Introducing charity to children, how did you do it?
With recent devastating world events it's made me think back to when I volunteered and how I can bring my little one up to be charitable.

Please comment with any good ideas to get kids involved with charity.
I love this question because it is so near and dear to my heart. For me, the answer is make giving "fun" and rewarding so that it becomes associated with positive feelings not sacrifice. When we started ECHOage to address this specific question, we were overwhelmed with positive feedback about how kids felt about giving. They got to choose their own charity and and see the impact that their birthday party had on the world. Thrilling for the child and so helpful to those in need. Never to soon to start the dialogue of giving.
