Thank You! We topped our #GivingTuesday goal!

Your donations can STILL be DOUBLED Now – Dec. 31st!

Thanks to the generosity and help of many people, we exceeded our goal by more than $1,000, and we had more than twice the number of donors for #GivingTuesday than last year! This is a wonderful start to our year-end fundraising campaign!

The $6,100 raised will be a big help in enabling Kidpower to continue to provide expert-quality free online articles, and other resources so that people have access to Kidpower expert knowledge and practical, actionable skills no matter where they live.

We were honored to also receive many heartwarming notes with donations about the positive impact of our educational resources. For example, many, many parents write to us asking for help because their kids are struggling with bullying. Here is a note about what this support has meant to one family:

Thank you Kidpower for all you have done and will do in the future for our children. For over 20 years, since my family was young, Kidpower has been a guiding force for me in learning about how to stop bullying. Thank you for helping me teach my children how to be safe with words and be kind with each other! I have been wanting to give something back to Kidpower, and this is the first time I’ve been able to contribute. It won’t be the last.
~Miriam Stone, Parent & Advocate

It gives us JOY to know that Kidpower is making such a difference for so many people. Your support in any amount helps to make this possible. My thanks to everyone who has donated, thought about donating, used Kidpower in your life, told us your stories, and shared our information with others.

There is still time to give and have your donations matched – one of our long-time supporters was so inspired by our #GivingTuesday campaign success that they decided to continue to match donations through the end of the year.

Please also consider recommending Kidpower to anyone you know who is looking for a great organization to support.
