I love this time of year – the season of giving and no stranger to this is Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA).  BGCA and club Alumna, Lucille O’Neal (basketball superstar Shaquilled O’Neal’s Mom) have teamed up to remind us what it truly means to give.  Over the years, the focus of the holidays has shifted from appreciating great family time together to rushing about getting the best deals on gifts.  The true spirit of the holidays, the act of giving, often gets lost.  Not giving the hottest toys or the most updated gadget, but the act of giving your time and talents to help those in need.

2012 marks the 2nd Annual Give the Gift of a Great Future Holiday Campaign.  BGCA has created the Give the Gift of a Great Future website with a focus on creative and easy activities to teach the value of giving back.  No age proves too young for children to start learning the importance of giving back, especially during the holiday season.  This Give the Gift of a Great Future website features resources to help us parents with ideas on how to give back with our children, an interactive Giving Game and a Kids Give Back contest photo gallery where the public can vote on their favorite picture of BGCA kids serving their communities.

I have friends who have children who were positively impacted by the Boys & Girls Club of America.  These families have shared with me about how Boys and Girls Club of America have touched their lives and been a major blessing to them.  I also participated in a Twitter Party recently where some of the participants talked about how the Boys & Girls Club of America changed their lives.  I am so glad that we have such an amazing program available to the children in our lives.  I encourage you to check it out and see how you can help or how it can help the children in your life.

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.
