Service Projects (charities) to do with kids

Postby Jworld » Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:46 am

In early part of this year, when the papers reported on the "Chope Food for the Needy", I had wanted to do the "chope food" with her. I wanted her to see me in action and then copy my action to carry out charitable acts. But I was just too shy to approach the hawkers. Besides, my hubby didn't quite encourage that for fear that people might take advantage of my kindness. i.e. the stall owner might just take my money and not give food to needy.

Then, I continued to toy with the ideas of exposing my kid to service projects and charities and eventually decided to bring charity to her birthday celebration by celebrating with the less fortunate children, making her birthday celebration a service project. We did a birthday party at a Children's Home, while explaining to her that her role and task was to bring happiness to the poor kids.

Now, as we are in the long school holiday, I am exploring doing a flag day with her. (maybe just for a couple of hours so as not to overwhelm her)

This is the month of school holiday for all our kids. Besides having fun family outings and overseas trip, we can also choose a service project to do with our kids. After all, Christmas is coming and it's the season of giving, whether you're a Christian or not.

As we all know, there is a charity doing flag day on a Saturday throughout the year. For the first time, I have identified a flag day that I want to do and of course, I will be doing it with my kid. I have identified Singapore Association for the Visually Handicapped. I have been teaching DD about why we buy tissue papers from the Visually Handicapped (and sometimes also low income elderly and other people who have disabilities), which is having their flag day on 21 Dec, just before Christmas. I reckon that this volunteerism will give her a deeper understanding and hence enrich her compassion for the unfortunates.

Have you thought of doing something with your kids during this festive season?

My family and I raised fund for the charity this Christmas, as part of our service project.

SAVH Flag Day 2013

Not only it could manifest the Christmas spirit in a meaningful way, my family had a great time bonding. It's better than going on holidays or dinner outing.
