Disney is celebrating volunteerism with the “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” promotion.
We signed up for a Volunteer Opportunity in Hyannis, making Valentines goody bags for Senior Citizens.
Here’s Shawn and I cutting the tissue paper for the goody bags:
My big helper watching closely to see what needed to be done.
Malia and Shawn working on the bags…
Steve and Jared wrapping the tissues and soap.
Kasi helping Daddy
Malia hard at work…
Shawn and I working on the Hershey kisses cellophane roses (these were tricky)…
Malia helping Daddy get the job done.
Even though Malia and Kassia weren’t eligible for the ticket from this opportunity (too young), they still helped the entire time. They loved being a part of making a difference for someone. So, in spite of the fact that they won’t be rewarded with a Disney Park ticket…they received an intangible benefit that helps to make them better people. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Making a difference in the lives of others?! I’m proud that our family was able to help bring smiles to the faces of Seniors on Valentine’s Day 🙂
