My kids and I are making muffins to put in the teachers' lounge tomorrow for First Day of School.

If you are needing inspiration for giving, look no farther than the new school year.
- There are students who could use supplies.
- Teachers who need supplies and support.
- Bus drivers, custodians, cafeteria employees, and administrative assistants appreciate being remembered too. :)

Happy giving!

These eagles may have lost their nest, but they continue to fly high. You can too. :)
Check out my post on these eagles without a nest.

Eagles Without a Nest

One of the most impressive sights at the local creek is that of the bald eagles. For a few years now a pair of eagles have raised their family in a huge nest high above the creek bank. This spring …

Wow! What a great gift! Way to give!
I was able to help someone get their lost dog home. I am so overwhelmed in happiness that I am crying as it's very hot out here in the desert.

Hi 29Gifters,
The summer is almost gone. Kids, parents and teachers are all heading back to school. Here are a couple ideas to help get your give on.

- Many Salvation Armies across the country sponsor school supply drives to help local schools. Check with your local Salvation Army to see if they are hosting a drive and give. http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/

- Target, Walmart, and other retailers often put out donation barrels or set up areas for school supply donations. Purchase a few supplies and donate to these barrels. Your generosity could inspire others to join in your generosity.

- Schools, stores, and churches often post “Teacher Wish Lists” help fill a few items from a teacher’s wish list and help make a school great for a lot of kids.

- Police departments and fire stations across the country host “Fill the Bags” programs. With these programs school supplies are donated at the police station or fire station and are then delivered by uniformed members of each to local schools. Check with your local stations to see if this program is in your area and help build connections within your community through generosity. http://www.dcpartnership.org/2015/06/04/backpack-drive/ https://nextdoor.com/agency-post/tx/stafford/stafford-police-department/back-to-school-supply-drive-57717578/

- Make surprise supply basket and drop it off at a local school for the teacher workroom. These surprises hold more than just pencils, pens, glue, and tape; they hold hope for a great school year and support for hard working educators.


Happy giving,
Melanie A. Peters
