Educating your children about charity is very important, because help it can help them to develop compassion for others. Charity can also be a tool for them to help them cope with bad news they might pick up here and there: it’s the feeling that there is something they can do to help and change things for the better. And us parents are the blueprint. If they see you getting involved with charities, more than likely they will follow your example. This month I have a collection of great posts to read about how children can get involved.
First, I have Sanna’s brave little daughter (Her blog is called Wave to Mummy) getting a haircut and donating it to the The Little Princess Trust, which is a UK-based charity, that provides wigs to children and young people with hair loss, whether this is through cancer treatment or other conditions such as alopecia. Little Princess Trust also raise funds for research into childhood cancer. After making their donation, Sanna and her daughter also received a certificate from the trust via email which they printed out and kept.
Next, I have another interesting post for you to read: Emma from Dirt, Diggers and Dinosaurs went to a charitable rave party and even took the children! It was of course one of those very trendy kiddie rave parties but this one was also benefiting a good cause. Organised by Happyface Family Rave, the party looked truly fantastic on her photos and even the littlest person enjoyed it. A proportion of the ticket sales and other monies was donated to the Peter Pan Centre which provides high quality care, support, and education to children with special needs.
Come back next month for more charity news!
