Kids Care Clubs are a great way to get KIDS excited about helping others!

Kids Care Clubs are groups of young people (ages 5-13) who work together to help others in their communities and around the world. Clubs are formed in schools, faith based organizations, and community-based organizations. Any existing group (such as a Scout Troup or an after-school organization) can sign up to be a Kids Care Club. There are more than 80,000 children in Kids Care Clubs around the world.

What kind of support do Kids Care Clubs get?
Clubs receive a monthly e-newsletter with grant opportunities and project ideas. These projects include step-by-step instructions, compassion and issues education, meeting activities, additional resources related to the project and information on possible partners. These projects are centered on issues such as literacy, hunger, poverty, the sick, and the elderly or seasons of service such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Earth Day and Veterans Day. I love their latest idea that helps kids plan PLAYATHONs to raise money for orphanages in Haiti.
