Christmas in a time for giving and we use this as an opportunity to teach our kids about the giving that a lot of people don't think about and that is charitable giving. I want my girls to understand that the holiday season isn't about receiving gifts, but about being with the ones we love and thankful for what we have. That also includes educating them about the children in the world that don't have a lot and are suffering to get the basics or even an education. That is why I love the Donate a Photo app from Johnson & Johnson. For every photo shared through the free app, Johnson & Johnson donates $1 to one of its trusted non-profit partners. You get to choose the cause you'd like to help also.
This year I decided to donate some photos to the survivors of the Tennessee Wildfires. We often visit that area, and the devastation is all too real. North Georgia recently went through some terrible forest fires but nothing as scary as what East Tennessee faced. It was an easy choice for me to donate to them. I even used pictures that I had taken in the area. This is the photo I shared to the Donate a Photo app. It's from a cabin I stayed at in Gatlinburg. You can also track the progress for all the causes and photos added. You can even see photos others have shared
We love the Gatlinburg area. We took this picture last fall while visiting. Download the Johnson's and Johnson's Donate a Photo app to give to lots of great organizations. #IC #jnj #donateaphoto ad . . . #giving #themountainsarecalling #christmas #dogood #tennessee #tennesseefire #gatlinburg #pigeonforge
Another cause I love to give to is Save the Children, because they help children all over the world. They were there for the children after the Wildfires, and they are there for the refugees overseas. Save the Children has been a longstanding global partner of Johnson & Johnson. They have this amazing “Gifts of Joy” holiday catalog that lets you purchase tangible items for different aspects in Save the Children. I'm planning on sitting down with the girls and letting them decide what we should buy this year. I'm leaning towards a goat, but I want them to help me pick so I can teach them why this child needs it.
