Humanity In Practice is about giving back at any age through purposeful acts of kindness.
Can an 8-year-old volunteer on their own?
Can preschoolers make a difference from their classroom?
Can seniors help without leaving their community?
Can youth give back over their lunch hour?
The answer is YES. Our hip projects can be done from your home, class, group or office. We make it easy for any age to help. From where ever you are. We connect people who want to help with those who need help. Our hip projects are flexible, done off-site and supports a cause here is Calgary.
Did you know?
- If children volunteer at a young age, they are twice as likely to volunteer as adults.
- Youth volunteering just 1 hour a week reduces at risk behavior by 49%!
Let’s Practice humanity together!
We are excited to be a recipient of the Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink program.
Your past support has enabled us to bring seasonal treats and gifts, creative play kits and books to children living in shelters. It has enabled us to connect to youth groups, supporting their initiatives around mental health and community engagement.
Our work continues. Part of what we do is to create volunteer experiences for children to help others. Through these experiences, children can practice kindness. They become aware of the power they have to make a difference. They learn empathy. And their self confidence, their self esteem is raised through these experiences.
We want to bring this opportunity to more young citizens. Your support will help us reach our goal of bringing this program to 1,500 Calgary children.
Every dollar donated will be matched up to 50%! Help us raise the next generation of philanthropists! Donate to Humanity In Practice through Birdies for Kids.
