Let Kids Donate Their Time to Others with Kids CWIST for Kids

This post is brought to you in collaboration with CWIST, all opinions are my own. 

A few weeks ago I let you all know about the Kids CWIST for Kids program at CWIST.com. CWIST is an incentive based website that rewards children for preforming CWIST’s or tasks that the parents set for them. These are either established tasks that the parent chooses from the site, or ones that they set themselves such as cleaning up toys or walking the dog. In celebration of the spirit of giving that this time of year is all about, CWIST has relaunched their Kids CWIST for Kids program, where children have the ability to complete tasks and earn a toy to donate to a child who is less fortunate this holiday season.

Last year I sat down and started doing research on places where the boys could volunteer and give of their time in order to help others. I am all for giving monetarily, but I think there is so much to learn from the giving of your time to others. What I found in my searching though, is that there were very few places that the boys were old enough to volunteer at. That is why I was so pleased to hear about the Kids CWIST for Kids program this year.

This is the perfect way for my boys to learn about giving of their time to others. Now, instead of earning rewards of TV time or even money for doing extra school work or work around the house, they can help earn toys for other kids. Not only does it teach them the importance of giving, but it shows them that they need to be thankful for what they have, as others have so little.

CWIST is contributing by donating the first $2,000 in toys earned by children completing CWISTs to family-supporting charities. All you have to do to get started is head on over an create a free parent account, add children and get them on their way to completing learning based CWISTs or other tasks that you set yourself. Teach your kids to give back with their time this holiday and head on over to CWIST.com/HolidayGiving.


  1. That sounds like a great program. It would be nice to get involved and teach my boys to donate their time like this.

  2. I'm all in favor of companies who help me teach my kids the importance of giving. I'll have to look into CWIST further for sure!

  3. I think all kids should try to help those who don't have. What a great program CWIST is. It is so nice when a company gets involved to help others

  4. Every year we have a giving shopping day – the kids each buy gifts for the local Sharing Center. They really enjoy giving gifts to children who may not get any gifts.

  5. Amazing program! I think it's so important for kids to learn about the importance of helping charities from a young age…

  6. We volunteer at a food pantry throughout the year. My kids love giving back like this, and it's so important to teach them the importance of volunteerism when they are young!

  7. Sounds really great! We always give back, and the holiday's are no different! Its so important to teach kids young to give back! -Jeanine

  8. I do not have children, but this looks like a great way to teach kids to give back!

  9. I'm going to look into this a little further. I really appreciate you talking about it because my sister was trying to think of things for her daughters.

  10. I love this time of year for many reason. The touting of charities, and getting kids involved in them is one of the big ones (reasons). Thank you for sharing this info.
