What awesome things do your kids do to help others?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Meet Eddie Writes. He's 7, and won a Wellingtonian of the Year award for philanthropy. He spends his spare time tie-dying t-shirts and ironing patches on bags to sell online - raising $10,000 for Wellington Regional Hospital. We bet there's lots of Eddies out there. Tell us about your kids' kind deeds in the comments.

Where are you choosing to rent these days?
