Join us again for our annual 5k/1mile fun run/walk! We adapted our fundraiser for the safety and needs of our community last year and it was a great success. We have decided until further notice this is the way to best run our event…. virtual!

Adventures in Learning | Charity

Talking to kids about charity can be tough, but research shows that talking about charity is more effective than role-modeling. PBS Parents presents Adventures in Learning with Jennifer Cooper! https://youtu.be/p29dKpHnPjQ

THE SET UP
Talking Points: Kids often operate from a center of self so talk to them about how their actions will affect others. For instance saying, “When we raise money for this charity, the money will go to kids who need medicine so they will get healthy” will have more of an impact than, “because it’s the right thing to do.” Both are true, but one helps frame it in a relatable way. Keeping the Conversations Rolling: Bob Stains, from The Family Dinner Project offers these conversation starters to help inspire fun, thoughtful conversations about giving.
