Adopt A Grandparent

This year, I participated in an Adopt A Grandparent event with my MK business. I gathered donations & then purchased some MK products to deliver to the residents of a local nursing home. The kids helped me deliver the gifts. With my fellow MK consultant, we were able to make 46 residents a little bit happier. They really enjoyed receiving the gifts, but they enjoyed seeing the children more.
Chandler woke up EXCITED to visit the nursing home. I love her sweet spirit!!

Cheney enjoyed wishing the residents a Merry Christmas!

Sometimes we have to be led by the children. None of the kids were reserved about visiting with the residents.

What a great group of kids!! They were so well behaved & enjoyed their visit. I was very proud of them!!

a little child will lead them....If only more children were given the opportunity to visit and give like this--It would be nice to continue the visits even when it is not a holiday! They learn by example. Thanks for leading the way.

I am so proud of you kids. I am sure the older people enjoyed you coming to visit them. Keep up the good work. These people get lonely so you keep on visiting the nursing homes.

You should be so very proud of them! This is what I love about children - innocence. They are full of it and we should follow their lead more often.

What a wonderful thing to teach your kids!!
