Kids on Wednesday: Giving back to your community

Hi friends,

Kids of all ages can give back to their community.  I try to make sure we focus at least once in December on a giving to others day as kids natural self-centredness can explode into a case of the gimmes at this time of year.  By helping your kids focus on others just for a short time, it will enhance their awareness of the world around them and get them into the right spirit of giving for the Christmas season.

Find out what opportunities are available in your area – is there a food bank or a soup kitchen that needs volunteers in your area?  Are there toy drives or angel trees?  Find something that you think your kids will enjoy, plan it and have fun!
