Of the organization, JCP writes that, "4-H is a youth development organization where the youth step up to the challenges of our changing, complex world. We call that a revolution of responsibility, which is a movement for positive change in every community in America. 4-H youth are a living, breathing, culture-changing revolution for doing the right thing, breaking through obstacles and pushing our country forward by making a measurable difference right where they live. That takes uncommon commitment. Learn more about 4-H here."
JCP is challenging all of us to help donate 100,000 pennies to each of these organizations. Link here to get involved and start donating and collecting pennies today. I hope you'll consider getting involved with this partnership and raising dollars for 4-H programs across the country.
One of my favorite memories of being in 4-H was showing cattle. I remember crying when I won my first trophy with my heifer, Reba. And, I remember posing with my first purple ribbon after I gave a speech about Limousin cattle. Summer days were spent making crafts, baking cookies, filling out entry cards, keeping records on cattle feed and adding pages to my 4-H book, all in preparation for the county achievement days. 4-H builds strong leaders and shapes the future of the agriculture industry.
What's your favorite 4-H memory? Why is the program important to you? What do you think about this JCP partnership to raise money for a youth-in-agriculture program?
