I know that it will take a long time to fill the jar but hopefully the children will enjoy the anticipation of it getting fuller and fuller. I thought we would just use spare change but Grace got some of her dollars from her piggy bank and put them in. That's the spirit!

In an effort to help our children understand the concept of giving to others, we have started a giving jar. We decided as a family which organization to donate to. We asked the children what they would like to do to help others. Harris wanted to give people food and Grace wanted to help people who didn't have much money. Our local food kitchen fits that bill perfectly. I think that this will be a good fit for us because the children can understand giving food to others and it will help other people who live in our community.
