We’re looking for more kids (18 and younger) like Cackie who are volunteering with charities, church groups, Scout troops, etc. — or just putting the Christmas spirit into action all on their own! Send us a photo of your favorite Santa’s helper in action, and information about the charity they’re supporting, and you might just see it featured at DVJournal.

PLUS: We’ll pick one of the highlighted charities and make our own $1,000 donation to the cause!

Just send your photo (with names and ages) of the kids you spot helping others — ringing the Salvation Army bell, collecting for Toys for Tots, working at a local food bank, whatever! — and email it to [email protected].

If possible, please include a link to the charity’s website, too, so we can encourage others to support the cause.

In our December 23rd edition of the DVJ Newsletter (sign up here), we’ll announce which one of the highlighted charities will receive a donation of $1,000 from Delaware Valley Journal!

Happy Holidays!
