Doing Good Together (DGT) announces a unique, new resource to help parents build a sense of generosity and selflessness in their children simply by weaving some fun activities into their everyday lives.
The program, called Big-Hearted Families, is designed specifically for individual families. It provides a long list of ways children can be encouraged to think about the needs of others – from making pet toys for shelter animals to “adopting” their local food pantry. These activities, though small, simple, and often surprisingly commonplace, can lead to lifelong habits of caring, contribution, and community-mindedness.
Big-Hearted Families grew out of DGT’s founding commitment to inspire families to give back by volunteering together. Our newest initiative lets families practice the spirit of giving during the daily routines of child-rearing, with activities that fit a range of time constraints, budgets, and interests.
We encourage you to explore the Big-Hearted Families website.
