CONSIGNISTA PROUDLY PUTS KIDS HELPING KIDS IN THE CHARITY SPOTLIGHT
Kids Helping Kids is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2009 by Lexi Kelley. Her idea to start KHK was inspired by the small acts of kindness she experienced from many people while recuperating from a bad car accident she suffered at 12 years old.
Lexi and a small group of friends organized their first KHK project in order to give other kids her age the opportunity to feel the impact, joy and reward of helping others. Its mission is to help develop leadership skills through youth–led service projects.
The project begins with an idea from one of the kids and are then designed, managed and led by a group of KHK kids that facilitate that project. Some of their recurring projects include Smiles for School, led by a first grader who wanted to help other kids who could not get their own school supplies, Feed My Starving Children where 44,280 meals were packaged to feed 121 kids for an entire year, a Handled with Care Boutique lead by a 16 year old who wanted to create a shopping experience for girls who could not afford a prom dress and the Gift of Giving where thousands of new and gently used toys are collected for under-served children to go shopping for their loved ones. Kids Helping Kids now has over 2,000 students from 117 schools in Fairfield County.
You can either shop their closet to help us continue to raise money for this cause or consign and make a charitable donation.
