Hi Green Kids!

Welcome to the Green Kids Club Newsletter where you can keep up with the Green Kids Club happenings each month, learn some new things, and challenge yourself as a true Green Kid ambassador for the planet.

What's New at the Green Kids Club

Tis the season! Give the gift of reading and eco-cuddles with one of our gift sets. We’ve just gotten in some adorable new stuffed animals that go along with the animals featured in our books. (https://www.greenkidsclub.com/store/Gift-sets)

Monthly Challenge

As the weather gets colder, we usually go back in our closets for more layers. This year, think of those in the community that might not have that option and donate clothes and household goods to a thrift store or charitable organization. Most of these organizations, especially the larger ones, have a streamlined process to get unsold goods to humanitarian aid around the world and to handle unsaleable items for salvage efforts and divert them from landfills. All with the added bonuses of helping you declutter your home and knowing that you made a difference for someone in need! It's a win-win for everyone involved.

Animal Fact

Cheetahs are the fastest mammals on land. They can run up to 70 miles per hour (that’s like a car on the highway)! There are less than 10,000 cheetahs left in the wild grasslands of Africa.
