"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Tend Kids

The project:
Pick up someone else's kids and watch them for a few hours.

3 hours

Why bother?
Not sure if this counts as charitable when it resulted in my own kids having buddies over to play. But taking another mom's kids off her hands for a few hours while she gets some work done HAS to count. These are good kids, and our girls really enjoy their company. This may become a regular occurrence.

Worth it?
Absolutely! When it was time to head for home, I asked, "Who's comin' with me?" Four kids hollered from their various spots on the play structure, "I AM!" What energy! In the car, it was so fun to hear them all, and charging through a couple of errands on the way home it was fun to have a pack of kids with me.
