5 easy charity ideas for children

Teaching the lesson of giving is important.

When kids learn from an early age to care & give, their empathy grows stronger. As future adults, they become nurturing, caring, and supportive.

Adults also become happier when giving. Pursuing happiness has been believed to elevate your mood and recent studies have proved so. Studies using brain-scanning technology show increased activation in the reward area of the brain when giving to charities.

A fun way for kids & adults to bond and spend quality time together is to come up with a fundraising idea!
