The Creative Princess: I took the #OdwallaCFK Challenge, you can too! #cbias

I took the #OdwallaCFK Challenge, you can too! #cbias

A few weeks ago, I told you about this months Simple Service Project with Odwalla and Champions for kids.  I got the word out that I would be collecting new/used items to be donated to the local Little League organization.
I learned along the way that most of the people in my town pass their equipment down to friends or family that need it.  While the response to my drive was small I was glad to learn this is a natural thing for most around here to do anyway.  It warms my heart to know of so many families being blessed by the generosity of others.  Getting a pair of soccer shoes may not seem like a big deal to you but to many that can't afford it or worry if they will be able to, it is a huge blessing.
Last week I set up a juice bar before children's church started.  The kids play hard before church starts and I knew they would love a special treat.  Most of them were a little hesitant to try the new juices, a lot of them had never heard of Odwalla.  There were a few that just did NOT like the juices but most LOVED them.  The hands down favorite was the SuperFruit juice.  It was the nastiest looking juice of the bunch but, I agree, it was the best.
As I showed you in my post a few weeks ago and in my Google+ story, I purchased a football, some ping pong paddles and a few ping pong balls for the church.
  I took the items with me last night.  The kids were SO excited about the football!  I LOVED that!   
The paddles and ping pong balls were used as well.
 


Though my donation for this months Simple Service Project was small compared to others, it still meant the WORLD to the kids.  I absolutely love being able to help out in my community and encourage all of you to do what you can in yours.  There is still time to join in on this months project!  For more information, head over to the Champions for Kids website.  You can also follow them on Twitter and like them on Facebook to stay informed.
