Virtual Event Virtual Event

Soaring with Gratitude

Say thanks with handmade airplane-themed gifts for volunteer life-flight pilots

Did you know that at just one single organization in the Midwest, more than 250 trained pilots volunteer their time, talent, airplane, fuel and operating expenses to provide free flights for someone with a medical emergency? We think that’s pretty incredible, and we also think it’s important to say thank you when we see someone doing something for someone else – small, big, or anywhere in between!

At this hands-on virtual event, you and your family will learn about gratitude and how we can use it to help us better understand the importance of meeting basic needs. Then, we’ll put it all into action by crafting small airplane thank-you gifts for volunteer pilots. (And, we’ll make one to keep at home, too!)

Character Trait: Gratitude
Social Cause: Meeting Basic Needs
Nonprofit Partner: LifeLine Pilots

Note: We will continue to monitor local COVID-19 guidelines and mandates and when possible, we will host Inside Out Club events in person. If you are signed up for a virtual event and it switches to in person, you will be provided a two-week notice as well as a choice of attending in person or receiving a refund.

Until then, our virtual volunteer events have been designed to provide your family with an easy yet still meaningful way to give back right from home. We’ll have your supplies ready-to-go for pick-up before the event (see below for details), we’ll all learn from each other as we develop character together, and we’ll walk your family through each step of the project just as if we were in the same room.


Sign up below – space is limited! You must register to reserve your spot(s). If you are unable to afford the $10/child registration fee, please select the fee waiver option at the end of this form.


Supply pick-up will be at the Inside Out Club Executive Director’s house, 1109 Monterey Ct., Naperville, starting at 8 am the Friday before the event. You will receive an email if the day/time changes.


The Zoom link will appear on this event page 15 minutes prior to the event start and will also be emailed to you. If you’re having trouble locating the link, please call Lauren at 630-605-4011.


By Wednesday following the event, please drop off the gifts you’ve made to be donated. You’ll bring these to the same location you picked up the supplies and leave them on the porch – 1109 Monterey Court in Naperville.


Depending on the nonprofit and their preferences, we photograph and/or record our donation items and/or the drop-off. After we make the delivery, we will send you a recap to experience this last step of giving back with your family.

Please note: Events require registration of three or more families. In the case that we do not have enough participation, the event will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund. Additionally, Inside Out Club DuPage reserves the right to cancel the event due to reasons beyond our control. In that case, you will be contacted in regards to your registration and next steps.

We look forward to living inside out with you!
