This is a great time of year to put more focus on service activities you and your child(ren) can do. Here are a few I have come across, but there are plenty more out there. If you have a favorite please share the information with the rest of us.
Room to Read: donate to this nonprofit organization to help children around the world have access to books.

That's all for now, hope you have a great Thanksgiving!
