Giving Activities

  • Week of gratitude – In the days leading up to Giving Hearts Day, have each member of your family write something they’re grateful for. Then, on the day itself, give to charities that are working to provide those same things for others.
  • Spend, save, give jars – This one is for the kids. Have your little ones set aside some money each day/week/month in their piggy bank – some to spend, some to save, and some to give. Then, have them use the “give” funds to donate to their favorite charity on Giving Hearts Day.
  • Snowbank signs – Pick up some Giving Hearts day snowbank signs at Dakota Medical Foundation (and while you’re at it, turn your snowbanks red!)
  • Bingo – Download our free Giving Hearts Day bingo card, and host a fun family game night
  • Giving Gathering – Host a Giving Gathering, and tell friends and family about your favorite charity

Dr. Sue Mathison and her son, Grant, have been a part of Giving Hearts Day since the event began in 2008. Each year, they sit down and go through the giving profile of every participating charity, and Grant chooses which ones to give to. Last year, the Mathisons sponsored Grant’s entire classroom, providing each student with a $10 Giving Hearts Day gift card.
