Kids Helping Kids Program Raises More Than $38,000 for Dreams Come True | Community Spirit
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- With graduations coming to a close and the summer starting, Dreams Come True is proud to announce 19 schools participated in the Kids Helping Kids program during the 2011-2012 school year. The schools raised $38,431 and sponsored the dreams of 19 local children battling life-threatening illnesses.
Kids Helping Kids is a signature program of Dreams Come True and brings together students and young people with dream recipients. Through the program, money is raised to sponsor the dream of a child who is battling a life-threatening illness. Fundraising projects can include car washes, bake sales, dances, talent shows, coin collections and many more activities.
Following the events, 100% of the funds raised by Kids Helping Kids go directly to dream fulfillment. Each group then hosts a Celebration of Life dream party, which in turns provides an incredible opportunity for the students to meet and spend time with their sponsored dream child.
Through the Kids Helping Kids program students experience the magnificent satisfaction that comes from helping others; and the dream child meets some very caring students who made his or her dream come true. Kids Helping Kids groups include schools, clubs, youth groups, and civic, religious and service organizations.
Schools, youth groups, clubs or any service/religious organization interested in participating in the Kids Helping Kids program, or would like additional information, can contact Dreams Come True at 904-296-3030.
