Check out this monthly Kindness Calendar for daily activities to support and connect with yourself and the people in your life.
The Hour of Code
The Hour of Code is celebrated December 5-11th, but you can participate year round! The site Code.org has tutorials for learning about coding on all kinds of devices plus paper activities as well. Mission School District has gathered together some great resources. Watch the videos and be inspired by the idea of creating your own program and the possibilities of computational thinking.
“Your Guide to Intelligent Giving”
So you want to make a charitable donation this Christmas but you’re not sure how much of your money will actually go towards the charity’s goal? Or perhaps you aren’t clear about the charity’s mission or the actual work they do? Perhaps you have some concerns with a particular charity after seeing something in the news?
Charity Navigator (a charity itself) is the place to obtain background on various charities. Enter the name to access quick infographics that show ratings and financial accountability. Perform side-by-side ratings of up to 5 charities at a time, view up to the past 3 years of financial records, peruse the Donor Advisory list, and determine which charity deserves your support this Christmas.
