My family got an amazing opportunity recently courtesy of Elmer's and Collective Bias. We were given $100 to shop for school supplies. Check out the Elmer's website. Follow Elmer's on Twitter. Like Elmer's on...
Raising Kids Who Give
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Capital One. All opinions are 100% mine.
Giving to others and giving back feels great. This is something that we have done for years. My husband and I agreed that at an early age, we should do what we can to make certain that we teach our children about the value of giving back.
For years, we have done many things with our children during the holiday season to help teach the about the importance of giving back. We have:
- packed cans and boxes of food at our local food bank.
- volunteered to serve food on holidays.
- collected cans and clothing to give to needy families.
- written letters to those who might not be seeing family during the holidays.
- made cards for soldiers overseas.
There are other things that we have done as well but at the heart of everything that we do, we make certain that our kids understand what we are doing and why we are doing it.
