I’ve been working with my daughter on not only being thankful for all the things she has (a comfortable room, a loving family, food, an American Girl doll — you know, the essentials), but I’ve also been trying to introduce the concept of charity.
My daughter is just 7, but I wanted to make sure she knows the importance of giving back, even at her young age, and helping those who aren’t as fortunate as she is. I found that there weren’t many options for getting a second-grader involved in philanthropic endeavors. But that all changed when we got the Heifer International catalog in the mail. She could buy a goat for someone in a faraway land. My daughter suddenly had a mission, a goal, and a way to marry creativity and charity with a concept that was easy for her to understand and accomplish. And boy, is she proud of her project.
So what did we do? Check out our story right here:
