I am so happy to share with you a new campaign from JOLLY TIME called Kernels of Kindness which recognizes people who bring joy and happiness to others by doing good in the community. Do you know anyone who fits that description?
The Kernels of Kindness campaign, celebrating 100 years of JOLLY TIME, will award 100 $1,000 grants to people and organizations around the country who bring joy and happiness to others by doing good in the community. Nominations can be made at jollytime.com/kernelsofkindness starting on May 15th. Judges will determine the 100 winners.
As soon as I heard about this campaign, I thought of Wanda Davis, Director of the non-profit organization Family Connection and Communities In Schools of Glascock County, Inc. which does great work in my community. I am so in awe by the many outreach programs offered through Family Connections which include everything from an after school program to a food bank, mentoring, clothing drive, toy drive, and so much more.
This organization reaches so many Georgia families providing much needed necessities. Wanda and her small staff do really great work, and I have caught Wanda more than once working after hours on her own time. I just know that a $1000 grant from JOLLY Time Kernels of Kindness program, would go a very long way in the hands of these capable and passionate ladies. I look forward to nominating them sometime this week.
This is a picture of me with Wanda, taken during the toy drive last Christmas. I am forever amazed by all the many things this small group of ladies is able to accomplish. They are very deserving of some grant money. Do you know someone who deserves a thank you for good deeds? I would love to hear about the person or organization you would nominate!
Be sure to make your nomination, and check out all the beautiful and inspiring stories shared on the JOLLY TIME website! It’s sure to bring a smile to your face.
One lucky person will win a $100 Amazon Gift Card and a JOLLY TIME Popcorn Prize Package valued at $50! Contest ends on June 15, 2014 at 11:59pm EST. Open to US.
I would nominate my mother who volunteers often to help others

I would nominate my mom. She is always helping everyone out.

I’d have to nominate my neighbor! She has 4 small boys of her own, but volunteers at school almost every day! She always seems to have a clean house and a full, home-cooked meal on the table. I don’t know how she does it all!

I’d nominate my co-worker Tammy. She’s the one who is always organizing our community outreach endeavors for our office, and is super passionate about getting everybody signed up and jazzed to attend.

I would nominate my mom because she does things every day that help out others.
