Kids 4 Humanity is a charitable organization designed solely for kids. Today, more than ever, the mindset of our society has to begin to focus more on the issues confronting our world at large—Be it Global Warming, world hunger, poverty or a growing number of problems threatening our future. Our issues today are so important that it does not make sense anymore to rely on only government or even the many foundations or organizations that provide the charitable help for the world today. We need to make charitable giving and social and environmental concern more of a way of life for our society and the only way to do this is to indoctrinate this type of behavior to our world’s future- our kids.
Kids 4 Humanity is an attempt to create a grass roots organization where children are the main asset for this change and where children can find causes that they are interested in to make this difference. Kids 4 Humanity is be a lightning rod and serves mainly as a promotional organization to recruit members and act as a feeder organization for all types of causes. We are not affiliated with any single church or religious group but a spiritually based group embracing all religious persuasion and beliefs. We have only one goal. Teach our children that doing charitable activities and caring about social and environmental issues is not only the right thing to do but that it can provide immense personal satisfaction as well. It is a known fact that one way to sometimes eliminate your own problems is to take on someone elses. People who do charitable work will often tell you that it is addicting once you start. We certainly hope this is true for this is one addiction that our society could surely use.
Being a member in Kids 4 Humanity is about having some fun, meeting new people and making a difference in the world all at the same time. We believe this can be done. While most kids- like most people are selfish and me oriented, we believe that it is possible to be both selfish and charitable at the same time and this is where our group will thrive. We have created an innovative method of acknowledging ones charitable work by creating what we call “charitable credits”. As a member of Kids 4 Humanity, our kids will earn credits for charitable work which will be validated and tracked by our national system. Parents should be very supportive and will most often urge their kids to get involved due to the positive record of accomplishment one will achieve for doing this type of work. As we all know, extra curricular activity is a key component for kids in high school, getting into college and other programs today and parents are well aware of this fact as are kids. The bottom line is charitable work can be an asset as well as the right thing to do for our world.
