Similar idea with my 4 year old. He would often get a full cup of water, take a few sips and dump the rest. Mom and I explained that he shouldn't waste water as many kids in Africa (among other countries) don't have enough clean water.

He says let's send clean water to Africa for his birthday present. So all invites for his party asked for a small $ donation instead of a birthday present. We raised over $150. will, with matching grants, build a well/supply a family with clean water for a year for $75. The rest of the $ went towards buying a goat for a family to have fresh milk. He insisted that it be a brown goat, so it would give chocolate milk! ;-)

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Why didn't the "community" just donate those 500 to Toys for Tots?

Same outcome, different impact.

For some reason, I want to give this kid a thunderbird. Seems like he'd be worth it more than Joe Biden.
