"Our family tries to stay pretty busy in our community! My husband and I try to be good examples of service to our kids. I spend between 10-15 hours a week at their school helping in their classrooms or wherever in the school needs help. I find it very rewarding to help kids who otherwise don't get much help! We also put together hygiene kits to send to Haiti and donated them to the school. Over the winter my daughters and I made cloth dolls and doll clothes for a lady who goes to an orphanage in Africa every year. My kids were so excited to be helping out other little girls just like them! We give money to our church, which them provides food and clothes to local people in need. My youngest daughter is 4 and loves to go to the nursing home and help. We have gone with our church a couple times and I played piano for them to sing to. My daughter would go sit on their laps and always came home excited about meeting a new "grandma". I want my kids to learn to find joy in helping others. I am so excited that American Girl is creating an opportunity for girls to help out!"

I honestly can say that I have been very humbled by so many of these girls stories! These girls are doing amazing things!! I am so motivated to keep doing more in my community and wherever else we find opportunities to help. Thanks again to American Girl for finding such a fun way to spotlight these girls and their families and give them an opportunity to help out.
