Khloé Kardashian is teaching her daughter, True Thompson, the significance of giving back. On Dec. 9, the 36-year-old mogul posted about the duo’s recent trip to a local fire station, where they delivered toy donations that will be distributed to children and teens. Sharing an Instagram gallery of videos from their meaningful experience, Khloé opened up about showing True the value of charity.
She began by sharing that toy donations are down by 50 percent this year, which prompted her to take action. “Being kind to one another seems so simple but in these dark times we need kindness and compassion more than ever,” she wrote. “Calling isolated lonely friends and family. Checking in on one another’s morale to remind people that they are loved and not alone. Writing letters to children or elderly in the hospital… Sometimes we forget about the simple things that can completely change someone’s mood, and make their day.”
“I wanted everyone to know there are more, and in some cases, bigger ways to contribute with just small acts of kindness.”
The Good American founder went on to talk about the importance of instilling philanthropic principles in her daughter. “I know True is young but I think it is important for her to understand how blessed and fortunate she is,” Khloé continued. “It’s so important for her to see how we give back to others, ESPECIALLY in such unprecedented times. Children learn with action and consistency. This is just the first of many trips we are making.”
Khloé also noted that she doesn’t usually speak openly about her charitable efforts because “acts of kindness can be done in private or in silence.” But she decided to spotlight the toy donations after receiving inquiries about how and where to give back this holiday season. “I wanted everyone to know there are more, and in some cases, bigger ways to contribute with just small acts of kindness,” she said. “Even a wave from afar. True waved to a fireman today with so much happiness and pride, and watching him smile back told me everything I needed to know and more.”
She ended the message by encouraging her followers to donate toys and clothes to local sites, such as fire stations, grocery stores, churches, and small businesses. Read Khloé’s full post above, then check out this collection of charitable gifts that you can shop this season.
