I came across this article today and thought it was very interesting. This Christmas Involve Your Children in Giving.
I was thinking about what things that matter to our family.
We have a sponsored child named Sony wouldn't it be cool if each kid gave him money for Christmas.
Or I was part of the creation of Life Campaign which drills wells for clean drinking water around the world.
Our church is sponsoring a drive for Habitat for Humanity.
Our youth ministry is going to Jamaica to help with construction and ministry at a deaf school. We are raising money for that.
These are just a few opportunities to give in our community/world. This Christmas we will include our kids in using some of our Christmas money to help someone in need. How about you, what do you plan to do?
