Giving Back with Sunny Day Academy this Holiday Season

Holiday Giving

There’s never a wrong time to help others. Whether that be through volunteering your time at a hospital or nursing home, or donating money to a nonprofit organization, taking the time to give back is important. What’s even more important is teaching younger generations about empathy, kindness, and philanthropy.  At Sunny Day Academy, we believe the holidays provide a wonderful opportunity for parents to teach their children these lessons.

 

Why Giving Back is Important

The reasons seem obvious. We’re helping those less fortunate, giving back to individuals who need it most. However, philanthropy and volunteer work can be just as beneficial to those doing the giving.

  • Improved Health: Studies suggest volunteering lowers stress levels and helps manage chronic health issues
  • Social Skills: Volunteer work provides the opportunity to meet and talk to new people, learn empathy and humility towards those that are different or less fortunate.
  • Sense of Value: Helping others and giving back simply feels good. It provides a sense of personal value in life that money simply cannot.
  • Stronger Community: They say it takes a village. A community where members are willing to help each other and look out for each other provides a sense of teamwork, security, and camaraderie.
