Donating to the Austin Children’s Shelter with Energizer’s Light Up A Life Simple Service Project #EnergizerCFK #CBias #ChampionsForKids

by | Feb 22, 2012 | Giving Back

I am super excited to be a part of Energizer’s Light up a Life Simple Service Project for Champions for Kids… Mobilizing Millions! I have always been passionate about giving back to our community and charities! Especially when it comes to kids!! I use to work with at risk youth and foster kids and know first hand the hardships that they have faced! So I jumped at the chance to be a part of the millions…

 Did You Know?
• Over 9 million children suffer from non-fatal injuries each year, and accidents are the leading cause of death for children. Additionally, dangerous weather events cause hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries every year.
• 70% of power outages in the U.S. are weather related. Numerous power failures are caused by natural weather phenomena such as lightening, rain, snow, ice, wind, and even dust.
• The Center of Disease Control recommends having a kit ready in preparation for any emergency that may arise. They recommend the kit include food, water, flash light, extra batteries, medications, first aid kit, sanitation and personal hygiene items, copies of personal documents, and other necessities.
Ways YOU Can Help!
GATHER your friends, family, and co-workers to help children stay safe and be prepared by putting together Care Kits for kids! Include items like band-aids, hand wipes, tissues, flashlights, extra batteries, and bottled water.
LEARN about the safety and health needs of children in your community by asking a teacher, social worker, or other community representative to speak to your group.
GIVE the Care Kits to a school, religious organization, shelter, or other community organization that helps children in your community.
REPORT back to us at so that we can celebrate your participation! How many people participated in the Energizer Light Up A Life project and became Champions for Kids? We want to know that you were part our vision of mobilizing 20 Million people by 2020 to become Champions for Kids!
Here are Keeping Up With The Rheinlander’s we chose to donate to the Austin Children’s Shelter.  So I called to see what their immediate needs (ages, boys, girls, etc.) were and made a shopping list! Here in Austin, the Winter weather does not last long (if at all) and is not anywhere near as severe as up North, so the needs of the kids are warmer weather needs. At ACS they also have 5 cottages, so I will take that into consideration as I am shopping for them too. If you would like to donate your own Care Kit or a Cash gift, check out the ACS Wishlist it is updated regularly. You can also call their main number and ask for their specific needs 512.499.0090 Check back next week to see what we donate and a few pictures of my tour!
