      "Children from the Atlanta Boys & Girls Club were brought into a room one by one and asked some simple questions. They wanted to know what the child wanted for Christmas and what their mother would want for Christmas. At that point, something remarkable happened and you must see it to truly understand."

      Watch the whole thing here......(I dare you to not cry :). )

      These Children Prove the Spirit of Giving Is Not Dead

    I wonder how our affluent kids would do with the same experiment.?

    Eg when my kids were that age.. I had the jewellery, the TV etc. as far as the kids knew we were rich.... and "Santa " filled their lists most years...(although most of it may have been 2nd hand..they never complained ....they got what they asked for)

    I think they would still do the same moyjos, it's the feeling of giving something they know the parents would enjoy.

    My boy was recently given $500 as a graduation gift from us, the very next day he spent it on Christmas presents. I begged him not to, told him I did not want anything, he still bought stuff (God knows what) but most of it is labelled "mum"

    Kids can't give much, but they do want to contribute and they do really well when they are included in decision making and valued because it's part of their need to contribute and belong.
