Kids Making a Difference

I completely forgot that I had another blog entry due today. However, on my way home from work tonight, I remebered an idea that I had a while ago. And when I sat down to my computer tonight and realized that I hadn't even thought about a blog entry, I thought this would be the perfect way to introduce my idea to the world (or at least to the two of you who read my blog).
I've been trying to think of more ways to make a difference in the world and a while ago, I thought it would be a good idea to create an organization that gets kids involved in doing good. I never gave it much thought. . . but, like I said, on my way home tonight I thought about it again. I had initially thought of creating a non-profit to do this, but really, why not just start a club. I have plenty of relatives and friends with kids who are old enough to volunteer.
So, I am officially announcing the start of my kids making a difference club (name has not yet been determined). If you have children or grandchildren who you think might want to join the club, you will likely be receiving an email from me within the next week or two. If you know of anyone who you think might be interested, feel free to email me or add a comment to this blog entry. I haven't quite figured out all of the logisitics. . .
I will be working out the details soon. In the meantime, feel free to email or comment to this blog with ideas or questions or suggestions about this idea. You will be hearing more about this soon!
Goodnight and Happy Birthday to my brothers!

How can we expect our children to know and experience the joy of giving unless we teach them that the greater pleasure in life lies in the art of giving rather than receiving.
