This wonderful story of teens who give back comes to us from our DGT™ Volunteer Coordinator Natalie in New York City!
We hosted a Sweet 16 "Party with Purpose" for my daughter Emi yesterday, and a bunch of big-hearted teens put together "welcome kits" for newborns – all to be donated to GOOD+ Foundation. Each backpack contained newborn diapers, wipes, a bib, a bottle and other essentials so that families in need can welcome a new baby with joy and dignity. It's so easy to focus a birthday or other celebration around doing good for others – it's truly a win-win. Thanks to GOOD+ Foundation for the inspiration!
DGT's Big-Hearted Families™ program has similar party ideas on this page http://www.doinggoodtogether.org/bhf/birthday-giving-project, along with a downloadable ebook of 12 themed children's parties that give back.
