But there is always something very special when the kindness comes from a child wanting to help children less fortunate than they are.
When Charlotte, five, who lives in Taif, Saudi Arabia, found out that Lesley and Alan Pidcock were making a trip to Happy House she wanted to do something for our kids.
Lesley said: "She came to me with a bag of clothes and toys she had sorted out that she wanted me to bring, so of course I found room to squeeze them in."
Esther eagerly posed for a picture with the a giant My Little Kitty and some lovely dresses sent by Charlotte, whilst Elizabeth clasped one of the toys but wasn't being free with her smiles!
A very big thank you to Charlotte for being such a very generous little girl.
