Whew! I feel like I just blinked my eye and we’re already in December. My brand spanking new high schooler is already almost halfway through her school year and life is moving pretty fast. If you’ve been following along on the blog or my social channels, you’ll know that I recently applied for the MBNA Rewards World Elite® Mastercard®. I wrote about the variety of different rewards points I can accumulate with my MBNA Rewards World Elite® Mastercard®. Click here in case you missed it!
The biggest benefit of the card is that it’s like having five different rewards cards rolled into one. From travel to merchandise, gift cards, and even charitable donations, I have the flexibility to redeem points for the rewards I want. Out of the variety of different rewards, one of my favourites (in addition to travel, which I spoke about last month) is being able to redeem points for charitable donations with my MBNA World Elite® Mastercard®.
Teaching the kids about charity has been an integral component of parenting in our home. Our kids have been volunteering at food drives, clothing drives, and charity events since shortly after they started to walk. This past summer, Ms. B came up with the idea of selling elastic band bracelets she had made to friends, family members and neighbours –The money raised was donated to help a local refugee family our family was supporting. She loves to bake and sell homemade goodies at fundraisers, and help comb through our closets to donate to the local second-hand store. Acting locally and thinking globally is an intrinsic component of Ms. B’s education both at home and at school.
Both her old elementary and current high school participate in helping local families in need during the holidays. It’s a great way for students to get involved and make a difference locally. I love that my everyday eligible purchases using my MBNA Rewards World Elite® Mastercard® can help us help those in need. It’s important, as a parent, to model the practices we hope our kids will imitate when they’re older. We speak openly about helping others, donating to charities and giving back to those around us. It helps us bond as a family while promoting socially conscious behavior.
