Celebrate an event
A growing number of Americans are integrating charity into milestone celebrations — a wedding, birthday, or anniversary. Teaching children about giving is a way of sharing values that are important to a family.
Socially conscious couples are making a donation in lieu of wedding favors. Families are incorporating charitable giving into birthdays and anniversaries by minimizing gifts, instead, focusing on activities that help those in need. Faith-based projects are effecting meaningful change through direct service, philanthropy, and community organizing.
The gift of giving
Charitable involvement has been shown to help raise self-esteem, develop social skills, foster an introduction to the greater world, and encourage kids to appreciate their own lifestyle.
The gift you give in someone’s honor will help empower those in need and help provide communities, especially children without parents, a chance for education, health, dignity and self-reliance.
