“Filling our Jar From Afar has been a family tradition for years and something we take pride in as a family,” said Osborn, founder and author of the Jar From Afar.

The Jar From Afar was created with a simple goal: inspiring kids to give back by spreading kindness through little acts of love. The gift set contains a beautifully-illustrated paperback storybook, as well as an interactive gold jar to safe-keep the kids' heartfelt offerings. The idea for the Jar From Afar stems from founder, author and mom, Paula Osborn and the traditions she had in her home as she raised her children.

Osborn aims to encourage kids to leave a positive footprint on their communities by joining her family tradition of giving. Jar From Afar helps educate families, and empowers kids to help those who are less fortunate. Serving as a daily reminder that, “doing small things with really big love,” will make a positive impact both on the giver as well as the receiver of the blessing.

“Filling our Jar From Afar has been a family tradition for years and something we take pride in as a family,” said Osborn, founder and author of the Jar From Afar. “We are honored to share our story and tradition with other families. The book tells the true story of how the Jar From Afar was born and it’s something homes across the world embrace and make into their own traditions. The excitement of watching the contents of the jar grow reminds us that small acts of kindness can grow into something amazing.”

From ice cream coupons to loose pennies, kids are encouraged to fill their jar to the top over time. No token of kindness is too small! There are three simple rules to filling the jar:

1. Start the jar empty and watch your gifts grow.
2. Only add things that are special to you.
3. Don’t spend your spare change, add it to the jar.

Once their jar is full, kids pick a neighboring family in need of an act of kindness. With parents help, kids drop off their jar at their front door, along with the story book, then the act of kindness is complete and the cycle begins anew.

The Jar From Afar is now available on Amazon for $39.95.
