For part two of our Save and Share Series we got to ask the Electrolux brand ambassadors on some tips on how to teach young children the Value of Sharing.
I have a 7 year old nephew, Calvin, an only child and apo, although we have no problems teaching him about sharing its his being too gracious that sometimes worries us. But with the Electrolux Clothes donation campaign, I think he will eventually learn to value some of his things and learn the proper way of sharing his old stuff .
1. How do you teach Kids about the value of sharing?
Mommy Janice:It is natural for kids to be in the “ME” phase as toddlers, but even at that age (around 2-4years old) when he thinks everything is his: that the world revolves around him, we can already teach them to share.
Chef Rosebud: It is very important to teach our kids to share. We should actually teach them the earliest time possible, like even as a toddler. It could be as simple as sharing his toys with other kids, or even food. We should teach them to be selfless and unselfish.
2. What are your thoughts on the Electrolux Clothes Donation Advocacy and on the upcycling of unusable clothesto make quilts and blankets for babies and small children?
Mommy Janice: Seeing for myself how people donated clothes and items that are not “donate-able” like formal gowns, retro shirts with pointy collars, bathing suits, and the like- makes this Electrolux concept brilliant!
Chef Rosebud: I’m actually very excited about this campaign because there are so many people out there who are really in need. It’s one great way of sharing our blessings with others. And turning the unusable clothes into quilts or blankets is a genius concept! Like for example, if you have costumes or gowns from school plays which we can’t really donate because no one else would wear them will become very useful again once it is turned into quilts or blankets.
Speaking of upcycling clothes be sure to check out our next post about Electrolux and Gawad Kalinga’s Trese partnership. GK’s Trese community will be the one to make the quilts with the materials that came from the Electrolux clothes donation drive.
