This time of year we are often bombarded with mail asking for help for various charities. I know everyone has his or her own favorites. If you are looking for a different way to get your kids involved and to teach them the importance of generosity, there are some organizations devoted to health and well-being. Not only does giving to others make us feel good, it actually increases activity in the brain’s reward region.
Here are a few you might consider:
A TEN DOLLAR donation to the Pan Foundation will provide a day of medicine to someone in need. The organization also helps those with chronic, rare, and life-threatening conditions get treatment. http://www.panfoundation.org
Your donation of TWENTY-FIVE DOLLARS will teach one kid to cook for life. COMMON THREADS teaches families about nutrition and how to choose healthier food and cook delicious meals. http://www.commonthreads.org
For FIFTY DOLLARS you can supply 20 US families with clean water. WORLD VISION will deliver bottled water and filtration systems to US families who lack it. http://www.worldvision.org
May good health and prosperity be yours in 2021.
