Ringing the bell at Christmas is one way to help those in your community.

There are so many Christmas charities that help children too. You can also check with local churches and charities to do everything from packing food boxes for less fortunate families to distributing toys to kids in your community. Or simply encourage your children to buy gifts that give back so their loved ones get beautiful gifts and a portion of the proceeds goes to a worthy cause.
I'm not sure what cause my 6 year old will pick to support next. But whichever one he chooses, we'll be right there learning from him through his generous spirit.
