July is a month every teacher deserves to celebrate with great enthusiasm! Yes, it’s summer vacation for most teachers, and that’s an awesome reason to celebrate. But here’s another first-rate reason for every teacher to celebrate: July is National Make a Difference to Children Month. I’d like you to stop in your tracks right now and consider the number of children you have positively impacted through your teaching, your family, and your community. It’s pretty darn amazing, isn’t it? I thank you (and applaud you!) for making a difference in so many young lives—and so does every member of The Mailbox family!
The goal of National Make a Difference to Children Month is to encourage everyone to find ways to make a positive difference in the lives of children. It’s not difficult, really. When I think of the adults who have made a positive difference in my life, I remember those who spent quality time with me. My Uncle Denny tops my list. He taught me how to clean a fish, play solitaire, and sloooowly back away from a moose. He entertained my endless “What if?” questions and gave me the nickname Knute. My joyful childhood memories inspire me to make a difference in the lives of other children.
So what about you? How did someone make a difference in your childhood? Share a joyful childhood memory right here at the blog before midnight EDT July 31, 2014, and you’ll be entered in our Make a Difference to Children Giveaway. Two winners will be announced August 1. Each winner receives a free book from The Mailbox!
Eager to hear from you!
Congratulations to Peg and Mary, the winners of our Make a Difference to Children Giveaway!
