Go For a Walk!
A great way to teach kids about charitable causes - and get some exercise at the same time - is through fun walk/run events. A lot of the smaller 5K or shorter events are very happy to have families participate. Most of the time you can bring a stroller along, too, in case your kids get tired before the end (check to make sure strollers are allowed before the day of the event, just in case).
At the top of the mountain!
My family recently participated in the American Cancer Society's "Climb to Conquer Cancer" in memory of a good friend. Not only did my kids get the enjoyment and pride of climbing Tucson's "A" Mountain (with a little help from Mommy and Daddy), but we talked about our friend and how the ACS helps patients and their families and why we should support these organizations. AND we spent some great time together as a family!
