The Creative Princess: Odwalla Champions for Kids - April Simple Service Project

Odwalla Champions for Kids - April Simple Service Project

As most of you know I LOVE teaming up with Champions for Kids.  Each month they feature a new Simple Service Project.  During the month of April CFK will be teaming up with Odwalla to bring you 'Game Day Challenge'!  This theme is all about kids sports!  

Did you know: 
1 out of 3 children and teens in the US are overweight, which puts them at risk
of developing serious health problems, including diabetes, heart disease and asthma.

 Only 3.8 percent of elementary schools, 7.9 percent of middle schools and
2.1 percent of high schools provide daily physical exercise for their students.

Children who play sports have better eating habits and nutrient intake than those
who do not, and this combination of physical exercise and balanced diet contributes
to improved health and academic achievement. Odwalla believes in Nourishing The
Body Whole® so that children can have healthy nutrition and lead strong lives!

This week I went to my local Walmart and picked up a few items to be donated to my church.  I am donating the items to the Children's Ministry department.  We have about 40-60 kids each week, age 5-13, that attend our children's church.  Before church starts the kids are given free time, most of them play basketball, ping pong or just play outside.  It seems like the children's pastor is constantly buying new ping pong balls and paddles!

I decided to pick up a couple of extra ping pong paddles, ping pong balls and a new football.  I also got a small variety of Odwalla juices and smoothies.

I have never tried Odwalla juices but am looking forward to trying them!  I talked to the children's pastor earlier this week and she said we could set up a little juice bar for the kids in a few weeks!  YAY!

I am so excited to be a part of the #OdwallaCFK simple service project this month! In the next few days/weeks I will be collecting items to donate to the local little league.

Would you like to get involved as well? Here are some ways to help:

Gather your family, friends, and co-workers to participate in a Odwalla Game Day
Challenge by hosting a basketball, baseball, kickball, football, softball, or other kind of
ball game. Have each person bring new or gently used sporting equipment!

Learn about the athletic needs of children in your community by inviting a teacher,
youth group leader, or coach to talk with a group of your family, friends, and co-workers.

Give the teacher/coach/youth group leader the sporting equipment to help children in
your community enjoy more active and healthier lives. 

You can see my entire path to purchase in my Google+ album.
