Caring Causes: Helpen

 This holiday season, Helpen is the perfect gift for young families who want to raise a generation of helpers. Created during the pandemic, this subscription-based platform uses smart speakers to teach young kids the power of generosity through charitable giving.

Each week, families receive a postcard listing prescreened, kid-appropriate charities in five categories – Animals, Environment, Education, Poverty, and Health. After choosing a charity to support with a $1 donation, each child activates Alexa or Google Home to hear real-life examples of how their contribution is making the world a better place. (This video will explain it best.)

100% of each donation goes to the charity.

A subscription to Helpen, which means "assist" in Dutch, is a great gift for young families and a terrific stocking stuffer – kids learn that even small acts of kindness can lead to big change.
