Help Someone Else on World Humanitarian Day

friends sisters

How are you celebrating World Humanitarian Day? Every August 19th people across the globe recognize the efforts of those who do ‘good’ for others. Mark this special day with the help of your children! Kids can learn about what it means to be a humanitarian with these fun family activities!

Help the Community

The neighborhood families want to enjoy the local park. It’s a place where kids can get exercise, go outdoors and have fun. But, the park isn’t as clean as it could be. Help the children of the neighborhood enjoy the green space and hold a family clean-up day (you can also invite friends from school or the neighborhood to help).

Help the Hungry

It’s hard for your child to understand that everyone else doesn’t have the same bountiful breakfast, tasty lunch or hot dinner that she does. Give her the chance to show some empathy, and help out those who are less fortunate. Hold a World Humanitarian Day food drive at your community center or collect canned goods (for a food pantry) as a family. Older children and teens can also volunteer at a homeless shelter and serve a meal.

Help a Senior

Ask a local nursing home or senior center what types of volunteer opportunities they have for children. These may include reading to a senior, participating/leading an organized activity (such as an exercise class) or singing in a nursing home performance.

Help a Friend

Your child doesn’t have to look far to find someone to help. All your little humanitarian need to to is ask her sister, a neighbor or a friend from school what she needs!
