Charitable Giving For Kids

While many of us bemoan the heightened consumerism of the season and the proliferation of stuff in our homes, it can seem like a stretch to give a donation in a child’s name. Create a teaching opportunity by giving a donation and a thematically linked small toy to spark conversation that will resonate with kids. Here are a few ideas:

Give a trio of rabbits through Heifer International along with Ittybit from Bunnies By The Bay.

Pair donation to Habitat For Humanity with a tool kit.

A donation to your local food depository can be accompanied by play food.

Contribute to Doctors Without Borders and give a doctor’s kit.

The World Wildlife Fund makes it easy with adoptions for over 100 species. Each adoption kit includes a plush toy, gift box and framed certificate and photo.

We support our readers with carefully chosen product recommendations to improve life at home. You support us through our independently chosen links, many of which earn us a commission.
