Every donation allows K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers to provide brand new, basic essentials like clothing, shoes, educational materials, and toys to some of the neediest children in the nation

Thanks to your support, we are able to continue providing our partners with the necessary items they require to serve their neediest clients.

We recently received this wonderful feedback from our community partner, Gaudenzia, Inc. In Norrisville, PA, an organization that helps people affected by chemical dependency, mental illness and related conditions. They serve 18,000 individuals annually through 141 treatment programs throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware. Toys are especially welcome for the children who are well too aware of the issues that their parents face. "We love the toys that we get from K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers. Craft toys (like the mosaic kits from The Orb Factory) allow children to show off and take pride in their creativity," says Joan Brown, Director of Programs.

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers was able to truly make a difference in the lives of the children served by Gaudenzia. By enabling disadvantaged children to creatively express themselves, we help improve their psychological state and prepare them for a positive future.

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers also received feedback from our community partner, Hands in Service in Sellersville, PA, an organization whose mission, much like ours, is to improve the basic living conditions of some of the poorest communities, locally and worldwide, and share hope.

Ed Tornetta, President of Hands in Service shared with us this testimonial:

"I wanted to share this picture and story of a young lady who happened to be at a pregnancy center in Coatesville, PA yesterday while we were delivering diapers and other TRU/BRU donations. While we were making our delivery to the center this young lady stated her 7 week old baby did not have a crib to sleep in and asked the center if they had one. The center did not have a crib, but we had one already assembled on the back of our delivery truck. We mentioned to the staff that we had a crib on the truck, they spoke with the young lady and we delivered the new crib that was donated through TRU/BRU to her apartment. She also received diapers and a Boppy support pillow as seen in the pictures below. When she saw the crib she had tears of joy in her eyes."

Thanks to the generosity of donors like you, we have been able to make a real difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Working with over 900 community partners nationwide, we are able to deliver brand new items to disadvantaged children and families when and where they need them.

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers is committed to improving the well-being, self-esteem and dignity of at-risk children, families, and individuals.

Our goal is to raise $25,000, which will provide $250,000 worth of brand new merchandise like clothes, shoes, books, educational materials, juvenile products, toys and more to disadvantaged children and families who are in need of the basics.

Please help us continue our mission by donating now.

Thank you again for your valuable support.

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers continues to impact the lives of thousands of children in need throughout the nation with the funds from the community at Global Giving. We are truly thankful for your generous support.

Annually, we are the charity of choice to receive all of the juvenile products donated at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, NV. After the show, truckloads of items from thousands of generous vendors are packed up and made ready for shipment to our community partners, such as Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada, which is dedicated to helping those who are less fortunate.

Giovanna, a client of Catholic Charities, pictured with her son, was surprised and delighted to receive a musical mobile for her new baby boy, Julius!

We would not be able to provide this wonderful product without your support. New essentials are only useful if we are able to deliver them to the children who need them most.

Our goal is to raise $3,000 by the New Year! Our timing is crucial as the cold winter months are here and warm clothing is needed by so many!

As always, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers guarantees a 10:1 match for all financial contributions. We have, and will continue to stretch your contributions to their capacity.

Thank you for making it possible for us to reach children in need nationwide!

K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Inc. is so thankful for your generous contribution, which enabled us to provide brand new essentials to children in need throughout the United States. With your support, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers continues to touch the lives of thousands of children all over the country.

 

Bronx, NY --

Tynesha Hendricks, founder of our community partner's Princess For A Lifetime, "Dress Me Up" program, recently reached out to us about putting together a princess party for 4 year old Maria, who suffers from a chronic medical condition that needs regular hospital care. The program, based in the Bronx, NY, has helped over 100 chronically and terminally ill children feel a little more special and a little less frightened about the procedures they often endure. Our incredible friends Annie and Jen from Ooh! La, La! Couture! responded without hesitation to make sure that Maria got her wish. Thanks to the generosity of donors like yourself and Ooh! La, La! Couture, we were able to provide for Maria and truly make her dream come true and uplift her spirit.

 

We would not be able to provide this wonderful product without your support. From our experience, we know product donations help fulfill the needs of disadvantaged and distressed children enabling them to look beyond bleak and distressing circumstances into a future filled with hope. The gift of brand new product demonstrates to distressed children that they are not only valuable, but worthy of being valued.

 

Las Vegas, NV --

In the beginning of September, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers attended the ABC Kids Expo held in Las Vegas, NV. Annually, we are the charity of choice to receive all of the juvenile products donated. After the show, truckloads of items from thousands of generous vendors were packed up and made ready for shipment to our community partners. K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers received about $200,000 worth of brand new products and provided a large portion of the donations to our partner, The Las Vegas Dream Center. Together, we will bring hope to thousands of needy children in the Las Vegas region.

 

Your support has proven to be an invaluable asset to our programs. Without your continued support, we would be hard pressed to maintain the level of support we currently provide. As always, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers guarantees a 10:1 match for all financial contributions. We have, and will continue to stretch your dollars to their capacity.

 

Our goal is to raise $5,000, which will provide $50,000 worth of brand new merchandise, such as clothes, shoes, books, educational materials, toys, home items, and more to disadvantaged children who are in dire need of the basics across the nation.

 

Please help us continue our mission by donating now. Thank you again for your valued support.

Every donation allows us to reach in-need children nationwide.  Here are some stories of how product donations have impacted the lives on impoverished children in the west coast and east coast:

NEW YORK:Sophia comes from a single parent home, and her father is all she has. He struggles to make ends meet as many immigrant families do, and after housing and food, there's very little money to provide brand new clothing for his little girl.

Jacob comes from a family where his daddy is very sick with heart disease, which prevents him from working. A sensitive little boy, he's anxious every time his dad goes to the doctor for yet another test, and senses just how much the stress is taking a toll on his mom.

Their community partnership with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Lighthouse Outreach Ministries in Copiague, New York has been able to help their families, and several hundred others, find a way to provide the kind of quality items that they otherwise could not easily afford.

We would not be able to get these wonderful donations to some of the neediest children in the nation without your support.  Thank you so much for your contribution.  We look forward to reaching more children in need than never before, and we cannot do it without your financial support.

CALIFORNIA: Through our partnership with community agencies, we are able to reach the neediest children and families. We recently received some incredible feedback regarding our product donations from Tasha-Nicole Terani, founder of our community partner, Every Child's Dream Foundation, in Westlake, California. The agency does remarkable work for thousands of orphaned and abandoned children. Tasha sent us this picture of "Avalon" (who was named after the place where she was found) and her brand new ladybug pillow pet, which, Tasha says, she is now cuddling with in her new foster home!

It is this kind of compassion and dedication that makes us proud to be affiliated with the agencies in our partner network. Most importantly, we would not be able to provide this wonderful product without your support. For every $1 donated, K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers is able to donate over $10 worth of brand new product to underprivileged families across the nation.  From our experience, we know product donations like these help fulfill the needs of disadvantaged children and adults, demonstrating to them that they are worthy of being valued.

Due to the tremendous support of our product donors, your gift is multiplied ten-fold: a $30 donation provides over $300 worth of new merchandise to needy families.

Our goal is to raise $5,000, which will provide $50,000 worth of brand new merchandise, such as clothes, books, toys, home items and more to disadvantaged children and adults who are in dire need of the basics across the nation.

Please help us continue our mission by donating now.  Thank you again for your valuable support.
