Assets in Action: This is a good week to focus on caring

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This seems like a good week to focus on the Search Institute Developmental Asset No. 26, Caring. This Asset highlights when a young person values helping others.

It is equally important for the youth in our lives to see the adults in their lives helping others too. So, I would like to draw your attention to a fun campaign that allows us to do all sorts of good.

Ellen DeGeneres has teamed up with Cheerios for, “Acts of good!”

So, you can start out by heading to your local Smith’s store to purchase a box of Cheerios. The first do-good is that you have shopped locally, helped to employ someone and helped the bottom line of the community by keeping money here.

If you have selected an Inspiring Donations recipient, you will help a local non-profit raise funds, simply by shopping at Smith’s and not costing you any extra.

While Champions of Youth Ambitions is one of those organizations, that seems selfish, so I will tell you that you can also benefit the Friends of the Senior Center, the Family Strengths Network, the Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation, any local school and more.
