There’s no better way to teach children about charity than showing them firsthand what it means to help. Turn on the TV and you’ll see just how many kids today need help from children living in countries with armed conflict to those who are being abused by parents in first-world nations.
Teaching your kids about charity is a great way to teach them what it’s like to be human. One day, your kids will inherit this world and in order to make this planet a better place, teach your kids about love and compassion through charitable works.
If you want to make charity a habit, consider doing these acts on a regular basis.
1. Donate Clothes
You don’t need to have a lot of money to help people. Start by looking in your closet; kid outgrow things so quickly you're sure to have items that no longer fit them. Make sure to tell your kids that you want to donate them to those who are in need and how, instead of throwing away used clothes, you can use them to make children happy. Donating kids’ clothing on a regular basis will show your kids that you care about the world’s future and in turn would learn a lot from you. If you want to go the extra mile in helping kids, you can choose to sponsor one. Sponsoring kids means not only providing them help once but throughout their lives until they’re old enough to work. Unakids is one of the charities around the world that gives education, food, clothes, and children to those who are living in countries torn by political strife. If you can, support charities that provide aid to kids that need help the most.
