Wondering how to get kids involved in charity work? Raising children with a sense of awareness and the mindset of giving back to others is a great way to introduce them to a compassionate lifestyle.
The world doesn’t just revolve around our needs within the home, so establishing foundational relationships with those in need is a great way to broaden their horizons and teach critical life lessons. Discuss with them what is a volunteer, why they think there are people in need, what are the needs, what are the ways they can help.
The lessons children learn when they are young stay with them forever and shape who they become in adulthood.
Lead by example and be consistent, helping during the Holiday season is lovely and appreciated, but the idea is not to remember those in need on an annual basis and forget about them for the rest of the year. How about start with the Hunger Calendar? An entire month filled with activities to help others and to be grateful for.
