May is:
National Military Appreciation Month
National Military Appreciation Month is celebrated every May and is a declaration that encourages US citizens to say thank you. Thank you to the men and women who serve this country and to their families for sacrificing so much.

Hand written notes of 'gratitude' is a great way to say thank you! A great activity for the kids... or for the whole family. Need ideas of what to write? Click below:
Summer Service Projects
Summer is just around the corner. Along with booking camps, day trips and BBQs, you might want to consider scheduling some summer service projects for the kids. Gather some of your child's friends around the kitchen table and host an afternoon of 'giving back'. Click the orange box for some service project ideas.
 Take Your Child to Work Day

Thursday April 26th was Take Your Child to Work Day at companies nationwide. A special thank you to US Bank and to Merck for allowing The Giving Tree to be a part of their special day! Click here for some pictures from the day: US Bank MERCK
