Today is National #ShareYourCare Day. How to you Share Your Care?

Share Your Care Ambassador

Today is National #ShareYourCare Day is today. I am a #ShareYourCare Ambassador. What that means is that I promote the Care Bears and their message of caring. My son is a fan of the Care Bears. He loves them. I got a bunch of Care Bears Blind Bags at the most recent Blogger Bash. The kids enjoyed opening them together. However, I found out that my son is the fan and my daughter, not so much.

Eva does agree with the message of caring, though. That is something that she can get behind. She is also inspired my this year’s Share Your Care Ambassador, 13-year-old philanthropist, Jessica Carscadden, founded We Care Bears Project. Together we will talk about the Care-A-Lot Challenge.
