Tips on teaching kids empathy and kindness pop up everywhere. Recently, my daughter, our dog, and I participated in the Committee on Temporary Shelter’s (COTS) fundraising walk, a perfect opportunity to find out more about how “fundraising” connects with kindness and empathy in an eight-year-old mind.
It’s snowing in Waterbury Center! Here in the CLiF office, we’re thinking about warm beverages.
More importantly, we’re working with the communities we serve to ensure children participating in CLiF programs have new books in time for the holidays.
This is what $25 brings a low-income, at-risk, or rural New Hampshire or Vermont child:
- A professional, inspiring literacy presentation such as an author/illustrator visit, writing workshop, or storytelling
- Two brand-new, high quality books of his or her choice to keep
This holiday season, CLiF hopes to inspire our friends with our 50/25 drive.
