Charity Starts at Home

cute video about teaching kids the importance of giving

It’s time for an all new episode of Adventures in Learning! This time we explore the topic of charity and how to talk about it with your kids. In this episode we show a simple idea for making giving this holiday season fun (and tasty). You’ll also see how our neighborhood came out to support the cause. It is one amazing neighborhood.

For me, the heart of the episode is this: Sharing our gifts, being empathetic and helping out our fellow man are powerful things. I like to think that by showing our kids they’re not alone and that they can make a difference, the world will be a better place for us all.

    Thanks again for this inspiring episode, Jennifer! We did our own cocoa stand to make money for the Philippines and were really successful! You can check out my follow-up on it here:

    Lori-Anne, that is incredibly fantastic! I love how you worked with the kids on it all. Isn’t it amazing what kids can do when you involve them?

    It looks like you had a super nice turn out too. I love that the Canadian government matched your donation to the relief efforts in the Philippines.

    You guys did a wonderful thing! I bet the kids will remember it for years to come.
