Happy Monday! We just got back from the mountains yesterday and had so much fun playing in the snow and unplugging for a couple days. We took Tayler sledding for the first time, and we thought she would be thrilled but she wasn't 100% sure about it. Poor thing also wasn't feeling very well so I'm sure that didn't help. But despite her feeling a little under the weather, we had such a great time! It got me thinking about how grateful I am that we can give her the opportunity to experience new things and adventures, but unfortunately, not every child is so lucky.

That being said, I'm sharing an AWESOME way that you can give back to disadvantaged youth in our community and it's called Give it up for foster kids. There are currently thousands of kids in the child welfare system that still don't have homes {this breaks my heart}. Olive Crest is a foundation that works to find safe homes and support for foster kids here in Washington state. Since 1973 they have helped transform the lives of over 100,000 at-risk children. But they need our help to keep going - and here's where you come in! 

The GIUFK campaign is asking you to choose an item to give up in support for foster kids! This can be anything in your home that you were thinking of selling or donating anyway. And if you don't have anything of material to sell, you could also give away a service of some kind. All you have to do is download the Olive Crest version of Better Finds app and post an item you are willing to give up. Once you've posted, they are asking that you share it on Facebook and nominate a friend to encourage them to give something up in support of foster kids & families! The more we share, the more we can donate to an amazing cause to help kids in need!
