What’s Your Goal To Be Greater?
Check out NBC Parent Toolkit’s Goal To Be Greater campaign this back-to-school season! You can watch a short video of me and my eight-year-old son discussing our goal. There are also goals from The Honorable Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Kate Snow of NBC News, Mary Ellen Daneels, a high school civics teacher and more. Take this opportunity to set your own goal for the school year.
How can you play a greater role in your community?
Simply by submitting your goal, you’ll be contributing since each goal counts as one dollar that will be matched by Pearson Education to be given to one charity (selected in the name of an individual who has submitted her goal). See the full rules at ParentToolkit.com/Rules.
Spread the word to increase the donation amount! The Parent Toolkit team has put together some promotional materials to make sharing the “Goal To Be Greater” campaign easy. Follow Parent Toolkit on Facebook and Twitter for real-time updates of the goals they are receiving and share them.
For this month’s #ToolkitTalk Twitter chat, join me and Civics educator Mary Ellen Daneels, to discuss what it means to raise civically-minded kids on Tuesday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. EST. You can join us by using the hashtag #ToolkitTalk.
