTC offers on Ibotta.
