Recap: @TedRubin @annegeddestweet and more on giving at @BruceSallan’s #dadchat

June 12, 2012

How do you nourish a spirit of giving in your kids?

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Up to his nest again, I shall not live in vain.

- Emily Dickinson

Make yourself necessary to somebody.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her.

It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.

- Mother Teresa

How do we teach our kids to give?!

This was the big question on @BruceSallan’s DadChat with Ted Rubin (@TedRubin), Anne Geddes (@annegeddestweet) and all of the DadChat women, friends and fans.

This special DadChat was dedicated to helping raise funds for shot@life (@ShotAtLife), a movement to protect children worldwide by providing life-saving vaccines where they are most needed. Over $1,400 was raised for Shot@Life in the online DadChat auctions and even more was made in direct donations – all in ONE HOUR!
