The Power of Youth

“Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.” – Henry Ward Beecher
Children are givers. Adolescents really do think of others. Teens care about poverty and orphan children on the other side of the globe. This has been proven time and time again as we have celebrated generous fundraisers and book drives in schools around Illinois. It’s inspiring to see so many kids caring about other kids. We as parents, teachers, and role models must continue to encourage children to have the moral courage and intrinsic motivation to want to help, to better understand how fortunate we are, and to continue to create a better place for all the children of the world.
