What Gifts Pay For
In 2011, donations to Kidpower brought safety skills to help protect more than 200,000 people of all ages and abilities from bullying, violence and abuse all over the world.
Gifts and grants make it possible to:
- Provide and expand our extensive free on-line Library of articles, videos, podcasts, and webinars that is visited by over 30,000 people a month.
- Publish affordable publications that give in-depth descriptions of how to use the Kidpower method and curriculum for families, schools, and youth organizations.
- Consult with organizations serving children and teens who live and/or work on the streets in India, Nepal, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.
- Adapt our curriculum to better help people facing difficult life challenges such as disabilities, poverty, living in a high-crime neighborhood, parents with drug or alcohol addiction, or being targets of hate crimes.
- Provide scholarships in California so no one is turned away for lack of money from any of our public workshops.
- Provide free e-mail advice to anyone who writes to us for help with a safety problem.
