Nurturing a heart for helping others

Nurturing a heart for helping others: For a child to think about another family living a parallel, yet shockingly different life in Africa or Nepal or South America - or right here in Edmonton - can be a difficult stretch. But the truth is that some children walk miles for water or face imminent death due to violence.

How, as parents, friends, and teachers, do we nurture a sense of generosity in children and show them that community goes beyond national borders?

Several Edmonton families are working to do just that, and the benefits are touching and practical.
