Day 8: Puppies, Penguins, People & More

After lots of searching and deliberating, the girls have compiled the list of ten non-profit organizations that will benefit from Project Toteschooling. It was fun to see what they deemed important. No surprise animals were in the mix. But I also loved seeing that they are concerned for other kids less fortunate than them. One more step forward in battling entitlement in our household!

We will take our Thirty-One earnings each month and divide it equally between a donation to a non-profit and a contribution toward a family "something" (yet to be determined).

Here's the list of the winning NPO's:

Supporting numerous Veterans and their families by providing a wide variety of housing alternatices, as well as job search preparedness and placement assistance.

October: Bend Spay and Neuter Project 
Providing affordable, preventive veterinary care and a food bank for cats and dogs at risk.

November: Warm Up America! 
Committed to motivating, training, and coordinating volunteers nationwide to knit and crochet afghans and clothing for people in need. 

December: The Penguin Foundation   was established to protect and preserve one of Australia's most important natural assets - the little penguin

January: Kids in the Game
Eliminating barriers and making it affordable for every child to play sports!

February: Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year to homeless children 12 and under who need our childhood essentials to have a concrete and predictable source of security and an increased exposure to high-quality literacy materials during their time of upheaval.

March: Afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan.

April: Pencils for Kids By providing classroom supplies, programs, libraries and schools to communities in need, Pencils for Kids works to create a world in which all children have the opportunity for an education.

May: ANIKE Foundation is to promote educational development in Africa by providing educational resources from developed nations to needy institutions in Africa.

June: Hope 4 Women  has been bringing dignity to women around the world since 2006.
