Helping Hands Day - Mo Anderson

Today we’re celebrating a giving nature and helping others! Our society thrives on kindness and genuine care and we need to focus on that now more than ever. Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Mo Anderson. Her hometown was Waukomis, Oklahoma. Anderson grew up on her parents’ farm before attending college and becoming a music teacher! After teaching for 14 years, Anderson decided to try something different and became a realtor. Anderson quickly found success and served as the CEO and co-owner of Keller Williams Realty International. With her success, Anderson has dedicated her life to serving and helping others through multiple charities and philanthropic organizations. You can learn more by reading Mo Anderson’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

So many Oklahomans give their time and resources to help others. You can learn more about Oklahoma Hall of Fame Members that are philanthropists on our website. Edith Kinney Gaylord and Lynn Schusterman are great examples!


Movie Time! So many movies have heart warming stories about giving back to others. Up! is a great example and you can rent and stream it now.


Storytime! There are so many stories that remind us of the importance of giving back and helping others. The Spiffiest Giant in Town is one of our favorites! You can hear it read aloud too. There’s also these awesome and inspiring stories of kids helping other kids!


Arts & Crafts! We all need to do our part in our families and our community and this fun give back bucket is great for the whole family! It’s even more fun when everyone gets to design a card that they think we should all do.This paper plate chick craft is a fun one to make for spring time and give as a gift to someone!


Make & Eat it! Who doesn’t love receiving food? We always love getting sweet treats from our friends! These yummy no-bake peanut butter bars are great and make lots to give to others (and some for ourselves too!). Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman, has all kinds of recipes that are great for sharing.

Listen to it! This fun playlist gets us all in the mood to help our community and those around us. It’s hard right now, but we can be ready to help out when we can!
