Children are innately compassionate and emphatic. And there will never be a “too young” age to teach a child to help those in need. And in helping others, they are also helping themselves and learning a lot as well. That’s why I recommend parents to bring their kids to Somewhere Over the Rainbow – an event designed for children to have a concrete act of helping their friends who were victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
By doing concrete acts, the kids will have a better understanding of what it means to help other kids. And by doing it in a fun and encouraging environment, I’m sure this activity will be imprinted in the little participants’ hearts and mind until they get older. There will be an interactive storytelling, discussion of the calamity, writing, singing and a whole lot of helping through fun on December 1 and 8, 3 PM at the Children’s Section of Fully Booked at BGC. Donations of toys, clothes, shoes and food will be accepted and coursed through Camp Aguinaldo Relief Operations and ABS-CBN Foundation. Likewise, monetary donations will also be accepted and turned over to World Vision. The children can also buy books to donate to their Visayan counterparts.
