Here's some great tips for an eye-catching application. First, be real. Present a real child. Many parents make the mistake of presenting a perfect child. Talk about that one thing that really bugs you about your child. Two, make sure to show who your child is, not just tell them. There's a big difference when you say, "My child is a leader," versus "Whenever my child is in a group, he tries to make sure everyone is hear before the group makes a decision." Three, offer the school a skill that you really possess that will be very helpful. Schools are always looking for people that are willing to call other parents for the annual fundraising or, for instance, a photographer for the newsletter, something like that. So, be specific about the kind of skill that you can offer. Those are three great ways to make your application pop.

100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving A Friend Through Cancer or Loss

Kim Hamer is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss, a modern, essential how-to guide offering tips on what to say (and NOT to say), and specific ways to support and love a friend, co-worker or family member who is coping with cancer, loss or any crisis.

Kim Hamer became a widow after her 44-year old husband lost his life to cancer. Their children were 12, 9 and 7 at the time. Before and after her husband’s death, friends and supporters came up with unique, creative and simple ways to help her family. She called them “acts of love” because it’s what they felt like.

Her book is a fun, straightforward compilation of many of those acts. The mission of “100 Acts of Love” is to help everyone understand and embrace their importance in the lives of their friend in crisis and to provide the tools and courage needed to support them in a truly meaningful and helpful way.
