How do you nourish a spirit of giving in your kids?
If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Up to his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
– Emily Dickinson
As many of you know, my family and I have become friends with a girl’s school in Agona Swedru, Ghana. I’ve gotten to know Pastor Frank Bennin and his children, and his extended family of young girls called the Alolites Unto Such (the link is to their Facebook Page). My son, Aaron, “chats” with them on Facebook and you can see his Archie comics among the box of book and things they just received, plus other books of his he chose to send to them.
I’ve written extensively about them, how we got to know each other, and the value of giving in various columns and articles such as these (more can be found in the blog section):
