Get Involved – Fundraise
Each year in the U.S., an estimated 15,780 children between birth and 19 years of age are diagnosed with cancer.
Want to give back and make a difference?
Here are some suggestions to easily raise funds, and have fun too:
- Families: Host a game night, pizza/movie night, or holiday party and encourage donations.
- Schools: Host a bake sale, walk/run-a-thon, an art night, or start a spare change jar.
- Businesses: Donate a portion of sales for a specified period of time.
- Community groups: Host a bike or dance-a-thon, poker/card/casino night, or a pub crawl.
Get creative and have fun!
Kids & Arts is grateful for our Champions that are raising funds to support our programs. We are humbled by the kind and generous actions of people inspired by our work, people who were strangers to us, and now are close allies. They want to stand up, get creative, and jump into action on our behalf. They are using innovative ways to bring new awareness to our mission and help us better serve kids with cancer and their families. And what do they all have in common? They all Googled ART + KIDS + CHARITY and Kids & Art rose to the top – thanks Google for the shout out!
