A Message from Bridgit Mendler

So...you're a babysitter. We know you already care about kids.

Why not care a little bit more? You can help little ones everywhere get a healthy start and an opportunity to learn in their early years just by doing something you do most weekends anyway. Join me in taking part in Save the Children's #BabySitIn happening between Mother's Day and Father's Day.

It's simple. You volunteer your babysitting time to a family. They give a donation to Save the Children. @SavetheChildren uses that donation to help the world's babies and toddlers. What could be sweeter?

Disney star Bridgit Mendler joins kids in our nation's capital to launch #BabySitIn, a youth volunteer project.

Here's how to get started:

FOR BABYSITTERS

  1. Get a #BabySitIn gig. Schedule a day or evening with your favorite baby for any time between Mother's Day (May 11) and Father's Day (June 15).
  2. Get a sponsor. Ask your sponsors (as in the family you babysit for) to make a suggested donation to Save the Children of at least 50 percent of your babysitting earnings for the evening.
  3. Update your status.
    1. Text your friends. Pass it on. Get others involved.
    2. Tweet your followers. Use our handles @SaveTheChildren and #BabySitIn.
    3. Post the #BabySitIn badge to your social media channels like We Heart It, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
  4. Hold your #BabySitIn. Get ready to have some fun for a good cause.
  5. Keep on Sittin. Start all over again. Pick another date. Choose another adorable baby, cousin or neighbor. Keep it going.
