Donating Disney Stockings for Champions for Kids #DisneyCFK #CBias

This year in addition to the regular toy donations we give we were lucky enough to be apart of a great project for Champions for Kids. Each month Champions for Kids has a Simple Service Project that anyone can participate in. For the month of December it was to purchase Disney themed items and stuff a stocking with the toys to donate to kids in need. We were excited to be apart of this project since we are huge Disney fans in our home. I knew right away the type of Disney toys I wanted to donate.

We shopped at our local Walmart to purchase our Disney items to donate. We found lots of great items to buy and gathered many Holiday Gift Ideas. I took my son with me to shop so he can see how we buy gifts for other kids too. We have been buying toys for kids at Christmas time for many years. The last few years since our son was born we try to involve him too. You can read about our Holiday Giving Traditions here.

We were planning to donate our stocking to another little boy so we searched for Boy themed Disney items. There was stuff in the stocking and holiday section as well as the toy section. We searched for just the right stuff to put in our stocking. We also saw lots of yummy holiday treats to eat!

When we got home we made our stocking and wrapped the gifts that would not fit into out stocking. 

For donating our Disney Stocking we wanted to find a new charity this year to go along with the new program Champions For Kids we are working with. I searched locally and found a program that helps homeless families through housing, school and job training and other necessary services. The program is Roseville Home Start. We have driven by the charity at least a few times a week for the past 6 years and had no idea it was there. We were able to donate our stocking and gifts to the children at Home Start. I am happy to be able to give to families that need a little holiday cheer. We will be doing our best to donate all year long to Home Start.

Thank you to Roseville Home Start for allowing my family to visit and donate Disney toys to the children there. Thank you Champions for Kids for the great idea of the December Disney Stocking project. It felt awesome to donate toys to a child and made me grateful for all the blessings in my own life.

I love how you didn't stop with items that fit in the stocking and just wrapped the rest. That's generosity!
