Energizer Light Up a Life Champions for Kids, #EnergizerCFK, #CBias #ChampionsForKids

About a week ago I shared with you that I was participating in a simple service project for Champions for Kids.  This is my second simple service project, and this one focuses on keeping kids safe in the wintertime.  The goal of the project was to create a winter care kit for a child in need and to donate it.  I am again donating mine to Hand in Hand, which is a local organization that helps people in many ways.  They have a food pantry, a clothing closet and also offer prayer sessions for anyone that may need it.

I went shopping at my local Wal Mart for the items for my kit.  I had made a small list of items that I was sure that I wanted to include.  The rest of the stuff I was just going to figure out while browsing.  The things that were on my list included

  • Bottled Water
  • Flashlight
  • Rechargeable batteries
  • Hats
There were a lot of winter items that were on sale already which was great for me!  There was a large display with hats on in right as I walked in.
These cute colorful hats were only $.64, so I grabbed three of them.  You really can't beat a price like that. I didn't see any kids gloves though, so I kept on going.
Every child loves getting new toothbrushes, so I picked up two of these sets of two.  Great price, less than a dollar for two brushes, plus they are fun and colorful.  If a family is in need, they might be struggling to pay their bills or provide food for their family so simple care items may not be the number one thing on their list.

I knew I wanted to include some flashlights in the kit, but the only ones my Wal Mart had were ones that already came with batteries.  I grabbed two but I knew I would have to get some rechargeable batteries to go with them.
I grabbed these Energizer rechargeable batteries but there was one more thing missing....

A charger of course!  This one was great, it just plugs into the wall and it came with some more batteries so you can interchange them and always have ready batteries near by.

I had to pick up something fun as well.  Some simple coloring books and crayons are great for any kid, at any age.  There were so many things that would be great to include in a winter survival kit.  I kept on browsing and adding things.  I added things like chapstick, hand sanitizer, and cough drops.  I was thinking about what kinds of things help me make it through the winter.

I knew that what every family needs to make it through cold weather is some fever reducer and some nice warm socks!  The socks were on sale too, woo-hoo!  I of course, got some water, granola bars and gloves, if you want to see my entire shop you can visit my Google + album by clicking here

After I got home we put every thing into a nice blue gift bag that the kids decorated with snowflakes, and its all ready to go get donated!

Here is the finished product, had to re-pack it twice because I kept forgetting to include some items lol.  Finally got everything to fit and ready to go!
