"Children are great imitators so give them something great to imitate" (Anonymous) AND teach them to be responsible through their actions.
Kids4kids is a non profit organization founded in Hong Kong who inspire and empower kids of all ages to make positive changes in the world through their meaningful actions both in their local community and globally.
They host competitions like
- Art for a Cause - partnering with G.O.D to produce 6 unique designs for 'My Hong Kong' placemats
- Writing for a Cause- to engage kids with their writing skills to produce published books.
Products produced from these competitions are are sold to raise funds for children's charities.
Kids4kids community outreach program includes a:
Reading Program in which volunteer children read to younger children at kindergartens and childcare centers, to instill the love of reading in the children being read to.
What great ROLE MODELS for the younger children!
Play Program- Volunteer children go to the Princess Margaret Hospital to play with sick children and children with special needs.
Kids4kids have many great events which you can be a part of.
In April 2011 following China's devastating earthquakes they organized a group of young people to travel to Yunnan Province in China to help make a difference at Long Bin Primary School. See below.
