“Yesterday morning, my 10-year old declared that she wanted to sell lemonade and cookies and donate the profits to a homeless shelter. I immediately sent her to your web site and she decided to support Samaritan House. By the end of the day, she had drummed up $30, which we plan to donate through your web site.” – Brian Fitzpatrick
Fitzpatrick and his daughter are a wonderful example of how fun it can be to involve the whole family in giving back – especially during the holidays. As we get closer to the Holiday Season and begin to think about gifts and giving, it is important to remind ourselves, and our children, how much we have to be grateful for. There is no better way to foster a child’s giving-spirit, than to show them how great it feels to give to others, especially to those who need it most.
For a fun way to get your entire family involved, use our Holiday Drive Toolkit to run your very own Community Donation Drive to benefit Samaritan House!
