Join World-Changing Kids this Saturday at the Alta Vista Branch of the Ottawa Public Library / Bibliothèque publique d’Ottawa for a Kindness Bag Making Workshop.

Workshop #1: 1:00 to 2:00
Workshop #2: 2:30 to 3:30

Cost: Free!

The main goal of this workshop is for participants to make a Kindness Bag out of an old t-shirt, fill it with a gently loved book and stuffed animal, a Kindness Card, and a hand-made beaded necklace, and then we will donate the whole package to the Heron Emergency Food Centre to be gifted to a child during Thanksgiving.

I am so excited for this workshop. It is filled with so much awesomeness.

Participants will actually, really create stuff that is going to go to another child in their community – they will draw a Kindness Card, they will make a beaded necklace and they will turn an old t-shirt into a re-usable tote bag. Kids love to actually, really create stuff. I did this workshop with kids at an after school program and they were super engaged and so proud of what they created.

The seamstresses who are volunteering with us are from the Ottawa Community Immigrant Services Organization (OCISO). We will get to meet some new friends who recently arrived in Ottawa. We will get to chat with them and hear their stories.

The Kindness Bags, filled with a gently loved stuffie and book, a Kindness Card and a beaded necklace, will be donated to the Heron Emergency Food Centre to be given out to children during Thanksgiving. We will discuss food insecurity and the need for Food Banks with participants during the workshop. The children will get to learn more about an important social justice issue.

We will get to spend an hour with our neighbours, doing something that will help out families in our community.

And I got to collaborate with the Alta Vista Branch of the Ottawa Public Library / Bibliothèque publique d’Ottawa for this.

It couldn’t get any better!
