Katy Perry Kicks off Christmas Celebrations, Spends Time with Children of the Community

Katy Perry shared that it was important to spend time with children and make them realize that they are valued

Katy Perry is one of the biggest celebrities in the world of music and she’s kicking off the holiday season spreading a lot of holiday cheer. The singer attended a fun-filled event to kick off the Christmas season where she spoke about her goals for the upcoming year and caring for children in the community – a cause that is very close to her heart. Talking to People magazine, she said, “For my personal self, I really want to streamline my life and create continual balance. There’s a lot of wonderful, personal things coming up in the future, which are exciting - like creating my own idea of family.”

Katy gave out essential items to the children at the Boys & Girls Club, along with a hand-selected present for each child, that she chose herself. She even helped transform the clubhouse into a winter wonderland complete with snow and fun activities like storytime, pictures with Santa Claus, sledding and cookie decorating. Speaking of the same, she said, “I think sometimes we feel overwhelmed about how to contribute and give back because there are so many choices. It’s all about simplifying by starting in your local community. It’s about starting with your family first and your friends and your community and keeping it local because that’s where you can create the most change and cause the most ripple effect.”

The singer also shared why she believes in spending time with children. Katy concluded, “It’s not just about giving money. It’s a lot about giving your time. That’s the most valuable thing. I just hope they realize how much people do care about them, and are invested in their futures and in education. Education is really the key to me. That is the solution to so much, and it’s something that I like to highlight. Children mean so much to me because they are innocent and they make us believe in innocence again, in a chaotic world.”
