Raising Charitable Children

  • We all say that all we want is for our children to be happy, but what every parent (family member, teacher, volunteer etc.) really wants is for their children to be responsible, generous, loving, kind, thoughtful, and happy. These traits must be nurtured within kids by the caring adults in their lives. 

    That's why there's you--and Raising Charitable Children

    An easy-reading how-to guide for introducing children of all ages to charity and volunteering, Raising Charitable Children is packed with practical advice and inspiration, real-life stories of friends and family who have made philanthropy a fun, rewarding part of a child's life.
