The "Giving Lists"
This is where we celebrate the kids, groups, schools, and others out there making the world a better place, one good deed or project at a time. It's pretty easy to make our list - just do something for someone else (or for the planet or for animals) and share it with us! We want to see just how big this list can get. So go ahead, do some good and send us an email. We'll get your name and city on the list and maybe we'll even do a special spotlight story on your amazing work. And if you have a picture of your greatness, we hope you'll share that with us too (cause who doesn't love a good picture)!

Project Giving Kids Presents Its First Create the Change Day Bay Area
Project Giving Kids is excited to announce its first Create The Change Day in the Bay Area on November 12 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. at the Mitchell Park Community Center in Palo Alto.
“Project Giving Kids is thrilled to offer an afternoon of hands-on service to kids and families in the South Bay and Peninsula region,” says Molly Yuska, PGK Founder. “Create the Change Day is the perfect way to introduce young children to the joy of service to others and to PGK. Many people often don't know about all the amazing nonprofits in their own backyards. As we approach the holiday season, we want to help change that and be sure Bay Area families are connected to the organizations that would love to benefit from their passion and involvement.”
This special event will bring together members of PGK’s nonprofit partner network and will provide over a dozen ways for participants to get involved and give back, all in one afternoon. Participating partners include: African Library Project, Best Buddies, Ecumenical Hunger Program, EAH Housing, Hidden Villa, My New Red Shoes, Peniinsula Humane Society, Project WeHOPE, Reading Partners, Soldiers' Angels, Sunday Friends, There With Care of the Bay Area. The day will also be full of music, snacks and fun for everyone.
