It’s a new year, one that is probably guaranteed to run by even faster than the last. Often at this time of year, we find ourselves resolving to do something better with the new year before us, this clean slate. Often these resolutions are focused on things that will make us healthier, happier, more fulfilled. And often these resolutions involve very inwardly focused attempts to achieve these things – get to the gym, manage stress, lose weight. However, one of the best known ways in which to achieve better health, a greater sense of fulfillment and more happiness is to serve others. This is true not only for adults but also for our children.
So, if a new year’s resolution is still on your list of to do’s this year, we encourage you to commit, the same way you would to your gym, the time and space to give back meaningfully as a family. And we at PGK would love to walk that journey with you. The sole purpose of creating our website and mobile app was to connect you to organizations and ideas that would make that experience easier. We hope you will use them. We hope you will tell us what you like and what we can do better. We hope you will check back often as we continue to bring on amazing new nonprofit partners who also want to be a part of your resolution and your giving journey as a family. And we hope you will tell us your stories, for it is in the sharing of these acts of kindness that their ripples continue to grow.

Our bet is that this is a resolution you will want to keep, and one that if continued well after January, will indeed leave not only you, but your entire family, happier and healthier by the end of 2018!
