Help Other Kids

What’s the story?

It may be a little sad or scary to think about kids not having enough food to eat, or shoes that fit, or hats and mittens when the weather gets cold. Unfortunately, 1 out of every 4 or 5 kids in the United States lives in a family that can’t always afford the basic things in life.

Sometimes a child might be fighting an illness for a long time or need help with their reading or at school.  All kids should have the chance to focus on being a kid and having fun, and there are things you can do to help make sure they have what they need so they can do just that.

What Can I Do?

Share What You Have

So many times our books, clothes, and toys are still in perfectly good order when we are done with them. Before you go back-to-school shopping or before the holidays roll around, clear out your closets and donate your still wonderfully good stuff to a nonprofit helping homeless families or children in any number of other challenging situations. Check our nonprofit partners looking to share your treasures with others.

Be a Friend

Sometimes just being the friendly face or the one with the listening ear is all another child needs to get through a challenging day. Never underestimate the power of being the KIND one in the room, and the power your acts of kindness have to inspire those around you.

Lead By Example

There are so many ways to help our friends, but sometimes it’s not as easy to help people we do not know. And yet, helping those people, those we don’t know, can impact them in ways we can never imagine. Kids can relate to other kids, so you play a very important role in helping those around you who my be struggling at home, at school, in life.
