Callie, 10, from Grandview, Mo., takes part in the #UnboundSelfieDay.
Parents who give time or money to charity set an important example for their kids. They teach their kids about gratitude and compassion while developing the next generation of leaders and social entrepreneurs.
Unbound offers a personal way to help people living in poverty through one-to-one sponsorship. It’s a great way for a family to give back together.
It can also be good for your child’s happiness.
“Research shows that giving to others benefits not only the recipient, but also the giver,” said Michael Norton, of Harvard University’s business school and coauthor of ‘Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending.’ “In countries all over the world, and in children as young as 3 years old, we’ve found that giving makes givers happier.”
Kids want to make the world a better place. Here are five creative ideas from kids who’ve helped families living in poverty.
