A Joy to Share – Teaching Kids About Helping Others #KinderMom

Holiday time is magical, I always say that to my kid. People may not notice it right away, but it exists if you want to join and be part of it. Last year we participated in the CTV toy drive and I remember my boy gave a toy without any hesitation. He was happy and excited just to be a part of giving and sharing. I know kids learn by example. If parents show how even a little contribution can make a difference, this definitely helps kids, even very young, to understand the importance of giving back to people and community. Everything starts with the family.

KINDER AJoy To Share


I reminded my boy the time when he was sick and his aunt called him. How happy he was after their short conversation and how little he needed to feel better. I told my boy that he can help other people to have the same feeling, helping, for example, his friends, by sharing his toys and books, teaching younger cousins letters and numbers or treating our guests with a delicious creamy hazelnut KINDER Mini Eggs. And he sees that his attention, care and toys bring so much joy to other people.

KINDER for Holidays

It was amazing to learn that for the second year, KINDER has partnered with Children’s Miracle Network with the “A Joy To Share” program. The “A Joy to Share” program is one of the ways KINDER is helping bring joy to families this holiday season. It is a wonderful opportunity to teach our kids about what it means to help others. We were excited to create a holiday greeting card for the children in a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital. My boy was so involved in creating saying that his card can help recover another boy or girl in a hospital. So inspiring, you can do this too - for each greeting card that is created, KINDER® will donate $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network up to $25,000.

  4. Giving back is very important in this day and age when there are a lot of people hurting out there. I agree that if parents start by example it will ultimately rub off on their children. A very good thing!

  5. I'm sure the children will love the holiday card that your son helped to create. This sounds like a wonderful program that focuses on the true meaning of Christmas - giving to others in need.

  6. And yet another reason to absolutely LOVE Kinder!! I adore Kinder, and all of their goodies, even though we can't get my favorites in the USA; but I love to support them when I can. I love this giving back program.

  7. I love the greeting card feature that Kinder has on their fb page. Teaching kids at a young age about the joy of sharing and giving will help them later on appreciate the things they have.

  22. Kinder is a company with a heart. Children's Miracle Network is a wonderful program. It is nice that not only are they donating money, but encouraging people to do something nice for these kids. I will have to give their chocolate a try.
