Call Me Crazy! Here’s how you can be: CrazyWithACause !

Call me crazy — it won’t be the first time someone has – and TRUST me, it won’t be the last.

That’s the reason for my CrazyWithACause™ Project.

Through the craziness of motherhood, we laugh, we cry, we share and grow.  We also GIVE BACK – thus, my CrazyWithACause began. One of my reasons for The Empowered Mom’s is sharing the journey, the laughs and ways to give back.  It’s one of my building blocks.  Through my CrazyWithACause™ Project, I passionately promote philanthropy and charitable causes. It’s my belief that by uplifting others, we create a better community, a better world.  I encourage you, as parents, to empower your kids by embracing new ways of making a difference, and giving back.  We know teaching our kids to give back comes in many ways – giving can be by DOING.

CrazyWithACause℠ is connected and active in several non-profit organizations. You’ll be learning more about them in the upcoming days, weeks and months. Some of them include:  our fantastic friends at Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities, also  The One Heart Project, our dear friends and founders of Dallas Uncorked and our belief and close ties with Minnie’s Food Pantry. We believe in all these causes; we support, volunteer and are active with them, more importantly, our children are as well.

Today, get to know Minnie’s Food Pantry, we are CRAZY about it!  And you’ll see our critters (our three little boys) – three little boys helping and giving to others.

Share with me how you teach your kids ways to share, give back and help others!  Share how you teach your kids. I’d love to hear about it!  And if you’d like to hear more about these organizations, please give me a shout.

I love being CrazyWithACause.  Get Crazy With Me.

    Hi Maria! We love supporting our troops! Weather we are in an airport and give each one a smile and a big Thank You or when our son is out selling popcorn through scouting (which includes the option to buy popcorn for the troops and their families), we always encourage him to give back to the people who protect us every day.
    We also support our school and charities the school gets involved with. By doing this, we open his eyes to other people in our community that have many different needs that we can help with.
    We also believe that charity begins in the home. We love to clean out his closet a couple of times a year and donate his clothes, toys, and books to our friends families that need it the most.
    I feel that these experiences will stick with him for the rest of his life and he will be able to pass these on to his kids!

      Thanks for sharing your ideas! We also support our troops with our boys – whenever we see them, they walk up to them and say, ‘Thank You for the service you do for our country’.
      I agree with you – charity begins in the home. We make our kids stronger, our families and our community.
      Please feel free to continue sharing ideas, upcoming causes and just fun stories with your kiddos – *and* things you do to live as The Empowered Mom! 🙂
