Little kids have big hearts! Give a child a World Repair Kit ($25) and the youngster will keep on giving. The boxed set contains a "205-page guidebook, passport with ink pad and four activity stamps to help you track your journey, reminder stickers to spread the positive message." It also lists environmental statistics, has ideas for helping others, and a non-profit directory.
Whether your family is interested in helping endangered animals or third world communities access fresh water, teaching your tots the concept of social justice and making a difference is invaluable. Just buying the item benefits the Serena & Lily Foundation, which works with youth worldwide.
