Your $35 a month will help change the lives of American kids
Child Champions are people who contribute their time, talent, and treasure to help children in need here at home—and who refuse to let children face the injustice of poverty and despair. Through their monthly gift of $35, Child Champions help:
- Provide essential items such as clothing, personal hygiene supplies, household cleaning products, and building materials for vulnerable families
- Provide much-needed school supplies to teachers and students in low-income neighborhoods
- Provide grants and scholarships that give impoverished kids access to post-secondary education
- Train community organizations to tutor and empower young people who have the potential to learn and lead but lack opportunities to do so
- Respond to disasters in America with relief and recovery efforts
Join a social network of people who are united against child poverty in America
In addition to providing much needed essential items, school supplies, educational scholarships, community training, and disaster response, your $35 a month gift will also allow you to be a part of an amazing network of like-minded people helping disadvantaged kids across the country. As a Child Champion you'll be invited to join our exclusive Child Champions Facebook community where you'll have the opportunity to directly follow the stories of young people being served by our programs, learn about their successes, and see first-hand how you are helping to positively impact their lives. The online Child Champions community will also provide you access to the quarterly newsletter, exclusive Child Champion volunteer opportunities and events, and of course hear from other Child Champions on how they are helping to rebuild hope at home in their own communities.
