September is Fruits & Veggies – More Matters Month, and it’s a great month to start working towards a healthier diet by incorporating more fruits and vegetables into every meal. With kids back at school, it’s also a great time to encourage children to make healthy choices when they’re away from home too. A lot of children – and adults – don’t eat the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. In fact, the Produce for Better Health Foundation reports that up to 90 percent of children and adults do not eat enough fruits and veggies. During the month of September, turn that statistic around by getting everyone in the family to include more healthy foods into their breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

A car donation may not seem like much, but it’s an incredibly kind and generous gesture that could help to make a difference in the life of a child. A car donation can help to provide hope, strength and joy during a time in a child’s life where they are faced with difficult adult situations. Many children are forced to go through things that no person should ever have to, such as the diagnosis of a life-threatening medical condition. Thankfully, Make-A-Wish helps to grant the wishes of children who needed to grow up a little sooner than expected.
