Grandma’s Charity Challenge

Calling all grandmas and others who want to encourage charitable giving by children they love. Find out how to create a challenge for your grandchildren here. Share what you do to get children in your life interested in being part of the solutions to problems of our world.

There are so many wonderful nonprofits that appeal to children’s interests. Some help other children, like St. Jude’s for children with cancer for a local organization, or UNICEF for international interests. Others are dedicated to wildlife or animals that need care – these are usually a winner with children. Heifer lets children buy a goat for a family in need. And still more are dedicated to research, education, and the arts. If you have an interest in these, you can convey that to your children or grandchildren by showing them the impact these organizations have.

Take a look through the blog posts to see what will appeal to the children in your life, and celebrate a birthday or other special occasion by helping them make a charitable gift.

  1. I’m a little late in this conversation, but I enjoyed seeing everyone’s comments about the Jennings Trail. I was also a bus leader when my son was in second grade (he’s now 34!). A cousin who is coming to visit is interested in local history, and I thought following the Jennings Trail might be fun. I know I have a book/pamphlet somewhere in the attic, but I’m so glad to see (thanks, Katie!) that I might be able to pick one up at the Historical Society–much easier than doing an archaeological dig in my attic. The Trail should definitely be part of the curriculum–my son and his friends still remember that field trip.
