Champions for Kids

For me, it will always be all about the children. I’m interested in learning more about any organization or event that benefits children across the world or in local communities. That is why I’m happy to share this information with you–Champions for Kids.

Champions for Kids works to mobilize millions of people (= YOU!) to improve the lives of children across America and beyond. Their goal? To mobilize 20 million by 2020…. let’s help!!! YOU can help change the life of millions of kids, for generations to come.

Did you know:

Nearly 17 million children in the United States struggle with hunger.

Every year an estimated 25,000 young people “age out” of foster care. Who is there to support them?

15.5 million (or about 20.7%) of children in the United States live in poverty.

Teachers report one out of four children do not have access to basic eye and dental care.

GET INVOLVED! Make a difference. Learn about the Champions for Kids Simple Service Project: Energizer Light Up a Life. The simple idea? Put together a care kit for local kids! Keeping children safe is always important, especially in the winter months when it gets cold out and kids have greater basic needs.

70% of power outages in the U.S. are weather related. Over 9 million children suffer from non-fatal injuries each year, and accidents are the leading cause of death for children. Dangerous weather events cause hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries every year. The Center of Disease Control recommends having a kit ready in preparation for any emergency that may arise.

What can you include in your kit? A flashlight, batteries, water, food, first aid supplies, personal hygiene items, bandaids, tissues… maybe a fun item or two to remind kids to just be kids!

Next week I’ll be joining the cause. I’ll be one of millions. I’m putting together a kit and donating it to a local organization that helps children–a school, shelter, or religious organization, for example.

I’m excited to go pick out items for my Care Kit and make the day of a local organization! Will you get involved? Next time you’re going to the grocery store, pick up some extra items. Take your own children along when you go to donate to show them how important it is to help others–pay it forward! Gather your family, friends, co-workers… get them involved, too! After your participation, simply report back to Champions for Kids.

Let’s be one of millions, let’s make a difference–one day at a time, one person at a time. It all adds up. Find Champions4Kids on twitter and facebook and find Energizer on twitter and facebook!

ADERHOLT STATEMENT ON ADMINISTRATION’S APPROVAL OF NATIONWIDE CHRISTMAS TREE TAX USDA APPROVAL OF CHRISTMAS TREE TAX REVEALS CONCERN ABOUT THE ADMINISTRATION’S CONTINUED TAX-AND-SPEND POLICIES.

States News Service November 9, 2011 WASHINGTON, D.C. — The following information was released by the office of Alabama Rep. Robert Aderholt:

Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04), today released the following statement in wake of the Administration’s approval of a new 15 cent on all Christmas trees, that is slated to pay for a nationwide, government sponsored ad campaign to promote the benefits of live Christmas trees: go to website christmas tree tax

“The federal government in the midst of the worst budgetary situation in recent history and while Congress looks to make $1.2 trillion in critical spending cuts and implement policies promoting private-sector job growth, the Administration’s new Christmas tree tax and ad campaign is clear evidence of misaligned and misguided priorities in Washington,” said Aderholt.

“As the House continues to fight for additional spending cuts and free-market solutions, the Administration is once again challenging American liberty and now defaming the real meaning and spirit of Christmas. The size and role of government has already grown to epic proportions over recent years and the Administration’s use of the holidays to promote their goals of increased government intervention and a tax-and-spend agenda is simply unacceptable,” concluded Aderholt. website christmas tree tax

Aderholt currently serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Homeland Security for the powerful House Appropriations Committee, is a member of the Committee’s Commerce, Justice and Science; and Agriculture Subcommittees, and also serves on the Helsinki Commission.
