After more than a dozen years empowering parents to raise caring kids, Doing Good Together is seeing more compassion than ever in the lives of the families we reach. All over the country, we're hearing from families excited by the impact our resources are having. This week we offer a few simple ways you can help us celebrate!

I’ve been working with Doing Good Together for a long time, long enough to know how important it is to grow strong roots of kindness and couragebefore that first day of school. Habits of kindness will help forge new friendships. Regular volunteering gives kids a strong sense of empowerment, as they see themselves as helpers. This self-reliance translates to courage in the classroom, as well as on the playground.

Sharing compassion with others meets critical needs in our communities, even as it heals our spirits. With each act of service, our families can be a force for love and kindness, helping to heal our fractured country and connect meaningfully with those around us.
And along the way, our children will discover what it means to live an engaged and compassionate life.
By engaging kids in social action, we can help our justice-loving youngsters recognize and stand up against inequities. We can help build their empathy muscles, practice the skills needed for social justice, and work toward a more equal society. In this week's post, DGT offers a new, book list to fuel your social action!
Even when you're doing your best to keep things simple, family life can be full at best. Often it's downright frazzled and unruly. To help your family make room for kindness, Doing Good Together™ has created a unique Family Meeting Agenda designed to unfrazzle family life.
