Supporting the Community Even From a Distance!
This April, Kids for Kids challenged our Junior Committee, members ages 5 to 18, to support their community in some unique ways. With being out of school and unable to host events, our Kids took on this challenge and surpassed all expectations!
- Over 50 masks made by member, Sofia Biondi, to support local hospitals!
- Brightening the days of several elderly facility residents by “adopting” them as grandparents and having virtual hang-outs just like family!
- Over 500 letters and hand-made cards are on their way to local hospitals and first responders at this very moment!
- Our high school students have given over 20 hours of free tutoring to local YMCA’s younger children through Zoom
- Planted tree and flowers in their communities to celebrate Earth Day
- Checked in on their family members, friends and fellow Kids for Kids Committee members

Similar to changes experienced by schools and teachers during this challenging time, Danielle has the Junior Committee utilizing the resources of Google Classroom and is continually exploring the many fun ways our Kids can collaborate and give back. Stay tuned for updates on Kids for Kids Brains for Change program launching September 2020.

$4,500 Raised and Counting!
Part of being a member of the Kids for Kids Junior Committee is giving their passion for helping others a voice and learning how to share the great work they are doing with peers and their own growing networks. Every year our Kids strive to host their own fundraiser, mostly through their schools and community gatherings.
With those options currently out of the picture our Kids adapted to the virtual world of fundraising by sharing their Personal Fundraising Pages and why they are a part of our Junior Committee. As a team, in just 4 short weeks, this group of 25 members have collectively raised over $4,500!
Being more familiar with fundraisers such as hosting bake sales, St. Jude Math-a-Thons in their schools, Mother’s Day gift wrapping at Barnes & Noble, our Kids are now learning how to adapt their “ask.” They each have been encouraged to promote their Personal Fundraising Pages among friends and family for donations of $1 to $25—now taking another look at the $4,500 raised this makes a BIG difference! Through the April Challenge alone, our Junior Committee brought about 30 brand new donors to Kids for Kids! They will be starting a May Challenge this week with more good deeds, sharing of their fundraising goals and spreading awareness of the great work they are doing, and we are excited to see their success continue!
Take a look at the amazing work our Junior Committee @kidsforkidsjr.committee has done over the years and follow them along their journey!
