Recently I participated in a Clothing drive... and it was interesting for me to see just how in need people really were... just for socks even. There were men... who were getting women's jeans as long as they would fit. It helped me to see how it could take two missed checks and anyone could be there.
I brought the seeds along so that they could see how fortunate to have what we have... though it may not be much... it's ours. At any chance I get I try to make sure that they understand where we came from and where we are trying to go. Whether it be donating to salvation army, food and clothing drives or volunteering at a nursing home.
So I ask... what are you doing to teach your children about building within your community? How do they see it? Are they resistant? Do they come with new ways to help?
