A few months ago I challenged Bailey to give away her money to someone in need. I set some educational goals and every time she met the goal she was rewarded. Well she made every goal every week. Therefore she had close to $100 in the pig.
I told her that she could help a family in need. We researched Kiva and I helped educate her in the reality of world poverty. She was moved to action and she gave $25 to a local African entrepreneur. Last week that loan was paid-in-full. Now we get to do another loan.
It’s a small way to help shape our kids to be generous and to really practically help someone who is motivated and has dreams but they need some initial help.
