My ten year old son emptied his piggy bank
My ten year old son emptied his piggy bank and gave me every penny he owns. He said “here mummy take it”.
This was last time I got home from volunteering with Care4Calais, when I told my children what I had been doing.
A truly uplifting story told to me today by a repeat volunteer.
Children don’t question who the people are that we are helping, or whether they deserve what we give. They hear that people are in trouble and they want to help.
This is the true, natural human reaction. Questioning and fear only come later, when we supposedly ‘grow up’.
