A Donation that Won’t Cost you a Cent

A Donation that Won’t Cost you a Cent

January’s theme here at MomColoredGlasses is renewal. And, I’m sure everyone has been working on getting their new year’s resolutions into action.  To me, a new hair-do is the perfect pick-me-up for a new year with new goals. I’ve actually been planning to donate my hair for quite awhile now. I have probably been growing it...

Buy a Razoo giving card…the gift that keeps giving!

“It’s the Hap-Happiest Season of all” [you could really insert any line of any Christmas song here…]… And while Christmas is happy, wonderful, warm, bright, and merry, it’s also one of the craziest times of the year. While I love almost everything about Christmas, each year I get hit with these...

ThanksGIVING. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

It’s no surprise that this month’s theme is giving. And truly, giving is something the Charitable sense “column” tries to focus on each month to help share ideas of ways to give back and hopefully give people that extra push to try doing something charitable, even something small. It’s the little things sometimes that...

Charitable Sense: The Power of a Simple Gift

I cannot believe I am going to write about this in October. Maybe it is the warmer fall of Virginia that makes this feel like I am jumping the gun a little bit. And I do enjoy the idea of celebrating one holiday at a time. But I promise you, talking about Christmas now, for this post, is SO worth it. Yes, yes, I can feel the eye rolls and groans...

Charitable Sense: Build a Foundation

Do you remember when Oprah had a primetime reality TV show called Oprah’s Big Give? The one where she had contestants travel around the country to do different charitable projects? And the winner would walk away with $1,000,000 to dole out to different charities, causes, and groups in need of funds. I think that part might have been a secret...

Buy One, Give One…with TOMS

I’ve been thinking about blogging about this company for some time, but I figured now is as good of time as any… especially since it’s August and everyone is geared up for back-to-school shopping. This month’s charitable post probably won’t knock you down with depth but you might feel a little bit better about a...

Charitable Sense: Teaching Charity…

This month I was thinking about how we can involve our kids in being charitable. The definition of charitable is, well, broad and could work in many instances. Charity (practice): the practice of benevolent giving or caring. Key word being “practice.” I quickly started to brainstorm ways that I could teach my girls (ages 3 and 1) about...

Charitable Sense: Sponsor a Child

Sponsoring a child is something that my family has talked about doing for some time. And for some reason it took us awhile to just do it (thank you, Nike). When I decided this was something my family and I were going to do. I got to work doing a little research and talking to the people I know who currently sponsor a child(ren). After a quick Google...

Craft Hope…..the numbers are in!

We wrapped up our Craft Hope bracelet making challenge this week with a box of over 250 bracelets (264 to be exact) packed in tissue and sent off to be delivered in Russian orphanages later this summer.  It was really very cool to be standing in the post office with Georgia on Monday morning putting the box together.  I had a couple people ask me...
