Putting Out Fires and GlobalGiving Day of Matching

Recently, K.I.D.S. connected with Kathleen Nguyn, Communications Associate at our partner agency in Fremont, California. She quickly forwarded to us a tragic letter from a teacher in Freemont, California, about a family who lost all of their belongings in a fire.  They are temporarily staying with a friend, but the children are in desperate need of toys, blankets, school supplies, hygiene products - basically, anything and everything.

Upon hearing this, we immediately reached out to our generous corporate donor, Carter's. We connected them with a Carter's store in their neighborhood, which provided them with brand new clothing, at nos cost to them or our partner agency! Thank you Carter's and thank you GlobalGiving partner for making this a possibility!

As you can see in the pictures below, our partner received enough donations to help this family and many other
children as well.

K.I.D.S. is also asking that you Mark Your Calendars Now! 

GlobalGiving's June Bonus Day is fast approaching. On Wednesday, June 12th, GlobalGiving will match donations made through GlobalGiving.org up to $1,000 per donor. There is $90,000 available in matching funds so please help us reach our project's goals. Matching begins that day at 9 am EDT and lasts until funds run out or 11:59 pm EDT.
