It is with great pleasure that I announce the next Little Warrior event! The Little Warrior Organization will be partnering with the Supermom’s of Ascension (my mom’s group) to put together Easter Bags for the Hope Center of Waukesha.
It’ll be a two part deal:
First part: We will be collecting items starting now until March 21st for these bags. It’s items such as non-perishable snacks, shampoo, soap, deodorant, books, small toys, etc. There is a complete list here.
If you are out of town and would still like to participate, this is a great way. Take your child to the dollar store or Wal-Mart or Target and talk to them about people who don’t have homes. Have them try to come up with a list of what kinds of items they would need if they didn’t have a house to live in. The basics. Praise them for thinking of others and tell them how important it is. It’s the teaching part that really gets me motivated about this project.
Second part: We are inviting children of all ages to join us in making and filling the Easter Bags on March 24, 2012 at 1pm-5pm. Come for the whole four hours or come after your child’s afternoon nap. It’s going to be a great opportunity to show children that they can make a difference.
I’ve got all the details up on www.owenslittlewarriors.com (a link is in the black header of the blog too). Yes that’s right … the Little Warriors Website is officially launched as well!!! Pre-registration for the event on the 24th is appreciated so we have an estimated head count of how many will be joining us. But walk-ins are always welcome!!!
We made just under 300 ornaments in the first Little Warrior event … do you think we could make 500 Easter Bags?? It’s really all up to you!
