Corporate partner teaches children the meaning of giving
If you're looking for ways to introduce today's kids and youth to concepts such as global awareness, social responsibility and charitable giving, just ask the owners of KidsGive®. They believe that by teaching kids to be aware and care, they can have a real impact on our world – thus the concept behind KidsGive and their Karito Kids® dolls.
With the purchase of each Karito Kids item 3% of the retail price is directed, by the child, to one of four issues impacting children through health, food, homes and school projects implemented by Plan International USA.
By partnering with Plan to bring the child into the actual process of giving to, and understanding the development of, children's humanitarian projects around the world, KidsGive is successfully demonstrating how easy it can be to teach a generation of children what charitable giving really means.
Here's how children have made a difference to date:
- 30% of children voted to aid the "Food Project" in Ethiopia. Their funds are providing emergency supplementary feeding assistance to malnourished children under the age of five and primary school children.
- 30% of children voted to aid the "Health Project" in El Salvador. Their funds are providing vaccinations for girls and boys to help eradicate polio and eliminate Measles, Rubella and congenital rubella syndrome in the Americas.
- 21% of children voted to aid the "Homes Project" in Honduras. Their funds are helping replace open fire-pits in homes with safer, cleaner “Justa” stoves which produce less smoke inside the home that can cause respiratory diseases.
- 19% of children voted to aid the "School Project" in Haiti. Their funds are supporting Plan’s efforts to keep children in school while providing school books and equipment for the new schools being built in Haiti.
