"Every day there is something YOU can do to make the world around you a little bit better. Find that thing, however tiny, everyday." --Amy Davis Roth

Honest and fair projectsEdit
Friendly and helpful projectsEdit
Considerate and caring projectsEdit
- Make pet toys and/or collect items for a local animal shelter. We took old rags, sheets, etc. that were beyond even donating for clothing drives, cut them up into strips, and the girls braided them for cat and dog toys. We've also take socks, stuffed them with polyfil and catnip or old tennis balls, and tied them up for toys.
- Collect Comfort Cases for kids in foster care. Collect small suitcases, duffel Bags or backpacks with PJs, stuffed animals, coloring books and crayons, personal hygiene, and other items.
Courageous and strong projectsEdit
Responsible for what I say and do projectsEdit
Respect myself and others projectsEdit
Use resources wisely projectsEdit
- Local park and creek clean up projects are obvious ideas for environmental-related projects. Many of these may be organized by local environmental or community groups, especially around Earth Day every year.
Make the world a better place projectsEdit
- Hold a food or clothing drive to collect food or clothing items for a local food bank or homeless shelter. We've had Daisies do this very enthusiastically. They first visited a local food bank to see what it was all about and what they needed. The food bank had a large scale, which the girls all hopped on to weigh themselves. We used their total weight as our goal (~800 lbs) for how much we want to collect that year. The girls collected during school events, asking everyone who attended to bring in canned good and other non-perishable food items and personal hygiene supplies).
