Starting Your Year Right: Charities for Kids

Share Button

Now that Christmas is over, you’re probably thinking of ways on how you can start the year right. While Christmas is a time for sharing our blessings, why not take it a step further and share more of yourself by donating to kids’ charities?

Since many people do not know how to go about making a donation, we’ve put together a list of a few charitable organizations that accept donations or are in constant need of volunteer work:

Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.)

This charity focuses on kids who are victims of tragedies and poverty. Donations made are used to buy new toys, books, and clothes. K.I.D.S. also accepts donated goods – some companies actually send some of their new products to K.I.D.S. to benefit children in need.

Samaritan’s Purse: Operation Christmas Child

Like the good Samaritan from the biblical story, this organization inspires everyone to show kindness to families that are victims of war, natural disasters and famine.

SOS Children’s Villages

Thanks to SOS Children’s Villages, abandoned and orphaned children have a place to call home. This charity helps orphans find foster families. Like a real home, they are taken care of and given a quality education.
