Light Up A Life Campaign for Kids #EnergizerCFK #CBias #ChampionsForKids

When the lights go out kids are the most affected.  As adults it's easier for us to understand why the lights may have gone out and know what to do.  Anything from weather to other natural disasters can cause the power to go out.  Here in Southern California, we don't have to worry about blizzards, hurricanes or other culprits, but we do very much have to think about Earthquake preparedness. 

Checking/restocking and adding to your home emergency kit is something many of us don't think about until its too late.  I grew up in the Bay Area and remember in vivid detail the '89 Loma Prieta quake.  To this day it affects so many of the choices I make!  I keep an elaborate first aid kit on each floor, extra non perishable food and always start to freak out a little when my gas tank gets below 1/4.  My husband still gives me a hard time about this, but he's never been through a major earthquake when all the gas stations go offline for an undetermined amount of time while they check for leaks, etc.

I'm so excited to be given the chance to participate in the Champions for Kids - Engerizer Light Up A Life Simple Service campaign to put together a preparedness kit for a local non-profit organization.  The goal is to put together a number of items to help keep kids safe in the event of an emergency.  It's an easy campaign to participate in and Energizer is looking to mobilize 20 million people by 2020 to participate.  Go here for more information to get involve and let them know you are participating!

I'm putting together a first aid kit, along with a flashlight, Energizer batteries, water bottles and a few other goodies to donate to a local Boys and Girls club.  I couldn't think of a more important place for kids to feel safe and taken care of in the event of an emergency!

Will join me and everyone else in taking a few minutes out of your day to help?

I think the Boys & Girls Club is a perfect place for your SIMPLE plan! I've never been through an earthquake and can't even imagine the fear I would have as an adult, let alone if I was a small child!
