Bring Light to Life
Spreading light, cheer, and joy!
As we close out 2020, let's all do what we can to bring light to life. It's time to connect, make people smile, and spread calm and space in this noisy word.
Over the next eight weeks we'll help through a series of fun—and impactful—weekly challenges! From honoring our veterans and performing random acts of kindness to sponsoring tree lightings and sharing an Ollie the Otter coloring page, we've got lots of great things planned to help bring light to life in our communities.
Wednesday, November 11, was Veterans Day, our country's national holiday to honor American veterans.
Bring light to life by expressing your appreciation to our veterans! We encouraged you to:
- Write a note of thanks and share it with a veteran (or safely deliver it to your local Veterans Home, VFW, American Legion, or other veterans' organization). Enlist the help of your kids or other family members—get creative!
- Observe the Veterans Day Moment of Silence. On November 11 at 1:11 p.m. take two minutes to recognize and reflect on the service and sacrifice of all veterans—past and present.
Bring light to life by coloring the season with cheer!
- Get creative—participate in your own way! Send an original work of art to someone who needs extra cheer or donate art supplies to your local community center, YMCA, children's museum, or daycare.
- Check out our festive Ollie the Otter coloring page. Print it for the littles in your life just for fun, then help them share completed pages with us by Wednesday, December 2, for a chance to be featured in a local newspaper.
Bring light to life by practicing random acts of kindness!
Write a note to tell someone how they’ve positively impacted your life, make a care package for a friend or stranger in need, donate blood, congratulate a coworker for a job well done, or rake leaves/shovel snow for a neighbor.
