A Lesson in Giving

The September 2013 issue of Family Circle Magazine:  http://www.familycircle.com  had a wonderful article about a woman named DIANNE CALLISTER who awards grants to middle schools.  The purpose of the grants is to encourage service to others. the program – called Project Give – challenges middle school students to come up with projects to help the disadvantaged.  Since 2008, the non-profit has awarded $200,000.00 to 150 middle schools, where students have logged more than 20,000 hours giving back.

Schools apply for funding on the Project Give website: http://www.project-give.org

The only requirement is that kids themselves explore areas of need and look for ways to address those needs.  What better way is there to encourage a love of service to others.
