Energizer Light Up A Life Campaign - #EnergizerCFK #CBias

Here in Southern California we have one major weather event that everyone should prepare for but frequently don't - and that is earthquakes!  After a major earthquake, the purchasing of supplies goes way up, but that's the opposite of the way it should be!  Instead we should be stocking up on batteries, flashlights, water, first aid supplies, etc. before an earthquake occurs.  (In the area that I live in most of the power lines and other critical utilities are underground so we aren't as susceptible to rain storms affecting power).

I feel so fortunate to be able to be involved in the Energizer Light Up a Life Campaign to put together an emergency kit for the local Boys and Girls Club.  The Boys and Girls Club is a fantastic organization that works to keep kids from being latch key kids and to enable kids to have a safe place to go after (and before!) school that will assist in kids growing up happy and healthy.  I can't think of a more important place to send an emergency kit!

I headed down to my local Walmart (you can follow along on my journey on Google+ here.) to load up on Energizer batteries, Energizer flashlights, first aid supplies, non-perishable snacks and water bottles to include in the kit.

The kids helped me pack up the kit and even created a sign for the side to make it easily identifiable in an emergency.

The Boys and Girls Club was so appreciative for the donation with copious thank you's in the midst of kids running around using the facility!  Right then I knew that I wanted to be involved in more campaigns like this.  Our life has been so hectic and busy that I had just let my volunteering and donating become less frequent as it once had.  Seeing my boys be proud to bring this emergency kit to a deserving organization showed me they are ready to be more involved in similar activities also.

Would you like to get involved in the Light Up a Life Campaign?  Go here for more information and be sure to report back to the website that you participated!  The goal is to inspire 20 million people to Light Up a Life by 2020.  Like the Facebook page here, follow the campaign on Twitter here.  Every bit helps!

Great kit and we love donating to the boys and girls club. I'm sure that will come in handy!
