I Want Him to Care About His Home and The People Who Live Here
I want him to care about his home and the people who live here.
I want to raise my son to be kind, respectful, and to care about his home, the planet we live on and the people who live here, meaning everyone and anyone.
We live in a world where our televisions showcase violence and horrible acts of crime. More so often all the good and positive gets pushed to the side. We can only hope to get a glimpse of the good through online viewing. It’s a sad day when the negatives in life out weigh the positives. What ever happened to happy stories? Stories of folks doing good? What about the act of kindness?
I feel like this is something we don’t hear about often enough. Not here. Not today. Today is about the good stuff in life and how we can make things better. How one simple act of kindness can make a difference to someone.
We live in a world where there is beauty all around us. People treat our home like crap. They liter and leave their trash all over the place. In my opinion, this is not acceptable. This is something I have taught my son. He has asked me a few times why can’t people just pick up their trash? Why can’t they just put their trash in the trash can? And I wish I could have an answer for him but I ask myself these questions all the time!
People disrespect our home by throwing their trash all around, by not cleaning up after themselves, and by treating our creatures like they don’t belong here. This is stuff I want my son to know is wrong. I want him to care and to treat our world like it was his house. I want him to respect our home and the people who live here.
There is truly so much beauty around us. The saying “Stop to smell the roses” is something more people should do.
There are so many ways to give back to our community. So many different acts of kindness that would allow others to smile and make their day. Sometimes all it takes is something so small. But the thing is there are also bigger acts of kindness. I am always looking for more was to do Every day, care acts in my life. It can be something small like paying for someones coffee or maybe their lunch. However there are also some larger Every day, care acts that can be done. Like helping someone with their grocery bill or maybe help them fix something in their home. Whirlpool is a brand that has given back in a big way!
You can use the hashtag #EveryDayCare on social media to honor a caring act or a caring person in your life. Don’t forget to visit the Whirlpool Every day, care Project to learn more about how Every day, care acts can impact your life and community.
Since 1999 Whirlpool® brand has been teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to help bring affordable homes to families. Whirlpool has donated more then 168,000 appliances like ranges, dishwashers and refrigerators to Habitat for Humanity homes throughout the US and Canada. I don’t know about you, but I think that is pretty amazing.
The simple act of giving back by Whirlpool has impacted thousands of families around the world. Thousands! That is truly amazing! All these people are smiling because they have a home, a place to call their own and thanks to whirlpool, they have a place to hold their food and to cook their food. That is something truly special!
We can do something everyday to change someones life. A simple act of kindness can restore someones faith in humanity. You can always do something small but remember that there are ways to help with even bigger acts of kindness. You can always visit The Habitat for Humanity Volunteer page and if you can’t volunteer your time, they do take donations which is also a huge help. Be sure the visit these pages to see what they are all about. It’s totally worth it!
Jaiden and I love giving back. We are always going through his toys and clothes to donate them. This is one of our Every day, care acts. I plan to volunteer Jaiden and I in any way that we can help . I want my son to see the world for all its kindness and beauty not for the hatred and violence.
Teaching him that kindness can go a long way is very important to me.
I have never had the pleasure of volunteering for The Habitat for Humanity but I sure do plan to. I think this will be an important lesson for not just my son, but myself as well.
What are some of your Every day, cares acts? Have you have ever had the pleasure of volunteering for The Habitat for Humanity? If so, what are your thoughts? What are some ways you like to give back?
