Making Ear Guards, Raising Money, And Giving Back: How Kids Are Proving Our Future Is So Bright
Little Things – https://www.littlethings.com/kids-giving-back
Adults are having a tough time trying to navigate our world right now. This is uncharted territory for everyone, and we’re all still figuring it out.
As we all grapple with our feelings and making sense of this whirlwind moment in history, it’s important to take a look at our kids.
Depending on how old your kids are, they have different levels of awareness of what’s going on. It’s hard to shield kids from what’s happening. Yet we have to applaud our kids for tackling this situation they may not quite understand. Their lives have also been upended, and they’re doing the best they can.
In the midst of the chaos, kids are finding ways of giving back.
They are thinking of those less fortunate than themselves and doing what they can to help. The acts themselves may be small, but they say something major about their generation. We are raising kids who are compassionate and kind. They genuinely want to change the world, and the rest of us will all be better for it.
Teen Siblings Help Support Local Eateries and First Responders
Drew and Heather Paglia saw other efforts to use gift cards to eateries to help feed overworked first responders and decided to start a project of their own. The siblings created a GoFundMe campaign to purchase food and gift cards to local eateries. With the funds, they purchase food to deliver to first responders. Hospitals have even requested gift cards to give to patients who are being discharged so they can stay home and stay fed.
