1. Become a Giving Hearts Day ambassador.
Parents and teachers, talk to your children, classroom and fellow parents about what Giving Hearts Day is and why giving is important. Encourage them to start a Giving Hearts Day giving tradition this year (we can provide templates and messaging for you). If that’s not something you are comfortable with, consider volunteering to “turn your school red” on February 13th.
2. Encourage students in giving activities.
Teachers, help create the next generation of givers by having your classroom participate in a service challenge or random acts of kindness. You can also host a session for your students on creating a culture of giving in your classroom and community (again, the Giving Hearts Day team can provide ideas and materials).
3. Have your classroom experience the joy of giving first hand.
Teachers, consider having a business or parents sponsor Giving Hearts Day gift cards for your whole class. You have the option for each student to receive a gift card or for the class to make a donation together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Giving Hearts Day team for help finding a business partner.
