Push Up Challenge with Kai

When you are 7 years old, obsessed with YouTube, stuck in your house, and want to do something to help others, what do you do? You make a challenge! Kai is going to do push-ups every day in the month of May, starting with 1 on day 1 and increasing one more each day until he hits 31 on day 31! 


His family has agreed to donate $1 for every push up he does ($496 if he does them all!) to two charities Kai has chosen, Feeding America and Makenzie Cadmus. A note from Kai:

"I choose Feeding America because they help by feeding people in America who aren't able to get food on their own. I choose to help Makenzie because she has EB (epidermolysis bullosa) which makes her skin really weak and gives her a lot of pain. It makes me sad. I don't think any kids should be in pain every day and I want to help her."

You can help in a few ways:
1. Support Kai's wishes to help his friend, Makenzie, and folks with food insecurity by donating to his quest here!
2. Do the challenge yourself! Collect money or just share with friends to raise awareness for what Kai is doing for Feeding America and Makenzie!
3. Check out Makenzie's info for more about EB, the worst disease you've never heard of. www.facebook.com/makenziecadmus or donate directly to https://www.gofundme.com/f/25qu8us
