Hulafrog at Home
February 9, 2021
While many in-person volunteering opportunities are paused, we've got 8 ways kids of all ages can give back from home...and learn valuable lessons while helping their community and the world.
Feed Families. Spread Kindness. Strengthen Communities
Kids can cook for a great casue! Lasagna Love was started at the beginning of the pandemic when the founder was looking for a way to help moms in her community. She and her toddler started making and delivering meals to families in the neighborhood who were struggling. Lasagna Love has since grown into a national movement, with thousands of people all cooking and delivering meals to families in their communities. When you become part of Lasagna Love, you're joining a movement full of people who want to help spread kindness to their neighbors during a time of need.
Send Cards to Hospitalized Kids
Doctors provide the medicine and handmade cards provide hope, joy, and magic for kids in hospitals across the country. The Cards for Hospitalized Kids website has all the information needed to make cards such as what to write and where to send. Kids can use their creativity to uplift the spirits of another child today.
Make a Blanket For Local Children In Need
No sewing skills are required to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children in need through the gift of a new handmade blanket. With chapters in 50 states, blankets are collected locally and distributed to children in hospitals, shelters, social service agencies. Check out their website for local chapter information and to learn how to make a blanket!
Write a Letter to an Elder
Snails are gross, but snail mail? Awesome. Kids can write an anonymous, handwritten note to an elder. It only takes 5 minutes to put a smile on someone else’s face. Even the youngest kids can participate in making a small difference in someone's life.
Decorate Duffle Bags for Kids in Foster Care
1,200 kids enter foster care daily and are given a trash bag to move their belongings.You can help put an end to that in 2021 by sponsoring a Safer At Home Service Project. Decorate duffle bags for foster children complete with a teddy bear, hygiene kit, and blanket. Kids will love the opportunity to unleash their creativity while making a difference in their community.
Send a Letter to a Service Member
A Million Thanks collects letters and messages of appreciation and support for our military, past, and present. It's their goal to see that our military – active, reserve, and veterans – receive these messages, whether they are serving at home, abroad, or are recovering in hospitals. Check out their website for sample letters to provide kids with inspiration.
Collab with Scientists to Make a Difference
SciStarter is a collaboration between scientists and citizens (kids included!) who are curious and motivated to make a difference. Kids can collect data by taking photos of clouds or streams, document changes in nature using smartphone sensors, or play games to advance health & medical research. SciStarter provides a database of thousands of vetted, searchable projects and events on their website to make it easy finding the perfect project for your kids.
Help Make Shoes for Kids in Uganda
Sole Hope Shoe "Party Kits" are a chance for your family to be included in the shoemaking process (and there are no special sewing or cobbler skills required!) Recommended for grades 5 and up, kids will be touching and prepping the fabric that will be finished into shoes in Uganda and go on the feet of a Sole Hope patient.
