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.

Catnip for pain relief

Caitlin from Northland

Hi all, a friend of mine has a beloved cat that is on “cage arrest” for the next month due to surgery not being possible to fix a fractured leg. While they were at the vet they noticed her cage was stuffed full with catnip and when questioned the reply was that it was a great natural pain relief.
This cat is a trooper but we can all see she is still struggling from time to time so I’m writing in hope someone may be growing catnip or even have a few seeds that we can plant ourselves.
I personally would be more than happy to provide finance for anything that could be given but of course donations will be welcomed with open arms.

Cheers, Caitlin.
