GIVE Yourself A Challenge!

Due to the uncertainty of the coronavirus, many Americans may feel the effects of isolation, loneliness, and lack of resources. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way.

 

As a youth-focused organization, Courteous Kids believes that young people have the power to impact their community through small acts of service. And now, in the midst of a nationwide quarantine, we believe that service is more important than ever. This spring, Courteous Kids invites you to join us in new ways of serving the community through our GIVE challenge!

 

 

How You Can Enter

To enter our GIVE challenge, you must complete the following steps:

 

  1. Pick any project (it doesn’t have to be from our list) that benefits your community.

  2. Upload a short video of your service project to Youtube, showing your generosity and hard work! (You can learn more about the project guidelines here.)

  3. Have a parent or legal guardian fill out an online form, including a URL of your video as proof of your goodwill and kindred spirit.

  4. Sit tight until the end of May, when we will choose our top five candidates and let you vote on the winner of our GIVE challenge. Prizes include gift cards to support local businesses and a family pack of tickets to Werner Stadium for first place!

 

 

In each of our programs, Courteous Kids makes safety the number-one priority. Which is why we’ve designed new ways you can serve your community during this quarantine season— all without putting yourself at risk. 

 

Ways you can serve your community include…

 

  • Send a care package filled with goodies, drawings, and encouraging letters to a loved one.

  • Mail an encouraging letter to a nursing home resident.

  • Pick up litter in your neighborhood.

  • Donate and/or volunteer at your local food pantry.

  • With your parent’s help, contribute to a community garden.

 

…and many more!

Service in Quarantine

Hey there do-gooders! It’s easy to feel dry of ideas when trying to help the community— especially when under quarantine. Which is why we decided to help you bring goodwill towards others through acts of service— all while staying safe. Check out our project suggestions for simple and easy ideas!

 

  • Send a care package filled with goodies, drawings, and encouraging letters to a loved one or nursing home resident.

  • Sometimes, a simple letter goes a long way. Mail an encouraging letter to a nursing home resident filled with your favorite quotes, pictures, and drawings to lift their spirits!

  • In the midst of the COVID-19 quarantine, the families of your neighborhood could use the reassurance of a friendly smile. So grab some chalk and leave smiley faces, flowers, and encouraging messages on the sidewalks of your neighborhood.

  • Pick up litter in your neighborhood.

  • Donate and/or volunteer at your local food pantry.

  • With your parent’s help, contribute to a community garden.

  • With your parent’s help, offer to deliver groceries for those who are unable to leave their home.
