What does family mean to you?

Who does family mean to you?

Take a minute to print out our paper doll template. Fill them in and decorate them however you like to represent each person in your family. This is great to do with children or for anyone who is looking for a fun creative little activity to do. 

Why are we asking you to think about who’s in your family? Because family is kind of our thing. People are the building blocks of every family and our goal is to build them up. To help people get the healthy foundations and support they need in order to create brighter tomorrows.
