Giving Chain

Sometimes we use a paper chain as a countdown to a special day or holiday, and today we're going to add a special step: generosity! Together, we'll build a chain with daily acts of kindness and each day when you tear off a piece, you'll have a new act of kindness to give to the world! Giving to others is proven to create a happier life for yourself, so this giving chain will make others happier AND us happier!
