And I have to say, I think this has rubbed off. Most recently my son's school asked for donations for a child that they "adopted" in Africa. It was his birthday and they wanted to send a large gift to him. I mentioned to my son that I needed to stop by the bank before school to get cash for the gift and my sweet 5 year old son went upstairs and when he returned was holding $5 that he'd taken from his piggybank.
When he returned from school that day he excitedly told me about the birthday celebration they had for the child in Africa and was so very proud of his donation. This holiday season we are going to provide some happiness for another child in Africa by making a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. This week we are packing the box with goodies for a boy my son's age and we will be able to track its progress to the final destination.
