Cardz for Kidz, Inspiring Smiles

$450 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 44 months
Ike Nwankwo  CHICAGO, IL
Cardz for Kidz! is a certified nonprofit dedicated to uplifting the spirits of disheartened children and solemn seniors across the globe by delivering inspiring homemade cards. We've been able to deliver nearly 80,000 cards to kids and seniors in over 35 different countries. We're primarily partnering with smaller hospitals/homes who don't receive as many donations since we know those locations often get overlooked by other organizations and we want to encourage those kids as well. 

One key factor with our partnership with each location is every hospital/home has to promise they'll deliver all the cards room to room. Based on experience, we understand it's the kids and families who are confined to their rooms who often need the most encouragement and/or something uplifting to take their minds off their condition. We're currently striving to raise money in order to not only deliver cards to our partner hospitals/homes, but to purchase a GO Kart (portable video game system) for them as well.  Just like we make sure all the cards are delivered room to room,  we're finding even more ways to engage the patients who can't leave their rooms AND thank the hospitals/homes for being great partners. 

We're hoping we'll receive donations from some of our corporate partnerships, but we'd like to raise enough money from independent contributors to purchase at least two of these systems on our own ($7,000)! 

Here's a Facebook Live post where our founder personally describes why he feels this is so important - https://www.facebook.com/cardzforkidz/videos/185413949068198/

Recently we haven't been receiving many donations from individuals, but we've been adding new hospitals/shelters inside and outside of the USA. If you could make any type of donation that would be VERY helpful!
