Here at Mountain Kids, we don’t believe giving back needs to reserve to one or two days in December. We encourage giving back all month long!

That’s why we’ve joined forces with Ninja Zone Gives Back  with our Toy Drive for Share-A-Gift and Ninja Zone’s Kindness Calendar.

Every day in December, we encourage our dancers, gymnasts and ninjas to commit an act of kindness that makes our studio and our greater community a better place.

From talking to a classmate they’ve never talked to before to donating an old toy to charity to mailing a note to a soldier abroad, our kindness calendar thinks outside the box to encourage the giving spirit in our young ones.

Feel free to adopt our December kindness calendar in your own home for the little tykes in your family who may not participate at Mountain Kids.

Or if you’re a teacher, hang this up in your classroom to encourage your kiddos to spread kindness throughout the classroom and beyond.

Mountain Kids is also currently hosting a toy drive for share-a-gift in coordination with Ninjas Give Back.

Whether or not you’ve got a tumbler, ballerina or ninja at Mountain Kids, feel free to bring in any toys that could use a good home throughout the month of December.

Looking for more ways to shake up tradition and encourage unique ways to give this holiday season? Forget adding to the mounds of toys at your house — give your kids the unforgettable gift of experiences this year >
