Charitable Parents Raise Charitable Kids
Thousands of Americans have reached out to victims of Hurricane Sandy, and many are looking for ways to include their children. That kind of thinking is already bearing fruit, from the Point Pleasant, N.J., high school football players who are clearing out their neighbors’ flood-damaged furniture to the kids of St. Ann School in Bridgeport, Conn., doing their part by setting up a hot cocoa stand.
Experts say schoolkids’ charitable initiatives spike after national disasters such as Sandy. And the lessons learned can stay with children for a lifetime.
