Service Project: Chores For a Cause

Donating funds to a good cause is a great way to offer service in your local community. Research a few local charities and have each of your children choose a cause to do chores for. Then throughout the week, as your family cleans up toys, makes beds and dusts the book shelf, they can earn coins for that charity. At the end of the week or month, whatever time period you decide on, either take that money to the charity, or write a check on behalf of your kid's earnings and mail it in.
